Apple CEO Tim Cook proclaimed at the company’s event a few days back that the future of TV is apps and it’s no surprise that the new Apple TV heavily focuses on apps and games, it’s the first Apple TV that comes with an App Store. Naturally the company wants more and more developers to create good applications for the Apple TV and many will certainly appreciate the fact that Plex is finally coming to Apple TV.
Plex is a popular service that people use for organizing and streaming their personal movie and music collection, it’s already available for a wide variety of platforms that range from mobile devices to gaming consoles, and finally it’s going to be released for the Apple TV.
Scott Olechowski, the co-founder of Plex, confirmed to IT World that Plex is coming to Apple TV. “It’s been a long requested platform and we’re excited to work on it. We want it, our users want it…and we’re anxiously awaiting the tvOS developer beta info, so we can finally dig in,” he said.
Olechowski didn’t give a confirmed release timeframe for the app though, the new Apple TV itself isn’t going to start shipping till late next month, but even after the new set-top box arrives people may have to wait for a while before Plex is released. Nevertheless at least now they can rest in peace knowing that sooner or later Plex will be available for Apple TV.
