Plex app for Xbox One coming tomorrow, comment and win a lifetime premium membership

Ready for the official Plex app on Xbox One? Good, because it comes out tomorrow. Those with a Plex Pass premium subscription will be able to download and use Plex on their Xbox One. Not up to date with Plex? It's a super snazzy set of software that allows you to stream your photos, music and videos from your home computer to nearly any screen.

To celebrate the launch of Plex on Xbox One, Plex has given us a free lifetime Plex Pass premium subscription to give to one of you. Read on to enter.

Plex on Xbox One

Plex works when you install the Plex Media Server at home. You can install it on your PC, Mac or Linux computer or nearly any NAS (network-attached storage) device. Once installed, let the Plex Media Server know where you store your photos, music and video. From there Plex makes your content available on Windows Phone, Windows, Xbox One and nearly any other device through official apps for Plex.

The Xbox One app launching tomorrow will just stream video content. For the initial release, the team at Plex wanted to give the Xbox One app a killer video experience. Don't worry though, a future release will introduce photo and music support. Plex is debuting a new interface on the Xbox One app to make your video media shine. Those on with the Xbox 360 can also look forward to a Plex app coming out in the next few weeks.

Look forward to the following features with Plex on Xbox One:

Beautiful New Design

Plex on Xbox One

  • Your Plex Media Server makes your media library look beautiful by automatically collecting and displaying artwork, content ratings, plot summaries, and more for your media. Now, Plex for Xbox provides a new experience in your living room with a bold presentation that feels right at home on Xbox.

Media Discovery

Plex on Xbox One

  • Plex for Xbox introduces new media discovery capabilities to the Plex experience. Plex users will now be presented with customized categories of content based on viewing habits. These customized categories will make it easy to discover new content, enjoy similar content (for example, based on genre or cast) and rediscover content that has not been viewed for a while.
  • Plex for Xbox also includes fan favorites like On Deck, which keeps track of shows you're currently watching, allows you to easily continue watching where you left off, and automatically suggests next episodes.

Voice & Gesture Control

Plex on Xbox One

  • Plex for Xbox, combined with Kinect, supports voice and gesture control, allowing users to navigate their Plex media library, view content, and control playback without picking up an Xbox controller.

