Plex for Kodi is now available for free; doesn’t require subscription
In December last year, Plex released a new Kodi add-on, which will allow Plex users to be able to experience and enjoy their content right from Kodi. However, in order to enjoy the service, one had to be a Plex Pass subscriber that costed $4.99 a month. Not anymore!!!
Plex has gone ahead and quietly updated its Kodi add-on removing the requirement for a Plex Pass and has made its web-based media server completely free.
“The Plex for Kodi add-on gives users the best of both worlds; the advanced customization of Kodi home theater and the beauty and simplicity of Plex for access on any device, anywhere, anytime,” the app’s website states.
“A dedicated device running Kodi and the Plex for Kodi add-on gives you a slick, configurable way to play your media in your home theatre. Kodi AV settings enable powerfully advanced knob twisting and lever sliding to fine tune playback for a customized viewing experience! Settings nirvana!” it further explains.
While you will be able to access your media collection hosted on a Plex Media Server through the Kodi app, some features still remain unavailable, if you don’t have a subscription. For instance, additional features such as audio fingerprinting, support for multiple user accounts, and parental controls are only accessible if you have a premium pass subscription.
You can download Plex for Kodi from the add-ons repository.
