Plex says rental prices start at $3.99, with new movies added to the daily. You can also add the selection to your Plex Watchlist on Plex for when you’re ready to watch or when it becomes available (here or anywhere in the streaming universe.)

“With today’s availability of amazing titles like Barbie and The Color Purple, we are now offering consumers even more choices and movie selections all in one place,” said Keith Valory, Plex’s CEO. “Our goal has always been to bring consumers a less chaotic and more fun experience when they sit down together to watch a movie or show. Let’s face it: people don’t know what to watch and, worse yet, where to watch it. We started last year by creating a single window into all streaming services so people can easily find what to watch, no matter where it is. With the addition of rentals, we are staying focused on our goal to be the first place people go to find any streaming movie and show, watch them, rate them, talk about them, and recommend them to friends and family.”

Plex currently offers hundreds of live TV channels and over 50,000 on-demand movies and TV episodes. You can access them for for free through Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Android TV/Google TV, Roku, as well as smart TVs, including LG, Hisense, Samsung, Sony, VIZIO, plus Apple and Android phones and tablets, game consoles, and more.
