Roku has been a widely growing name among streaming services recently. As it gains popularity, multiple new channels or apps start to join Roku. One of the apps is Plex TV. Plex for Roku is a brilliant initiative.
If you have used Roku, you must have been impressed by its service and ease of use. The company keeps on the lookout for various creative ideas every now and then. Here in this article, we talk about one of its creative initiatives, Plex.
How good is Roku and what is Plex?
Roku has been established as a company since 2002. It is a media streaming company and released its first product in 2008. It was a hardware digital media player which only featured Netflix service. Roku has grown a lot since then, adding Hulu, Disney+, ESPN and Spotify, etc. Based on its popularity one can say Roku is very good in terms of hardware-based media playing devices.
Plex, on the other hand, is short for Plex TV which is a freemium collection of all the media you would prefer to watch. It hosts a wide range of channels (150+) and boasts of many more features. Furthermore, Plex can also add your own personal media, or media from any of the websites you want as long as you bookmark it using Plex’s Bookmark method.
