The lineup of films available for free has several well-known titles. People can watch The Terminator, Frequency, Rain Man, and many other films through Plex.

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."
To watch free content through Plex, you need to visit Plex's website and sign up for an account.
