Plex Review

Take a look at my Plex review video for full details or check out the information below instead. This app can be installed on almost any device e.g. Firestick, Fire Cube, Nvidia Shield, Android box, Chromecast, phones, tablets, PC and more.

The Amazon Firestick is certainly the most popular streaming device on the market right now due to its low price and ability to jailbreak it with just a few simple tweaks. It’s a perfect streaming device for beginners as well advanced users who wish to cut the cord.

What is Plex?

Plex is basically a giant streaming application! It has a markedly huge library of thousands of free (ad-supported) movies and TV shows. As well as over 250 channels of live TV available 24/7. It’s also received a brand-new update recently with new features that make streaming even easier. Above all, it’s completely free, without any payment or subscription. It also works almost everywhere, delivering content to and from more countries worldwide than any other streaming service. But content does vary depending on your location.

What is Plex Discover?

A further feature that’s been added very recently is the Discover section. This works similarly to JustWatch and ReelGood. You choose the streaming services you have access to so that Plex can pull in the information from those services. You’ll then be able to see what’s available for you to watch across all of your selected streaming services; all in one central and convenient location. However, to use the Discovery section and save your choices, you must sign up for a free Plex account.

Plex Media Server

As well as offering free content, Plex is also a media centre. In brief, if you have lots of your own personal media, you can access and share all of your entertainment across almost all of your devices.

"Plex is the key to personal media bliss. Once you download our free and easy-to-use software where you store your files (usually a computer or external hard drive), it takes care of the rest. Plex magically scans and organises your files, automatically sorting your media beautifully and intuitively in your Plex library. Once you've downloaded our app on your favourite devices, you'll be up and streaming everything in minutes."

What is Plex Pass?

Plex Pass is a premium service that additionally gives users access to several features. At this time, this costs £2.99 GBP / month. Some of the benefits for example include allowing you to watch and record over-the-air broadcasts. You will obviously need a compatible tuner device and antenna in order to receive local TV channels. You’ll also be able to download your media to another device and watch offline with Mobile Sync. If you’re interested in taking a closer look at all that Plex Pass has to offer, it would certainly benefit you check out the dedicated webpage.

Where is Plex available?

At this time, Plex is available worldwide. But if you can’t get it in your area and want to stream content from the Plex app then you may be able to use a VPN to bypass any location blocks. Accessing content with Plex through a VPN is also beneficial, even if Plex is available in your area. As content varies depending on where you are located, changing your location to the US with a VPN generally unlocks new content.

NordVPN is my recommendation because it has strong unblocking capabilities. If you presently use IP Vanish as your VPN and want to unblock streaming services, I would consider switching to my recommended VPN. Despite IP Vanish being a safe and secure VPN, it does not have very good unblocking capabilities. Furthermore, you will struggle to use streaming services that are based outside of your location.


A VPN is required in order to bypass geographical restrictions on streaming services. By using a VPN you can choose your location and connect to the correct server to overcome streaming blocks. NordVPN especially has excellent unblocking capabilities and can unlock most streaming services, no matter where you are!

Do I Need to Sign Up?

No. As a matter of fact, no account, subscription or signup is required. In other words, everything is free! However, you do have the option to sign up for an account and that is totally free also! Signing up can get you additional benefits such as saving to your watchlist and locating and connecting with your media server.

Where Can I Watch Plex?

Plex is available to stream on most of your devices as an app as well as on any web browser. Simply search your app store for Plex then install it.

But if you can’t get Plex from your app store then you may be able to sideload it. In order to do so, your device must be capable of installing apps from unknown sources. Once your device is enabled for sideloading, you can then install the Plex app from my Downloads page.
