Since its acquisition of Watchup, Plex has grown its news sources to 190, which includes international news from outlets like CNN, CBS, Financial Times, and Euronews, as well as local news for 80 percent of markets in the U.S.
For now, Plex News is limited to Android TV, Nvidea Shield, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Roku, Android Mobile, and iOS devices, though Plex promises it will become available for other platforms in the near future.
From there, users select which news outlets they wish to access.
For those who do use Plex media center, Plex News will sit right alongside TV shows, movies, photos, and videos.
Plex News launched Tuesday and will first be available to Plex Pass users, with full deployment slated to be completed within 48 hours.