  • Because I never win anything and winning this would be cool. And I will also save baby dolphins with this.
  • Hi
  • Bye
  • Hello
  • I was perPLEXed!  I didn't know Plex existed until now.  :)
  • Can't wait. This is amazing., going to need to upgrade my home server.
  • This is going to be amazing!
  • Yipee!
  • Tittie Sprinkles! Yay!!!
  • You stole my comment.
  • I need plex to watch all my shows on all my freaking devices >
  • Spearheading (I just submitted on word slow)
  • I didn't know what Plex was before I read this.  Now I really want Plex. Come to me, my child. 
  • Looks great! I wonder what keeps XBMC (now Kodie) from being released on the app stores too?
  • Woohooo, Plex is a must for my everyday, I'd love to have this.
  • Can I ? Oh I never win anyway....
  • What is there to say, other than; swwwwweeeeeeeeettttttttttttt!!!!!!!!!
  • Aww yeah
  • Lots of great apps coming to the platform. Plex would be great.
  • Deal!
  • I can't wait, I love PLEX!
  • A killer video experience is a start, and I'm really excited about the prospect of a killer music streaming option in the future!
  • This would be awesome.
  • Because plex is as awesome as reality that we live in
  • Don't pick me, I don't have an Xbox One!
    (note: Pick me)
  • lol
  • Hello I'd love to win! Love FROZEN
  • Love it on my Roku. I've been holding out grabbing an Xbox One(till holiday). This might finally break my will power, still haven't purchased Surface Pro 3 either!
  • I promise to use this power only for good.
  • I use plex on all my devices and love it. The media player on xbox one is very clunky. Hope plex is much better.
  • Cool, wish it was on xbox 360 instead of just DLNA
  • You did read The whole article? It says it will be an app for 360 as well in a few weeks time :D
  • Yeah, I didn't read it, just the title and making my comment :)
  • Always a good choice.
  • I need a Plex lifetime membership so my wife doesn't kill me over how difficult it is to use our TV. Plex will make watching our recorded TV from Windows Media Center and PlayLater easy on our Xbox One. I like being alive, which is why I NEED a Plex Lifetime membership.
  • Hummm... Plex has come a long ways... Very nice!!!
  • Serious side of me: I love PLEX! Makes my videos so easy to view on any device since I'm lazy to do it for myself.
    Silly side of me: I like turtles.
  • Great news..
  • Najs
  • I wouldn't complain if I got a lifetime membership.
  • I have plex server on my desktop, plex app on my WP and my laptops and surface, a third-party plex app on my tv but it's kind of slow even though it works. Plex on xbox one would just be killer. It's kind of an upgrade for the whole living room.
  • I'd give this a go!
  • I need this! I use plex with my NAS and have been lost trying to view my films on Xbox One until hearing this, lugging a pc downstairs doesn't cut it so NAS to USB had to do. Thankyou Plex!
  • This is awesome.
  • Well this would be really swell!!!
  • Isn't this already possible just using the windows operating system?
  • Depends what you mean by "this". You can stream video files from your windows PC but PLEX is awesome because it pulls in all the meta tags, beautiful movie art and keeps track of what you've watched and unwatched. If you haven't tried it before then defintiely try it out, it's free for PC and Mac and should give you an idea of how it works. It's seriously powerful and every app they release is just beautiful.
  • Much excitement =D
  • Such features, wow!
  • A lifetime membership would definitely get me to use PLEX :)
  • Sweetttttt
  • Without it I'm lost. Please let me win. I love my movies.
  • plex is a super awesome interface, and having a subscription would make my life so much easier. it'd definitely put a huge smile on my gf's face as well =)
  • I will wait for the option where I can buy the app. Unless I win the lifetime premium account from you guys.
  • Might have to swith from XBMC to this now!
  • Love Plex! I use it to stream HD videos from my PC to my Roku and it works great. Now I just need to get an Xbox One!
  • Yeah, it doesn't make sense that the XBox apps require a subscription when other devices get the app for free or have a one time fee for the app itself. I'd love to have it but I'm not paying $40 a year to have Plex on XBox.
  • As I'm setting up my home Plex network, getting all of my movies, pictures, and music added, Plex Pass would just be a great addition :)
  • Yes!
  • AweXome!
  • I need the plex lifetime membership! I just got off the phone with Time Warner Cable and just cut the cord and now just run Hulu plus and amazon prime streaming, but because there is no amazon streaming app for windows phone I need another source for my old school tv and newer movies. Plex would solve that last missing piece for my cord cutting!!
  • I want it. :D
  • Sweet. May I have a green card too please so I can enjoy my lifetime premium membership?
  • Yay.  DLNA, MKV support, and now Plex!  The Xbox one is almost complete for me. Now they just need some more Kinect titles for my 4-year old, and some backwards compatibility with the 360 library wouldn't hurt. :)  
  • Might mean I can retire my HTPC from the living room (didn't think I would ever contemplate that before when using just XBMC (or Kodi). The only thing missing from Plex for me is having my Adalight unit controlled by it (like boblight for XBMC), but think that might be a step to far for the Xbox One. Just wish I'd bought the premium pass before the price rise, unless I'm the lucky winner!!!
  • You could use something like Lightberry to solve your problem. I have ambient lighting using HDMI as the video source and Raspberry Pi. So all my sources from my AV Receiver are ambient light compatible (boblight/hyperion).
  • Who cares? Where's HBOGO?
  • Plex everywhere that's good.
  • Lol.. I want the pass for my future Xbox..
  • Well that explains the recent doubling in price of the lifetime membership... Wish I knew it was needed when it was still $75 a week and a half ago...
  • I agree, it's very expensive for an app to just watch media on your home network.
  • found your winner ;)
  • Plex + Lifetime, sounds like Christmas! :-))))
  • As one who has also never heard of Plex, I'd be one of the perfect winners, plus I like the baby dolphin saving use.....it's a good use.
  • I like turtles
  • I need to win because I really don't know what it is or does. I'll use it for science.
  • PLEX is my favourite media server. I am using its client in pc, mobile and smart tv. I am happy to welcome it to Xbox one.
    With this Xbox becomes a complete home entertainment system.
  • I've never really given Plex a try. I signed up but kind of don't get it. I don't like the idea of keeping my computer on at almost all times to stream my media.
  • Install it on a NAS device or a second computer. I don't see the issue, a computer is not a very power hungry device, if that is the issue. For sake of the hardware, it is better for a computer to stay on, have relatively constant temperature and power on the circuits. For Plex, no solution I have tried does the job as good as Plex. I have backed up all my DVD/BluRays to the plex library and scraping extra content and metadata automatically, presenting it to all my devices in a clean and uncomplicated way.
  • I NEED this to keep me inside this winter. Everyone knows the Canadian winter pass time is clubbing baby seals. Do you love baby seals? Of course you do. So I need this so I don't club baby seals.
  • lolz
  • Love Plex, have it on most of my devices!
  • To have another good reason to do my homework later ^^
  • I need a Plex Pass to convince my wife that it was worth all of the time and effort of us ripping our 500+ size DVD collection!
  • I've never used Plex before but since I own a serveral Windows Phones, Windows PCs (desktop, tablet, laptop) and a Xbox One, it would be nice to try out their service for life.
  • Need this to cloud sync with my 1 TB onedrive :)
  • I need it because I'm a sad individual that has been severely hindered in my wallowing by not being able to watch my Plex library through my Xbox One
  • I NEED this because I'm highly intrigued by this now.
    I haven't checked out or used Plex before, but FREE Plex? I'll use it just because!
    Then once I fall in love because I got it for FREE, I'll share it with all my friends (whom I'll make jealous because they won't get it for FREE like me). They'll buy it, of course, because they want to be COOL like me, because I got it for FREE.
    The trend will continue as all my friends share with their friends, then their grandmas, then their uncles, then their friends' grandmas' uncles!
    It will spread, and spread and spread: Until Plex has enough subscribers to form its own nation, which will then rebel against the tyranny of outrageous restrictions on streaming the media content that WE paid for.
    The rebellion will be a success, and a new world order will begin, with an era of media streaming freedom, and it will be GLORIOUS.
    ALL of this because you made me COOL by giving me Plex for a lifetime for FREE.
    A new golden age in media streaming freedom, all for the LOW-LOW cost of giving ME this HONOR for FREE.
    I think my CAPS has made my point clear. The fate of the future of MANKIND and MEDIA rests in YOUR hands with THIS decision. Choose WISELY.
  • Lmao, nice plan you got there :P.
  • Nice....
  • I am from Austria... we never have the chance to win anything like that....!
  • I need one too
  • I need it to be happy!
  • Who wouldnt want this? :)
  • A must have Xbox one app.
  • Finally, no more trying to navigate the web app with a controller. And they beat MS to the dlna pulling
  • Can't wait to use it!  That's awesome!
  • I need Plex lifetime pass because I believe i will live forever and make the most use of it. This will be added to my other lifetime passes of Taco Bell, Minigolf on wednesdays, and Student debt.
  • pick me so I can put it on the pro's side of my "pros and cons of why we should buy an xbox one" list to give to my misses
  • TL;DR Does anyone know if this still requiers a PC to be on or can the XBone be the server?
  • Requires a PC.
  • Doesn't look like it, could run off NAS though
  • I need plex because my body runs on watching movies/shows, and if I don't watch enough, on a plethora of devices, I'll shrivel up and die. You don't want me to die... Do you?
  • Yeahhh! Finally!!! :D
  • Would like to win, simply don't have the money to pay for a membership, hard enough as it is living paycheck to paycheck
  • Eh, it's worth a shot.
  • Plex has really improved over time.  Great media hub.
  • Call it love, call it sin, it's the state I'm in. Feels like in heaven...
  • My dreams have come true!
  • Why so many contest
  • Because we love you
  • My plex lifetime membership is the flapping butterfly wing that somehow eventually leads to the last minute demise of the race of bone crushing war demons who will invade the earth thirty years from now.
  • I thought plex was all that I needed to push me to get another xbox one. Now that I know there is more than a one time app purchase, I am not so sure. I already own the Roku version and an additional Roku is a lot cheaper than just the Plex Premium portion of my planned purchase.
  • According to The Verge, the app will be available to other users for a one-time fee at a later date.
  • P

