Hi Roku pals! Plex, one of the most popular channels in the Roku Channel Store, is the premier platform to organize all your media libraries into a single, simplified experience for easy playback on your Roku device. And, once you’re running Plex, you can access your media on your mobile phone, tablet, and a bunch of other devices, no matter where you are. #Magic!
I would like to take a few minutes to introduce you to Plex DVR. Now in beta, Plex DVR enables Roku users to record high definition, over-the-air television broadcasts using an HDHomeRun tuner from our partner, SiliconDust. Our in-app DVR program guide supports channels in more than 70 countries, and we also support many other major networks around the world, like CBC, BBC, ITV, Telemundo, and Univision.
To use Plex DVR, you need to add a digital antenna, connect an HDHomeRun digital tuner, adjust your Plex DVR settings, and start pouring content into your media library. Manage the recordings and scheduling in the familiar Plex interface. It’s so easy! Who knew all this awesome TV was free over-the-air? Just to be clear, you manage your Plex DVR in the same place you manage all your Plex settings, in the Plex Web App found by logging in here: Plex.tv
All of your recordings will be integrated seamlessly with your existing media libraries, giving your DVR the full power of the Plex Roku channel! We are talking DVR recorded ‘The Bachelor’ snuggling up with your digital copies of ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians’ as if they were always meant to be together… #NoJudgement! Check out the video below to see how easy it is to set up Plex DVR.
