It also provides on-demand programming from multiple TV network websites. In the past year, Plex added a news app that aggregates content from multiple sources and d has developed a DVR system using a number of OTA DVR’s.
The HDHomeRun has a free Plex channel that will allow anyone who has a Plex server to access the service without the need to leave the Plex interface. In order to use the service users must, of course, own a compatible HDHomeRun device.