  • YAY! Plex! wooHoo!
  • Because briny able to access all my movies on all my devices wherever I am would mean tons to my kids who get very bored on trips!
  • Awesome app!! Lifetime membership here I come! =P
  • I have so many videos and photos of family that my OneDrive is filling up fast. I would rather have everything on my PC and stream from there. Great app can't wait for Xbox integration.
  • Sweet. Been using it for ages on my Linux Server, Surface Pro and WP!
  • Awesome a great reason to stay on Microsoft ecosystem..new xbox just received today...
  • Don't know what Plex is but a lifetime premium pass would be nice!!!
  • Because everyone gets netflix and I want to be different.
  • Also, I do realise that it doesn't offer online movies. But that's basically what I'll use it for. Told ya, want to be different :p
  • I can't wait. I want it all and u want it now.
  • Amazing, I can't wait to get
  • Sounds like I won't have to wait for XBMC :)
  • I need Plex so that I can continue my movie one liner acquisition...
    "You can't handle the truth!"
    "There is no spoon."
    "Inconceivable!"
    "You had me at "hello"."
    "I'll have what she's having."
    "Oi! Ten thousand years will give you such a crick in the neck"
    "Game over man! Game over!"
  • $150.. That's 5 boxes of diaper for the baby and entertainment for daddy. Win win
  • IN for some plex!
  • I wanna win (:
  • Woohoo! Now I won't get my name written in the death note..
  • Plex sounds awesome!
  • Beautiful UI. It like everyone uses the old Zune Marketplace desktop app as a reference when they are designing apps nowadays.
  • Let me win.... Please please please
  • Yes, may I have another!!!
  • I want it. I need it.
  • I spent a worrying amount of time organising my film collection in the past.  Downloading all the right images sizing them correctly.  I was justifiably proud of my work!  Then I discovered Plex, it did all this (and more!)  "Wonderful" I thought.  Then, I look at how all this hard work converts onto my TV's DLNA...  half text, squashed images and slow to load.  It makes my soul hurt!  Not only that, it turns out I don't actually keep track of my remote control (normally the dog has kindly 'hidden' it), instead replacing it with "XBox Watch BBC1".  After a hard days work I just want to come home, flop on the sofa and say "XBox Plex", see all my movie's data in all its glory and know my life is just that tiny bit better than it was yesterday while watching a great film.
  • I got too many pictures to share ...
  • Nice! I've been hoping for this!
  • Awesome! Official plex on a console is a great idea!
  • Man!  I have been waiting SO long for the Xbox to be able to play all of my media.  Looks like it is coming with the October update, but the PLEX app looks BEAUTIFUL!  Please pick me!
  • Just because of Microsoft is Scrooge and doesn't offer free music streaming, I'll need this as my Christmas gift.... Hahaha!
  • I 'NEED' plex due to the fact that plex looks like a amazing price of software, and the life time membership is being given away by the greatest source of Microsoft news. WPC (Soon to be what ever name wins) you guys are amazing, giving away so much (Phones, programs, apps, etc) for free... Not many people do that, especially not full blown phones. You guys cover the best operating system imaginable. Every day I come to WPC to check the news, I get excited when I see my love tile show a number (Showing there is a new article), your dedication is enough to satisfy me, but winning something from you? I literally would throw a party and invite you guys.
    Good luck to everyone, wish you all the best of luck :)
  • It'd be used as a Netflix replacement for my fathers birthday! Should save myself money in the long run as I have plenty of stored movies on my PC etc.
  • I've been waiting for this since announced would be great to have premium
  • that app seems awesome!.. hope i can win to try it out!
  • Good luck to you, Plex Pass Premium. Maybe you'll win a spot on my Xbox with this contest....
  • Only starting to use the awesomeness of Plex, bought it for WP and win8 (before they became a universal). I would love to not have to pay for Plex any more.. Because I'm cheap :)
  • I need a lifetime membership because it would give me a reason to give up my beloved but non-Xbox ready XBMC that runs on an old AppleTV. Don't make me keep supporting Apple!
  • I need it because all humans are naturally greedy on the inside, "One can never have enough things" so I want it
  • This is the only way for me to stream my Seinfeld DVDs to my TV, so clearly I need this.
  • I'd love the lifetime subscription!  WPCentral RAWKS!
  • Honestly...where is HBO GO? Xbox, Windows, windows phone?? Has been on ps4 for months. Wpc any update?
  • Would love to have this......so I'm begging from the bottom of my gallbladder which I no longer have, hook a brother up. And if that isn't enough, I'll beg with the sincerity of a politician. And if that isn't enough, I'll beg like a stinking kid at Walmart. And if that isn't enough.........
  • Dude, a lifetime membership to plex will UPGRADE MY SEX LIFE..... literally. Please, for the sake of my meat and two veg, hook me up!
  • I like free!
  • Sounds like a great alternative to TiVo for some videos.
  • COMMENTING!
  • First Plex on my PC, then Windows Phone, now Xbox One!!!! I'm sure it would be a delight to use this app on Xbox, the cost of the app I'm bout looking forward too though, so Lifetime membership would make Life a lot easier!!!!
  • I can't wait to get my hands on this app
  • I need one because then at least truthfully I can say I finally have a life (ill just leave out the "time subscription" part)
  • Don't pick me. I don't have an Xbox One. (still have a pre 360 and the controllers are dying. Send me your old Xbox controllers instead so I can play NCAA football 2007)
  • I should win a lifetime pass because when I get it I'm never gonna give it up.
    Never gonna let it go.
    Never gonna run around and desert it.
    Never gonna make it cry.
    Never gonna say goodbye.
    Never gonna tell a lie and hurt it.
  • Thanks for that. I love it when that song is stuck in my head
  • I need Plex on the Xbox One so i have one less reason to switch inputs to the Roku 3.
  • Good to see poked continued support
  • I love Plex using it on NOWTV and its great, but really a subscription on top of Xbox's as well.. I wont be paying it, so I hope i win the free one !
  • Absolutely awesome. Can't wait for this. Plex is simply unrivaled. Wouldn't mind a lifetime subscription either ...
  • It's sound amazing on every single devices.
  • Finally.  If only the Xbox One had Media Center Extender Support.  It would be the perfect box that and Plex.
  • Awesome! I have been using the Plex DLNA support on my xbox one. It is ok, but cant wait for the real deal!
  • I need a Plex pass, because it is awesome to play the files on my server with the KINECT.
  • Where does everyone get the terabytes of media for Plex? I'm sure the answer is "ripping DVD/BluRays I already own" but I somehow doubt it. Is piracy what fuels Plex? Serious question.
  • My life is now complete.
  • Wondering if it will use native xbone video processing or convert on the server...
  • Plex is the new xbmc I guess.:) Good on them. And I'm thinking about their development speed.
  • I bet if they make it a one off payment of say £3.99/$3.99 they will get more takers..
