Plex Free Live TV on Apple TV and iOS
There is a wide range of content available, for both children and adults. There are Reuters TV and Yahoo Finance channels for news and business information, and a host of kids content like the Toon Goggles and KidsFlix channels. Some channels, such as the Deal or No Deal Channel, are dedicated to individual shows. There are music channels and 24-7 movie streams too.
The service is attempting to relive the ‘glory days’ of live TV. It is largely financed by “limited” commercial breaks, but Plex is also experimenting with on-air promotions. Updates are rolling out on Apple TV and iOS devices, and smart TVs will get access to the service in the near future.
