Plex, the free streaming app available in Italy since December of last year, it renews and expands its offer: for some days now they have been available 80 TV channels visible streaming for free. And the offer is not only valid for the United States, but the eighty channels have been released in over 200 countries where the app is available. This is a very wide and varied offer: it ranges from monothematic channels dedicated to cinema, to channels for sports or for children.
A very important choice that made by Plex, which in this way tries to strengthen its presence in the streaming sector, where it has so far been affected by the presence of colossi come Netflix, Amazon Prime Video e Disney+. The operation of Plex is very interesting, but so far it does not seem to have caught on very much in Italy: users can see the contents present for free, in exchange for seeing advertisements. A bit the system used by normal TV, but which is also struggling to take root in the online streaming sector. And the same Plex system wants to use it for the watching eighty TV channels: users will have to get used to seeing advertising.
What are the new eighty TV channels on Plex
Plex has expanded its offer by opening also to online streaming of individual TV channels, which however cannot be seen on demand. A wide and varied offer capable of seriously affecting traditional TV, especially in countries where digital terrestrial television is not free. Plex Live TV is based on the classic advertising system in exchange for a free viewing: during the viewing, users will be forced to see them to continue using the service.
Eighty TV channels is a wide offer that can truly satisfy everyone. Among the channels that will be available there is that of Reuters to stay informed with the latest news from all over the world. Toon Goggles, TV channel dedicated to children with cartoons and ad hoc programs, Sports Network (no need for an explanation, the name is clear enough) and IGN TV, the channel dedicated to e-sports.
This is only a very small part of what it is presente su Plex Live TV: there are monothematic channels on cinema or on anime, but also on the economy, on animals and on the inevitable food. There most TV channels are in English, but there are also some in Spanish, Chinese and South Korean. To get a complete idea of the TV offer, Plex has created an ad hoc page on its website.