  • This is another great reason to buy Xbox One!
  • how i wish i had an xbox one.
  • I could do with the membership, its my main streaming media for my home network setup.
  • gimmee!!!!   Please? :)
  • Absolutely fantastic news =D now I'm just waiting for my tv tuner to come, which will be a matter of days =D and all that's left is BBC iPlayer!
  • You should choose me because before this article I didn't know anything about Plex, and now I realized that I need it. You have to take responsibility for this!
  • Plex, for me, for free? Please!!!!!
  • I want win because I'm FRENCH, and eveyone like French ! :p
  • I have been looking forward to this for months... the fact that it requires a Plex pass totally kills it.  I understand they need to make money, but why can't they just charge $5 like they do for their other apps?  Sadly, I won't be using it. [Edit] I just read from The Verge:
    It's free to subscribers at launch, and will be made available for a one-time fee to everyone else at a later date.
  • I've been waiting for this for quite some time. Can't wait to get it up and running. 
  • Oh snap!
  • I need it because I use it every day, and I never win anything.
  • Premium account please! Haha
  • Awesome. Cannot wait. Tired of Apple getting all of the good stuff.
  • I love you Plex...pleaaa.
  • I have 4TB of media on my server at home.  2.5TB of that is Disney, Dreamworks, Sesame Street and Little House on the Prairie meant to entertain my 2 children, 1 baby on the way and my 54-year-old aunt who suffers from Downs Syndrome.  I need a lifetime PlexPass to help insure that these people are watching maturity-appropriate content in my house. And please Plex people, please create a user-friendly method of allowing an administrator restrict what certain users, in a multi-user environment such that the PlexPass supports, can view.  I know that's not what Plex was built for, but it's mature enough to start building important features like this.
  • If you want parental controls you should check Media Browser (www.mediabrowser.tv).
    You can easily give each user a rating they are allowed to watch and then they can only see the content they're allowed to.
  • Thanks!  I'll look into it.
  • If you need any help with mediabrowser, just ask around in the forums.
    The community is very friendly and always willing to help.
  • For view on big screen and friends also streams my videos.
  • Fantastic!
  • I need to be a plex premium member for life so that I don't have to pay for it every month.
  • I love comments!
  • PLEX me!
  • Because I guess its time to think about life after Media Center...
  • Pay a premium subscription to watch your pirated content.
  • Most of the content I have is not pirated. There are a good deal of us that do own legal content. Either way, the ease of managing your media across a number of devices. It's not a "subscription" if you buy a liftetime membership. These guys worked hard on a great product. They constantly provide updates and bug-fixes. They deserve to be paid. Even if you do want to pay, the computer app is still free, I think.
  • Groovy!!!
  • Hi, I come from the future. I'd just like the thank you guys for the lifetime Plex Pass you will give me. It'll be much appreciated! ;) I mean, I was perPLEXed when you contacted to tell me I won. So, yeah it's a pretty neat app. Well done!   Oh, just a heads up: no matter what you do, don't vote republican. Please. You've been warned. Cheers!
  • Oh just for that I am voting Republican.
  • PLEX Me ASAP
  • Through Plex if I'd have the lifetime pass it would make me very much oblige to couple an xbox for my 1520.
  • Comment
  • Finally!! Yay Plex!! Took your cool time though...
  • Awesome! I like plex
  • I'd love to use PLEX on the Xbox One!
  • Wow
  • Fine
  • Awesome!  Plex is a great application.  I have been using it on my Rokus and Fire TV now for years.
  • Have to try it out!
  • Cool its awesome to have plex in stores. Winning is a different thing but I really appreciate the work is done by development team. Hats off for the work they have done. And best of luck for future projects.
    Thanks for reading.
  • My family uses Plex and we are not often in WiFi areas when we want to watch videos.  The Plex sync features offered by PlexPass would be an awesome solution to that problem.
  • Hmmmm....
  • I'm perplexed.
  • About time. #awesomeness
  • If you don't pick me, ISIS and Ebola win.
  • Can't wait till I can pay the one time fee for the Xbox One app (or I win the Plex subscription). Been waiting for this for so long!
  • I need PLEX becuase BACON
  • Programs like this are the future of media services. I need to be able to keep up with today's technology so that I don't fall into the depths of of a technological time stasis and end up like the ensino man or something.
  • I need a Plex Pass membership because I have a 12TB media server, 5 TV's thoughout the house, 6 mobile devices, and 4 family members. I'm heavily invested in Windows Media Center and various plugins / add-ons that make it functional for my needs. I've been workin towards switching to Plex (It already has all my media indexed and scraped), but this would be the final push I need to really go-for-it and revamp everything.   Help me modernize! Please!
  • Make the upgrade. You will be so happy you did!  Awesome setup as well. :)
  • Holy exciting, Batman!
  • Finally!! Yes, me me me please!
  • This would be great.
  • It will be nice to be able to stream from my PC a bit easier.
  • I just began graduate school in a doctoral program for psychology. When I started graduate school I moved back in with my parents and became very poor and very in-dept. When I moved back in with my parents and became very in-dept, I had the added stress of driving ~80 minutes every day to and from school and spending more money than i'd like on gas. When I have such a long drive and spend so much money on gas, I try my hardest to stay in the area around the school as long as possible, so that I can study with the friends who all live around campus. WHen I stay in the area with my friends, I inevitablly hang out with them after our work is done and just hang around their places. When I hang around their places, I don't have access to my large collection of movies/shows/music that they all enjoy. When I don't have access to my collection, we end up not having anything to watch and just sit around bored, leading to an un-productive and less than enjoyable night. When we have a less than enjoyable night, we might stop hanging out. When we stop hanging out, I have less reason to stay in the area, and probably won't study as well or as much. When I don't stay in the area or study as much, I spend more money on gas, fall deeper into dept, and perform worse in school. When I fall deeper into dept and perform worse in school, anxiety overwhelms me and I start failing courses. When I start failing courses, I drop out of school with a huge amount of dept that I still have to pay off, but with no job or means to do so. When I drop out of school while in huge dept, I would have ruined my life and fallen into a deep depression. Don't let me ruin my life and fall into a deep depression. Help me win a Plex lifetime premium membership. <3
  • Since I am at the older end of the X-Box demographic scale, providing me with the lifetime premium membership would be a financially sound move [for them].
     
