What is Plex TV, and how can I watch it?

Plex has been around for quite some time, but this year it’s had quite a face lift.

The idea of Plex was always to provide a server system for users to store their own media content—locally—then stream it to their devices via an app created for almost all devices and platforms, wherever they were in the world.

The interface is streets ahead of similar services, and so are the number of features you can take advantage of. In May 2020, Plex launched a streaming service, loaded with content from some pretty big names.

With over 80 channels to choose from, there’s always something on. The selection of on-demand movies and TV shows are currently provided by partners Warner Bros, MGM, Lionsgate, Legendary, Magnolia Pictures, and Crackle, but expect that list to keep growing as time goes on. The line-up at launch is impressive, and with a service that’s only set to grow, life is looking good at Plex.

What’s better still, all of Plex TV’s supplied content is free, paid for in typical ad-supported fashion offered by similar streaming services.

It’s not just TV, though, on the Plex list of media to conquer. The existing server platform has long managed video, photos, podcasts, music and more into its user’s personal libraries, and now it plans the same for their own streaming media service.

Look out for more on-demand TV shows and movies, as well as podcasts, music, news, web shows and a whole lot more. Plex is undoubtedly doing things a little differently to its competitors, offering users many more facilities than selling some straightforward viewing.

How can I watch Plex TV with StreamLocator?

When you set up Plex, much of the content has geographical restrictions. For those services that require a workaround for region-specific viewing, StreamLocator provides the location address you need to unblock their restricted content.

No complicated settings or software installation required

The beauty of StreamLocator is that there’s no new software to download and install. There aren’t any fiddly DNS settings to adjust or replace or new profiles to install. One of the drawbacks of choosing a VPN provider to work around geolocation blocks is that every device you use needs their software or app to create your virtual location.

StreamLocator works with every device that connects to the Internet through your WiFi. So, with Plex apps available on a long list of devices, you don’t need to worry about how they’ll bypass those regional restrictions.

Plex works with Android and iOS devices, Smart TVs, Fire TV, Android TV, Apple TV, Chromecast, Roku and more. So does StreamLocator.

Our smart hub plugs into your WiFi router. It works in the background without you realising it’s there, making life easier every step of the way.

Your network speeds aren’t affected, and you can connect as many devices at the same time as you need. Every one of them is redirected to a different service in a different location if that’s what you need. How smart is that?

How to watch Plex TV from outside the USA

The content delivered by Plex TV to countries outside the US is restricted to less attractive titles. To access the shows you want, you need to appear to their servers as though you’re in America.

VPN and Smart DNS services provide workarounds to navigate the geolocation restrictions. StreamLocator provides the same types of service—only it does it better.

How to register for Plex TV from outside the USA

With StreamLocator in place and Plex TV working with a US location, setting up your account is simple. Make sure to use an American street address wherever prompted, and a very different catalogue of shows and movies will appear on your homepage.

Do you need a VPN or DNS to watch Plex TV from outside the USA?

You can watch a lot of Plex’s content without a location workaround, but the content you’ll have access to is limited. Using VPN or Smart DNS will open up those blocks, allowing you to watch everything they’ve got in their complete catalogue.

There are a few limitations to each of the geolocation workarounds. Some of the more popular VPN systems are starting to appear on blacklists, with their collection of IP addresses blocked by some of the more savvy providers.

StreamLocator works in a different way to almost all of the existing systems on the market. Our smart hub communicates with each of the streaming services servers on connection. It finds out which is the best method to get around their regional blockades and picks the correct technology to provide you with seamless access.

How to unblock Plex TV

One of the other advantages of choosing StreamLocator is that using our system is so simple.

Plug in our smart hub (we’ll send you one when you sign up for a subscription); it works in any open port of your WiFi router. Activate your account, and once you’ve sorted that, you’ll be able to see a new network in your WiFi list.

From now on, whichever device you want to use, simply select the STREAMLOCATOR option and let our hub take care of everything else.

Does StreamLocator allow me to watch Plex TV for free?

The TV and movie content provided by Plex TV is ad-supported and designed to be free for all viewers. Connecting through StreamLocator won’t change that. Your content will be free wherever you are. Only now, you’ll have access to more shows, more movies, and more channels.
