Plex Adds Oscar-Winning Movies and Cult Classics from MGM to Growing AVOD Library
Consumer Availability Planned to Launch Before End of Year
Los Gatos, Calif.(11 Nov 2019)
Plex, the global streaming media company that brings your favorite content together in the highest-rated OTT video app, announced today that it has partnered with Metro Goldwyn Mayer (MGM) to bring dozens of Oscar-winning films and cult classics to its growing AVOD library, due to launch by the end of the year.
These MGM titles star iconic actors like Ryan Reynolds, Brad Pitt, Keanu Reeves, and include a wide variety of features, such as Rain Man, The Terminator, Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, Thelma & Louise, All Dogs Go to Heaven, and Leaving Las Vegas.
Today’s news of titles from MGM follow recent announcements of agreements with Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution, Lionsgate, and Legendary. Each agreement more firmly positions Plex as a one-stop media solution with support for free, ad-supported movies and shows, podcasts, web shows, news, music, and free over-the-air live TV.
“Creating a diverse content library that appeals to a broad range of interests is a high priority for us as we prepare to roll out our ad-supported video service to consumers later this year,” said Keith Valory, CEO of Plex. “We are continuing to ramp our content provider partnerships as we work to complete integrating AVOD into the Plex platform.”
Plex’s ad-supported TV and movies service will be available internationally, though MGM titles are U.S. only. More information about Plex and its upcoming AVOD offering can be found here https://www.plex.tv/ad/stream-free-tv-and-movies/.
