Plex on Philips Smart TV

Being someone who enjoys spending time on TV, Plex is one of the best choices to make. Unlike popular live TV streaming channels like YouTube TV and Hulu, Plex is a free streaming service for your TV. In addition, to live TV channels, Plex hosts a few titles that you can watch on-demand. By installing the Plex app on your Philips Smart TV, you can access all these features.

Plex is an ad-based streaming service for all devices that you can access. Popular news TV channels on Plex include Cooking Panda, Euronews, Kiddodle TV, ESTV, Nosey, MAV TV, Law & Crime, and Newsmax TV.
