Plex isn't the first media company to deliver free films and shows supported by ads, but the company believes that it delivers a better offering than the competition, "While there are certainly other free streaming services out there, we're the first to offer a vast, free, diverse collection of content for a truly global audience. Starting today, Plex will deliver more content to more countries than any other free streaming service to date."
