For those of you out there that use Plex for streaming your own content on other devices, like Chromecast. You'll probably want to read this. Plex has stated today that they will be increasing the cost of the Plex Pass. This goes for the monthly, annual and lifetime passes. Here's how it's going to look: Monthly Plex Pass subscriptions will increase from $3.99 to $4.99 per month. Annual Plex Pass subscriptions will increase from $29.99 to $39.99 per year. Lifetime Plex Passes will increase from $74.99 to $149.99.
Additionally, Plex stated this in their blog post this morning: "Again, please note that these new rates will only affect new subscriptions moving forward. Of course, as we've mentioned in the past, we may need to charge separately for certain types of premium content, and we may need to adjust Plex Pass prices again in the future."
So at least it'll only affect new Plex subscriptions and not current users who may have already paid for their lifetime Plex Pass. It's understandable to raise prices, so let's see what other kind of features and services Plex adds into their app and service in the very near future as that would be a good reason to go up on prices, at least in my opinion.
Starting September 29th, these new rates go into affect. So that if you are thinking about upgrading to the Lifetime Plex Pass, now is the time to do so, as you'll save about $75 on that. Which is a pretty big deal, I think. Plex has always been around and has done some great things. It's also one of our favorite Chromecast apps out there. So if you use Plex why not support the company. How many of you are thinking about upgrading to their Lifetime Plex Pass before the price jumps? Let us know in the comments below.
