The move helps transition Plex from targeting an audience with large local media collections to targeting the ever growing number of cord-cutters.

‘Media center specialist Plex added another piece to the puzzle Thursday to become the go-to solution for cord cutters: Plex users who own a compatible TV tuner are now able stream live broadcast programming to their Plex apps on mobile and TV-connected devices. The company also extended support for its DVR feature to record over-the-air broadcast TV programming from networks like ABC, NBC, and CBS.
Live TV support initially launched for iOS mobile devices and Android TV streaming devices Thursday, with Plex chief product officer Scott Olechowski telling Variety that support will be extended to Android mobile devices and Apple TV in the next three to four weeks.’
