Plex now available for new Apple TV

If you're a big fan of using Plex for your home media-streaming needs, you'll be happy to know that the app is now available for the new Apple TV. Like its other apps, Plex on Apple TV allows you to stream your own content, such as movies, TV shows, music and images from a Plex media server set up on your home network.

This is the first time that Plex has officially graced the Apple TV platform. A third-party app did become available for the platform in 2010, but it required a jailbreak or workaround to install. This fresh release is the official deal, however, and Apple TV users finally have an easier way to stream their Plex content to their TV setup.

The app is universal, meaning if you own the app for iPhone or iPad, you own the tvOS versions as well. Note that once you've downloaded it on your iOS device, you can simply head to the "Purchases" section on the tvOS App Store to download it from there.

Update: If you're curious about reading more of what went into developing the app, the Plex team has given a great breakdown over on its blog that shows how this fantastic looking app came together.