  • I have a huge collection of pictures and movies stashed 8+ gigs. Having this would really help me out when I'm not at home and want to check something, watch a movie on the go, or simply show off a few pictures that I've taken or found.
  • You don't need Plex if you only have 8 gigs of media! Mods: Do not pick Legoboyii
  • I've been using Plex ever since they released the Windows 8 app a while back. It's great if you have kids and don't want to worry about getting your DVD's/Blu-Ray discs scratched up. It's also nice to be able to go back to some of your old movies you may have forgotten about or not watched in a while and view them again. The one major thing I wish they would improve on would be the music aspect. It's pretty limited from what I've tried to do in the past but the video watching is fantastic. I missed out when they had their Plex Pass for about half the price of what it is now, and I really enjoy watching movie trailers, so it would be extremely nice to get the lifetime pass now. I'm sure the Plex team will be adding more features for Plex pass members as well, which would be great to not miss out on those new bonuses.
  • Sam, do you have a source for this info?  I don't anything on Plex.tv about it.
  • Go Plex!
  • I love me some plex!
  • Yes please
  • Never used it before, but I'll take a free pass
  • Fiball!
  • Nice. Can't wait. I need the lifetime subscription so I can actually use it. Free subscriber for now. Don't really need all the rest of the stuff, but I guess I may have to buy it if this only works with the premium subscription. That's a little disappointing to say the least.
  • I need Plex because it is the oxygen to my movie, music TV and photo consumption. 
  • My home network is a mess. I NEED HELP! Plex please save me.
  • Finally!
  • Awesome cant wait :)  
  • Yes! A life time membership, cool!
  • Great news!  Looking forward to MORE coming to Xbox.    
  • I'm good. Plex free works great for me. Thanks tho
  • I have two reason why I would love to have the Plex lifetime subscription: 1. I face a long commute daily (using bus and train) and having some of my TV shows or movies synced to my phone so I could watch them without blowing my data quota would be awesome! 2. My extended family lives far from me (or I live far from them, depending on who you ask) and I visit them pretty much every month. So the ability to sync the kids' cartoons and my wife's shows to their respective devices without a lot of setting up would be a great time saver and definitely make our road trips a little more entertaining for them. Thank you very much for this opportunity guys!
  • I've been waiting for this on Xbox One for a while now. Can't wait.
  • I need Plex (premium) on the Xbox One because they are a perfect together.  I have been patiently waiting for my Xbox One to be a complete media powerhouse and tomorrow it will be.  Thanks for your hard work. Looking forward to watching a movie tomorrow night on my Xbox without having to switch to my laptop hdmi connection.
  • I have hundreds of Blu-rays that I'd love to convert digital and setup on a home media server. Plex sounds like it'd be ideal for this situation. Plus it was my birthday earlier this year. And my birthday is coming up this next year too.
  • Damn, not I have to get off the pot and start using the Plex Editor to get my collection up to speed.
  • We NEED to be a Plex Pass premium member for life, just because.
  • Ive been using this for years on my NAS, would be awesome to have this on my xbox one as well.
  • Gimme fuel, gimme Plex, gimme that what I desire!!!
  • Woohoo! Finally!
  • Awesome news. Been using Plex at home for a few years now and couldn't imagine life without it. Looking forward very much to trying out this new experience on my Xbox!
  • I love Plex!
  • Awesome!!!
  • I NEED A XBOX ONE woot
  • Finally!
  • I need Plex in every screen I have. Plus I can showcase my awesome nerdiness are work. Meetings will never be the same!
  • Sounds like a great addition to the app offerings.
  • My issue is that I am a time travelling Grand Marshall of the fifth order of the high council of technology. I need a lifetime membership so that whatever time I travel to, I will always have it available. You see, I often forget my credit card details and other payment methods. As you can imagine, my life is very exciting and boring payment methods are least on my mind.
  • If you are a Plex Pass subscriber and would like to see OneDrive support added to Plex, please go to this Feature Request Thread, like the first post and add a plus one comment.  (Note: you must be a Plex Pass member to see this and vote)  Thanks! Note: I already have a lifetime Plex Pass subscription so if by some chance I win the free one here, please draw again and give it to someone else.  Since this article will get lots of attention I just wanted to post this here to gain support for this feature request.
  • Nice to see Plex hop on the train, now if HBO Go would just get their crap together and release an app on current gen consoles.
  • Argh! I just bought a lifetime membership, before Plex doubled their prices.
    It'd be nice if lifetime membership got you the apps for free too.
  • Does the WP app have full music management features eg playlist creation? Or just basic playback?
  • Sound useful
  • Another great app coming to a great gaming console....keep up the good work!!
  • It looks great, can't wait to try it out! 
  • I'll take it! :)
  • Would be cool
  • Nice to see the app make across all Window platforms :D
  • I need a premium Plex account for my children.  Please think of the children!
  • Winning!
  • I love being able to take my library anywhere with internet.
  • Plex running from a Synology NAS for the win!!!
  • I didn't even know what's Plex until now, so it would be nice to get to know him better. Cheers!
  • I don't *need* it, I need food and air. However, after I ate and while breathing I enjoy movies and TV shows I rip from my dvd collection of old sitcoms such as "The Cosby Show". The very thought about being able to watch "The Cosby Show" on my Xbox is making me excited enough to post a comment :)
  • Honestly I was looking for just this. Storing media and easily access it on every device? Hell yes. Collecting movies, shows, etc... For my nephews, niece and when I have kids hopefully :) It'd be awesome!
  • Win...
  • Whoo! I've been waiting for this app. I love my Plex and actually purchased the apps for windows 8 and WP 8. I had to buy a new server recently for PMS since my old PC died, so I wasn't able to get the lifetime subscription before the price went up ;(
  • I love plex.
  • We wants it, we needs it. Must have the plexcious!
  • Didn't realise you would need a premium membership. Fingers crossed I win lol
  • It's great to see another official app release for Xbox One
  • Let's give it a shot.
  • Plex
  • Plex is really useful... Glad it's expanding
  • Why should I comment if I know I won't win. I can't count anymore of how many comments I've written for winning these things. Uggghhhh!
  • Olalala
  • I love Plex and use it already since...I don't know anymore... Years! :)
  • Why do I need to be a Plex Pass Premium subscriber for life? Because of this: "Plex for Xbox, combined with Kinect, supports voice and gesture control, allowing users to navigate their Plex media library, view content, and control playback without picking up an Xbox controller." Netflix is now dead to me since they removed gesture controls completely and nerfed voice commands on their previously awesome app on Xbox One. I only use voice and gesture commands on my entertainment apps on Xbox One, so now I need a Netflix replacement and Plex Pass Premium is the golden ticket. Por favor.
  • Did I win?
  • I shall Plex my TV to binge watch my Walking Dead shows.
  • I've been looking forward to this on the Xbox One
  • No more sitting through a crappy movie for movie nights!!! I can stream better movies when at the friends house!!! It'll be amazing!!!
  • I deserve to win because first, I never win anything, and second, I love media like this and would enjoy this service a lot! :D
  • I own a DeLorean, and as anyone else can tell ya, time travel is expensive, so by winning a lifetime plex membership will allow me cut back on buying plutonium to head forward from the past to stream new movies and let me stay here in the present and watch on my Xbox One!
  • This is awesome! Great addition to Xbox!
  • wow nice! I don't use much plex anymore, well I rarely use the Universal Media Server which is million times better to watch local content. but plex is a nice addition to Xbox One, it will surely be nice to see more apps like this in Xbox One, for people who are not pure gamers.
  • Why shouldn't I work for the N.S.A.? That's a tough one, but I'll take a shot. Say I'm working at N.S.A. Somebody puts a code on my desk, something nobody else can break. Maybe I take a shot at it and maybe I break it. And I'm real happy with myself, 'cause I did my job well. But maybe that code was the location of some rebel army in North Africa or the Middle East. Once they have that location, they bomb the village where the rebels were hiding and fifteen hundred people I never met, never had no problem with, get killed. Now the politicians are sayin', "Oh, send in the Marines to secure the area" 'cause they don't give a shit. It won't be their kid over there, gettin' shot. Just like it wasn't them when their number got called, 'cause they were pullin' a tour in the National Guard. It'll be some kid from Southie takin' shrapnel in the ass. And he comes back to find that the plant he used to work at got exported to the country he just got back from. And the guy who put the shrapnel in his ass got his old job, 'cause he'll work for fifteen cents a day and no bathroom breaks. Meanwhile, he realizes the only reason he was over there in the first place was so we could install a government that would sell us oil at a good price. And, of course, the oil companies used the skirmish over there to scare up domestic oil prices. A cute little ancillary benefit for them, but it ain't helping my buddy at two-fifty a gallon. And they're takin' their sweet time bringin' the oil back, of course, and maybe even took the liberty of hiring an alcoholic skipper who likes to drink martinis and fuckin' play slalom with the icebergs, and it ain't too long 'til he hits one, spills the oil and kills all the sea life in the North Atlantic. So now my buddy's out of work and he can't afford to drive, so he's got to walk to the fuckin' job interviews, which sucks 'cause the shrapnel in his ass is givin' him chronic hemorrhoids. And meanwhile he's starvin', 'cause every time he tries to get a bite to eat, the only blue plate special they're servin' is North Atlantic scrod with Quaker State. So what did I think? I'm holdin' out for somethin' better. I figure fuck it, while I'm at it why not just shoot my buddy, take his job, give it to his sworn enemy, hike up gas prices, bomb a village, club a baby seal, hit the hash pipe and join the National Guard? I could be elected president.
