Plex’s DVR Service Just Added More Device Support & Comes Out of Beta




Plex, the wildly popular media center software, has slowly been building up its DVR service. Now it is ready to take it out of beta and make it an official part of its Plex media server.

Today Plex officially announced that its Plex DVR is no longer in beta. Plex also announced that it is adding support for Android devices and Apple TV 4th gen so you can not only access recorded shows and movies but also have the ability to watch live TV streamed from its Plex server.

You can now watch live TV streamed through Plex DVR from your antenna on Apple TV as well as iOS, Android, and Android TV.

To use the Plex DVR feature, connect your DVR to your media center with an HDHomeRun or a USB Tuner. From there your media center or Nvidia Shield acting as a media center will allow you to record your shows and access them just like you would with any Plex server content.

Plex’s DVR allows greater functionality and freedom at a significantly better price than traditional cable or satellite TV. In addition to a tuner and antenna, users only need a Plex Pass, which costs $4.99 per month, $39.99 per year, or $149.99 for a lifetime subscription.
