How to Sing up for PLEX

What is Plex? 

A one-stop destination to stream movies, TV shows, and music, Plex is the most comprehensive entertainment platform available today. Available on almost any device, Plex is the first-and-only streaming platform to offer free ad-supported movies, shows, and live TV together with the ability to easily search—and add to your Watchlist—any title ever made, no matter which streaming service it lives on. Using the platform as their entertainment concierge, 17 million (and growing!) monthly active users count on Plex for new discoveries and recommendations from all their favorite streaming apps, personal media libraries, and beyond.

A Plex account is basically your personal identity for things associated with Plex. You use it to sign in to the website, the support forums, and Plex apps.

The Plex website will allow you to manage your Plex account. You can use the top menu bar on the website to sign in, sign up for a new account, or access account information if already signed in.