  • Haha great!
  • I will win and end up dead within a year.
  • I need plex because it's only missing on my Xbox
  • I need a plexie plexive plexium plexter plexplex plexus plexer plex lifetime software :-) I have been enjoying the Plex app on my phone for a few months now, but I would certainly use some extra features!
  • I need a Plex pass in my life because I have just been rudely kicked out of MIcrosoft and need something totally awesome to happen! Also its very rainy here now and I just got soaked to the bone!
  • Wait both Xbox 360 and Xbox one. I thought I read from there forums they weren't doing Xbox 360. Guess they changed there mind or had help from Microsoft because the Xbox 360 dev kits is expensive.
  • I NEED to be a lifetime premium member because I plan to live forever and cannot afford to keep upgrading.
  • Been using plex since day one with my day one xbox
  • I love Plex, so excited it's coming to Xbox One!
  • As there are no profile functionality on plex I use a different account for the kids where only family movies are shared. Will my kid's xbox live profile be able to set a different plex account to the one I use on the same xbox?
  • That's cool. It's great to know that Xbox 360 also coming soon.
  • If I win this I promise to watch my anime in all its subtitle goodness without any playback errors. The first show I'll watch is Trigun: Badlands Rumble, my media server is ready ;)
  • I need to to watch shows ;)
  • Let me also try...bring it on:)
  • I need the Plex Pass because i use the "non Plex Pass" Plex every day... Also i need it because my GF hates when the "things" don't work and every time i use Plex and then she's happy, so a Plex Pass for life would really make me happy...   And right now i'm studying Computer Science and as a student i don't got that much money, so that would be really awesome! :D
  • I need this Plex Premium Lifetime Pass because ever since I was a child, my parents have kept me indoors, making me sweep up, wash dishes and fix wifi problems. Even worse, I have basic free TV channels so have to wait years to get the latest movies. Movies are the only way I can learn about the outside world (well... movies and WPCentral) so it would be a true pleasure to get the hottest new releases as soon as they're out.
  • Nice Nice Nice! This is just the beginning of having more useful apps on the Xbox. Plex is no XBMC because of it lack of customization but i have completely bought in to them. Being able to have all my media everywhere in an easy to use and beautiful gui, as well as share media with friends/vice versa, just makes this the best media center package out there!. YAY!!!!
  • I need plex media pass because I have a house full of media and friends and yet no one knows how to download or use it so I want to make them speechless with the simple addition of this pass and hey presto all three 360's and ONE as well as venue 8 pro and three windows phone will be hooked up. Plus I am a LumiaElite NokiabyMicrosoft champion so im going to show it off and recommend it to everyone through enterprise media ;) .
  • This would help me complete the holy trinity between the PC, phone and Xbox. This would be great!
  • Because my kids destroy physical media!
  • Would love to win it. I have plex on all my devices and really want to be able to use the Sync features, both Plex and cloud (which seem pretty awesome.)
  • This app/program sounds amazing. I have hundreds of DVDs and this sounds like a perfect solution to my problem. Having them digitized with art work and plots ... Perfect. And, down the road an update that will allow me to incorporate my music and photos.... I am looking forward to this app release tomorrow and I had never heard of Plex before.
  • The daughter of the owner always win this . Anyway, I want it!! MY precious!!!
  • Here is my comment. hope I win. I use Plex quite a lot, it would make it easier to use all the functions...
  • I never win either, but congrats to the person that does. :)
  • Finally, MKV and Flac on the Xbox One... Cool cool cool [Abed style] ^^
  • Because nobody understands the cloud, its an effin mystery!
  • Bridging the -media- gap between my Xbox one and my plex server would be more than welcome. Looking forward to streaming and transcoding media files to X1 for eternity :)
  • This is wonderful news! I have been hoping and waiting for this to happen. Now if only I had a premium subscription...
  • I think it would be cool to check Plex out, hope I win!
  • Sounds good, what's the advantage of using this instead of sharing via a PC homegroup? You can share to any dlna enabled device and you can share files.
  • Sam I would love to win I have kids I travel a lot and it would help out been out on the road would make the trip a lot more easier for the kids with movies to watch on their devices even at home too. And not only that I am trying to take the leap of cutting the cord. I read a lot of the other comments and how they all seem to own some sort of streaming subscription I don't even have a Netflix account or Hulu. I think you get where I'm going with this. Please help me add my first streaming subscription. Please help a father out my family would be forever grateful. Thanks Sam
  • Only need 1 device to store all media files, and enjoy them on all devices I own. That's what I dreamed before. Will be glad if plex can make it happen... Posted via the Windows Phone Central App for Android
  • Nice, i can now see my content while my daughter uses the tv.
  • Hi ho silver!
  • I NEED Plex Pass for life because lots of people use my Plex server...in order to ensure a quality, 24x7 Plex experience, I need to be sure I have Plex Sync always ready for my server users to grab their content -- I truly NEED a constant supply of Plex Pass :)
  • Niiiiiiice
  • Love Plex! It is great when your are waiting for an appointment.
  • Comment? Oh..you mean like this?
  • This looks cool! I like the looks of the UI... This would be a great addition to have across my Windows devices!
  • I need this because I was dumb and didn't buy it a week ago before it doubled in price. Posted via Windows Phone Central App
  • Comment!
  • I know airplay is dumb.. I need plex to show/know how dumb it is :) #xboxone
  • Oh yeah
  • lifetime premium would be nice!
  • Pick me and make me feel bad about all of the hours I've put in to making my media library look awesome in Media Browser 3
  • Love Plex!  Can't believe it's finally coming to the XO!
  • Great news!
  • Count me in!
  • Been waiting for this all my life. I have plex on all my devices. With this app now I can get rid of the Roku in my Living room. Plex is the best. This is one company that is not shy about support all platforms. This is awesome.
  • In the words of Ronan Keating "if tomorrow never comes" will really screw up my plex plans for the day after today!!!
  • So many of my friends are going to get stoked for this!! I would love to win that premium subscription.
  • Shouldn't this be fun!
  • i need it so i can catch up on all the shows i have missed since i was born. Who needs a life
  • How perplexing? Now give me my membership
  • Nice! I was just looking last night to see if this app was available on the Xbox One. Want.
  • I would love a Plex Pass.  I'm really close to completely 'cutting the cord' and this will help with that transition.  I already use Plex daily with my Roku and believe me it is annoying to move my Roku around from room to room.
  • Taking care of three kids is a fulltime job. Keeping them entertained and satiated w/ educational content can be quite daunting. Being able to utilize our own local content, anywhere in the world, would be a huge advantage!
  • Would like to win a lifetime membership, especially now,  since they've doubled the price of it. 
  • Can't wait for it !
  • Yay!
  • Yes please!
  • Awesome
  • because I'm a hippieh! hoooooraaayyyh!!
  • Now I can give my Roku away
  • Great News! I hope we can buy the app soon. Why I need a Plex Pass? well, I have some devices with plex access, including my phone, it would be great is I can have all great features on all my devices.   Well, good luck to everyone!
  • Glad to see Plex arrive in the first year. This is a good sign for the Xbox One platform.
  • I need this. Without an easy way to watch my delightful home made cat videos on my xbox one, my life would be unfulfilled, UNFULFILLED I SAY! Is that something you really think you could live with on your conscious? Please look upon youselves, and spare me the eternity of problem ridden dlna and grace me with a Plex Lifetime Pass. Plex is life, Plex is love.
  • Because PREMIUM sounds like a beautiful way to get all my stuff across my Xbox One, Lumia 1020, Surface RT, Surface Pro 2 and desktop PC but I spent ALL my money on buying these devices. LOL.
  • Because, Windows Phone. :D
  • This app alone makes the XBONE finally worth it.
  • Sign me up
  • Wait a lifetime membership? Pick me pick me !!!
