In Its Ongoing Quest to Be A One-Stop Shop for ALL Your Streaming Favorites, Plex Now Offers Premium Movie Rentals

Plex is launching its U.S. movie rental offering with blockbusters including Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, and Wonka. This, in addition to 50k free movies + TV shows and Live TV channels

Los Angeles, CA, Feb. 07, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In its ongoing quest to tame the media chaos and become the one-stop shop for all things TV and movies, global streaming media company Plex now offers premium movie rentals in the United States. The most comprehensive entertainment platform available, Plex is the first-and-only streaming platform to offer rentals, free ad-supported movies, TV shows, and live TV together, combined with the ability to quickly find—and add to a universal watchlist—any title ever made, no matter which streaming service it lives on.

Plex has partnered with top studios to bring top movies and celebrity talent to the Plex platform, including everything from the award season sensations (Barbie, Wonka) to blockbusters with a bang (Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning, Expend4bles) and the latest indie darlings (Priscilla, Ferrari, Dream Scenario) to heroes of all sizes and species (Blue Beetle, PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie).

“With today’s availability of amazing titles like Barbie and The Color Purple, we are now offering consumers even more choices and movie selections all in one place,” said Keith Valory, Plex's CEO. “Our goal has always been to bring consumers a less chaotic and more fun experience when they sit down together to watch a movie or show. Let’s face it: people don’t know what to watch and, worse yet, where to watch it. We started last year by creating a single window into all streaming services so people can easily find what to watch, no matter where it is. With the addition of rentals, we are staying focused on our goal to be the first place people go to find any streaming movie and show, watch them, rate them, talk about them, and recommend them to friends and family.”

How To Rent a Movie on Plex

Browse Plex’s new movie library to find your rental to enjoy on almost all favorite platforms, including Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Android TV/Google TV, Roku, as well as smart TVs, including LG, Hisense, Samsung, Sony, VIZIO, plus Apple and Android phones and tablets, game consoles, and more.

Once you have rented a movie, you can play it on any supported Plex player app, and it will automatically appear in Continue Watching on your app home screen. If your smart TV or device is not supported, use the Plex app on your phone, tablet, or computer, and once you rent the movie, you can watch it anywhere you’ve installed Plex - even on devices that don’t allow direct rentals on their platform.

Rental prices start at $3.99, with new movies added to the rental library daily. You can also add the selection to your Plex Watchlist on Plex for when you’re ready to watch or when it becomes available (here or anywhere in the streaming universe.)
