Plex reaches Roku media boxes in channel form

updated 10:55 pm EDT, Tue March 27, 2012

Plex branches out to Roku for first time

Plex on Tuesday said its custom media interface had reached Roku's Internet Players for the first time. The new version shows as a Roku Channel Store option and brings a new, streamlined version of the interface within its self-contained section. All subscribed channels are available, as well as access to audio, photo, and video from a local Plex Media Server.

Users can sign into a myPlex account to get to their queues and servers from another device. The Roku version tries to minimize the need to transcode and itself is a fix of features from earlier versions.

Downloading the Plex app is free outside of the Roku box itself, although these start at as little as $50 for a basic, 720p maximum Roku LT and top out at $100 for a Roku 2 XS with 1080p.