  • Leaving a new comment since I missed the ball on the first one and didn't give a reason. Probably because all I can think about is how crucial movie watching is for my entire family. With two youngsters under the age of 6, the ability to digitize my movies so their grubby little hands don't scratch those EXPENSIVE Disney blu-rays is a realy pocketbook saver. But thus far, my ability to stream those movies to the Xbox One is fairly limited. This Plex App and corresponding Lifetime Membership would change all of that. So don't pick me for me, pick me for my kids.  Think of the children!
  • With 3 kids a plex lifetime membership would make it much easier for my wife to play videos from our library on the Xbox one than through what she's always complaining about now which is the slow DLNA tv
  • Boop
  • I'm in Posted via the Windows Phone Central App for Android
  • This is what i have been waiting for. Controlling the movies with kinect, here we go!
  • This prime space for rent. PM me for rates.
  • I commented. Pick moua!
  • I don't see my initial comment anywhere so here goes again.  Plex is awesome.  Use it regularly as it is on a lot of devices already.  Coming to Xbox One is great.  Thinking the kids might get a great Christmas gift this year...
  • This sounds like it would be helpful and cool. I have so much media, and my family could have access to it finally
  • I'm looking per-plexed to how this is going to work...hmmmm
  • As a grad student many, many miles away from home, I would greatly appreciate the chance to watch my family's home movies again streamed from my home server all the way to my college apartment.  I can only do it with a Plex premium membership!
  • Cant wait until it is released
  • Recently discovered Plex and I'm loving it. Using the Windows and WP-apps at the moment, and I have plans to complete my MS ecosystem with an Xbox One soon(ish). Would love to have an easy way to watch my movies and tv-series on the tv without having to go via computer.
  • this will make me turn on my xbox :)
  • Think Plex has the DLNA down? Better than Miracast iteration? Hope so...
  • On the weekends, I hang around with this old man who lives in a police box. I know right? Who uses those anymore? Anyways, when we use his "TARDIS" (I know, weird name right?) it takes a while to get from place to place and I would prefer to watch my content on Plex, by that's getting harder and harder as the economy is rough these days. If they could help me solve this problem, that would be fantastic!
  • Awesome to finally sede PLEX on XBOX!!!
  • The wife isn't going to be very happy with me spending another $150 after the new computer build. Plex would complete that awesome experience and a free subscription would insure me not losing bed and night time fun privileges. Please don't leave me hanging WPC!
  • Lol. People will say the funniest things when free stuff is up for grabs! :)
  • Good stuff
  • I need a plex pass membership so that I can actually use this app ;)
  • Cool. Bought the WP version a while back, but I have no real use for it on WP, would on Xbox One thou. Would be nice to win something like this for once xD
  • I would love to win this as it would allow me and my wife to upload stuff and share it between all of our devices, share pictures of our little ones much easier too! Good luck to everyone!
  • Been using basic Plex for about 6 months.  Love it.  With 4 kids, premium would make the whole family happy. boys could have their own view and not have to browse through girls videos (like frozen) = boys happy girls could go through every barbie movie without losing place in queue = girls happy parents limit what kids see = mom and dad happy mom downloads videos for offline viewing = mom happy everyone happy with tech that works and I'm the hero = dad happy
  • I'm psyched as I am finishing up my server sometime this week to support this!
  • My anaconda don't want none unless you got PLEX, hun  
  • What the heck is Plex?
  • Awesome! Let's see if I win that membership. :-)
  • Nice!
  • Pick me... Pick me
  • I need plex because I worked at blockbuster for 4 years and I need my fix more than anyone after having 10 free rentals a week every week, I need my plex fix
  • Reasons I need a Plex app lifetime premium membership.   1. I want to plex my XBOX's muscles 2. I like pictures. Movies have 24 pictures per second. *mind blown* 3. I don't want to constantly be referred to as, "That guy without a Plex lifetime premium membership." I'll never life it down. 4. Zombies
  • Looks great, glad Plex made it to Xbox One as well.
  • This is great news. Xbox One is slowly getting sweeter and better.
  • Hopefully this will be available for the 360 as well!
  • In the article it said in the coming weeks
  • Hit me up with that lifetime Plex pass!
  • I need to win because with the plex release tomorrow it will feel like my birthday tomorrow, oh wait it is my birthday tomorrow anyway.
  • I would love to have Plex so that I can watch movie trailers, download other apps and sync my data in the cloud, enabling me to access Plex from all my lovely windows devices. I need a lifetime membership so that I have the freedom to use it anytime I want. Even when I grow older and I can transfer it to my children and grandchildren and grand-grandchildren and so on forever!
  • Because with Plex, my daughter will be able to watch Mickey Clubhouse without asking me to start the good old media center
  • Sign me up!
  • I don't know anyone who won't love to be a lifetime premium subscriber of plex.
  • Very nice !!!
  • Plex rhymes with Flex, and i wish i was flexable, which probably won't happen. so the best i can hope for is to get Plex :]
  • Can't wait to install it on my Xbox :)
  • ok running around in circles best new this year for the xbox one
  • Great news, I've been waiting for this.   I've also wondered which will come first, Plex of the October update with DLNA support. I guess we know that now. :)
  • Plex is amazing! Been using it in our apartment for a couple of years now.
  • Awesome
  • Well, to stream media content onto any device I have at that particular point of time, I need Plex. It syncs all the media wirelessly so that'd be a win-win situation and Plex supports most of the platforms out there, so yeah Premium Subscription would be amazing.
  • Winning would be great, was very bummed to read that they just doubled their prices 6 days ago :| I have been procrastinating building my media server and I waited too long!
  • I need Premium mebersip because: Right now I am on basic, and do not get to enjoy the following features: Camera upload: I can now see my pics on any device Plex sync: I travel so many places where getting a mobile network is so difficult! I can use the offline feature! Cloud sync: I can put all my personal media on cloud and access it anywhere! Trailers & Extras: This would help me plan my next fun-filled weekend! Free Apps: My Roku 3 would now be more useful! (I use Xbox one in my living room and roku in my bedroom) Multi-user control: I can now participate for sharing my media with other friends!
  • What is plex? just kidding, a very cool prize indeed.
  • Yo Gabba Gabba!!!
  • Finally!! I've been waiting a long time for this. I recently replaced XBMC with Plex at home (and on all my mobile devices). XBMC user since forever (Xbox Media Player on the original Xbox) but Plex is the future. And with this app the circle is complete - XBMC started on Xbox and now Plex is there on the XB1 :) For those that don't know, the product now known as Plex Home Theater is based on XBMC. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plex_(software)
  • If I don't get the lifetime Plex pass, how will I possibly watch all those old episodes of Dateline, and Singled Out, on my computer?
  • The new Plex app for XBOX One looks really cool ;)
  • Plex is freaking awesome. I've had my server running for a couple years now and my library is my pride and joy (sorry son). I don't watch any TV and rarely use Netflix. I bought two Rokus just for Plex. For once in my life, I'd like to win something.
  • I need this because none of the other similar services have Xbox apps yet! After converting all of my media (movies, music and pictures) to digital format, I need a reliable way to play it! Plus I will pledge to not rest in my quest to save the world from rogue ninjas one action game at a time!
  • I have been waiting for this!!!!!
  • Oh wow, this would be such a great prize to win.
  • I need this so that I can browse my media, much like I did with the Xbox 360... and it will also help keep me ocupied so that I don't spend time working on my plans to destroy the World.
  • Holy crap that that is one hell of a giveaway
  • It's about time, I've been waiting for this since I got my X1.
  • The wp8.1 and w8 versions do not require Plex Pass why the xbox one version does???
  • Please help. I am backrupt and this is my only hope!!
  • It would be awesome for streaming all my TV shows and home videos to all my devices!
  • Yep this is great news. The lifetime pass is even better.
  • Hope that they support HD audio Passtrough or Decoding so that I can get full 7.1 channel surround.  Currently this is only possible with the full Plex Home Theater Install.
  • Exelent. i will get my xbox one this Saturday, :)
  • I'm actually more into MediaBrowser3 since they support liveTV streaming, but would check out Plex for a free subscription.
  • So I can watch my family videos from my gorgeous Xbox One without having to mess with any geeky technical details - how easy is that? :)
  • Yup I commented
  • Hehaaaa
  • I want it.  Cause I'm awesome.  And this offer is awesome.  So it would be natural for all this awesome to be consolidated into a single space.
  • Wow, this looks great.  Would love a free membership.
  • heeeey youuuuuu guuuuuuuuuuuys!
  • It's about damned time... Now where is HBOgo???
  • Living without Plex is like gone offline (no internet) and phone battery out of order :) I cannot live without that,  with Plex + Xbox One is getting an complete solution for all of my entertaitnment needs: Gaming + Watching TV + NOW: Movies, Photos, Videos of my own.. so it's awesome..
  • Woooow nice ..
  • i need a reason to leqve netflix.  i already have sorts of media devices to access Plex if i win, so why not just give it to me?
  • Ok
  • Hi

