PlexSource: Windows Central

Plex is our favorite way to upload, manage, and stream all of your favorite content. It's a service that can transform a simple NAS (we've rounded up the best NAS for Plex) enclosure into a powerful media center. The service itself is free, but to make the most out of what's available, you need to pay for Plex Pass, which can be carried out monthly, annually, or for a single lifetime fee.

This lifetime membership is on sale right now for Black Friday at just $89. You get numerous features with Plex Pass, including hardware transcode support (which allows you to better convert media that isn't supported by a recipient device), a music player, and access to movies and shows on your smartphones, DVR, and more.

The lifetime membership is usually $120 (with the monthly and annual fees $4.99 and $39.99, respectively). For Black Friday, you can use the code LIFETIMEOFCOMFORT for a 25% discount, bringing the cost down to $89. If you want to save even more, switch the country to Brazil while making payment, and you should see the price drop to approximately $67 with BRL375.
