It was at the end of December when the arrival of free streaming content on Plex was announced, a bold move that, however, offered an irregular experience due to its limitations: beyond the addition of the advertising cuts with which to finance the service, a Extensive catalog but of mediocre quality and that everything was in English, made the invention less interesting.
The news now would be that the offer of free streaming on Plex is expanded and reinforced with Crackle TV movies and series, a veteran free service from Sony Pictures that is also financed by advertising and in whose catalog you can find much more popular content than those that end up falling on Plex, but … it is only available to users in the United States.
Thus, the bottom line is that the proposal for free streaming on Plex is working, or at least that seems to be due to the incorporation of Sony Pictures. Until now, the service only had the support of Warner Bros. and the content of major studios such as Metro Goldwyn Mayer, Lionsgate and Legendary, which said that sounds like a hit; Nothing could be further from the truth.
In fact, the free streaming offer on Plex was nurtured until now, except for the appearance of some punctual classics, of the grossest filler, while the participation of Crackle TV has brought more modern things, including some of which you can see in the image above these lines. The pity is that they can only be reproduced from the United States.
The interesting thing is that the free streaming initiative on Plex collects your second weight partner in just six months. Now all that remains is for them to start thinking internationally, to offer dubbed content or at least with subtitles, and to continue adding more worthwhile movies and series.
On the other hand, if you took a look at the beginning and the free streaming offer on Plex did not convince you, it happens to you once in a while, because they renew the material often and put very curious things for the geek fond of productions of series B of genres such as horror, science fiction, etc. If you get along with English, of course.
