Plex Beta To Navigate All Your Streaming Services

The most recent beta features of Plex offer a modern answer to one of the most common modern problem: having to trawl through Disney Plus, Netflix, HBO Max, and other streaming services to find something to watch. The firm unveiled a new “Discover” tool that collects and suggests material from several streaming services, as well as a universal watch list that compiles everything you want to watch in one location.

The Discover screen functions similarly to the homepages of most streaming services, providing suggestions on what to watch next, but with the added capability of displaying material from many libraries. It should not, however, overload you with options that you do not have access to. There is a feature that allows you to choose only the streaming services you are subscribed to. Plex has been attempting for several years to establish itself as a legitimate one-stop-shop for streaming.

They have also introduced a new “watch from these locations” tool, which is useful if you already know what to watch but aren’t sure where to look for it. It adds a A section was added to the movie and TV program information page that displays which streaming providers offer that material. Plex may even direct you to the streaming service from the website in some versions of the software (which is accessible on devices such as the Apple TV, Roku, Fire Stick, smart TVs, PlayStation, and so on).

The number of streaming providers Plex supports with these capabilities is extensive. It contains all of the major names, such as HBO Max, Netflix, Disney Plus, Hulu, Amazon Prime, and Peacock, as well as about 150 others (such as Martha Stewart TV). With a few exceptions, if you can legitimately stream what you’re viewing someplace on the internet, Plex can inform you about it. You may also instruct it to search your Plex libraries for self-hosted videos or other files.

According to Plex’s help page, not all platforms enable forwarding the user to the associated streaming app.  According to Reddit posts, one major platform that can’t handle the linking is Roku.
