The new channels — LiveNow from Fox, Fox Weather, Fox Soul and TMZ TV — will now be distributed to more than 16 million monthly active Plex users across a wide variety of devices where Plex is supported, including Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Android TV (Google TV) and Apple TV.
“We’re thrilled to expand our [free, ad-supported television] channel line-up with the addition of Fox Weather, Fox Soul, LiveNow from Fox and TMZ,” Shawn Eldridge, the vice president of strategic alliances and content at Plex, said in a statement. “This partnership enhances our content offering and strengthens our commitment to providing a diverse range of free, high-quality entertainment for our viewers. The addition of these channels further expands our growing line-up, making Plex the go-to destination for all your entertainment needs.”
