Plex: get three months of Live TV & DVR functionality free (no Plex Pass required)

-5 Deal Score
906 Views
Live TV / DVR functionality is one of the biggest benefits of having a Plex Pass membership ($5 / mo, $75-150 / lifetime depending on if you get a sale price).

But from now until the end of June, this will be free to all Plex members, regardless of subscription status.

List of supported tuners here [plex.tv]

If you've been on the fence about getting Plex Pass, this is a great way to give it a trial run and see if you like it. I've been using the DVR functionality for a few years now to record Bills games in the fall, since I'm usually working on Sundays AND out of market, and this has been a great way to watch all of their games for free. The auto-remove commercial feature works pretty well too!

Live TV is free, yes. Not DVR. Still need Plex Pass for that.

Not seeing how to set this up if you don't have a premium account. Anyone got a link? Do you have to get a Plex Pass as only have free account now?

It works very well for certain things, but what I would like to see is the company being more responsive to the issues or needs that customers are bringing up on a consistent basis. Seems like some obvious things are just ignored (i.e. CarPlay integration) while they attempt to cram other things down our throats (movies and especially Tidal). They are trying to monetize it, but at the expense of potentially losing customers.

There was an update pushed last night to my server and in the release notes there were only two items, one of which referred to free live TV so you probably need the latest version of Plex Media Server to get the free live TV ability. Nothing was said about the DVR functionality being free so I cannot confirm or deny that.
