Is this essentially Plex Plus? Or whatever the $5/month service is called?

Plex just added a "grid" style Live TV schedule today. Looks much better than the prior system.

I wish a DRM recording solution existed. So far Plex, Emby, and HDHR cannot record DRM.

Seems to be, but with a different name... It's another option if you don't want to commit to a year or lifetime.

Is it true that plex collects meta data info on their collections from users devices?

Yeah, and $10 cheaper for those not looking to commit for a year.

This makes it sound like they have a live streaming service like sling or directvnow...but not the case, right? You still need a device... Right?

I looked it up.. best I can tell is that you still need a tv tuner plugged into a computer. I don't really see the point in this - guess it's just a plex front-end wrapper for what you can already do and it'll stream to other devices on your account.

Can't you do this for free with other software already?

I want to pull the trigger, but i am still a bit uncertain of exactly what this is... Is this a full plex pass or is this some new a la-carte offering?

How is this compared to DirecTV now? I like DirecTV now but of this is comparable and cheaper I'd go with this....also does it work on Apple TV?

edit...k it does work on Apple TV. I just had to look 😊

Same here. I pay for monthly plex pass but do t know if this is just the tv and dvr or if it gives the play from anywhere function like the pass does also.