  • WOW!! This is what the Xbox One needs? Now all we need as an "Xbox Lite" (ahem Xbox Media Centre Edition ;0) to put in the living room to rival Ruko and the like.
  • Premium subscription... sounds Posh. Fingers crossed.
  • i am cuckoo for cocoa puffs (Plex).
  • I need to win Plex so I can show all my dumb friends what a fantastic media app it is, as well as the Xbox One as a home entertainment device. 
  • And the prize goes to.....

  • Hands down the best home streaming server/client I've ever used.
  • Tomorrow is Great Day for all Xbox One users because we getting plex it's Fantastic.Tomorrow is not Tuesday it's Plex Day
  • Because if I don't get this, then the terrorists win. Do you hate America? I didn't think so.... USA! USA! USA!
  • Nerdgasm! Finally all those hours ripping my bluray collection pays off!
  • I need Plex so I won't have to Flex my Spandex just to switch my movie to Triple X.  
  • I need a good media jukebox, essentially. And this could fit the bill.
  • About time! The Xbox is a well rounded machine after its first year. Just has to get a move on with more ID games
  • Because i love Plex so much <3
  • By winning this lifetime pass, I would finally figure out for myself what is all the rage about Plex, and how great it is!
  • Plex is the quintessential piece that is needed for a great home theater experience! Woohoo! Posted via the Windows Phone Central App for Android
  • FIngers crossed!
  • Finally... Better late than never I suppose.
  • I need to be a Plex Premium member for life because I <3 Plex more than sandwiches.  
  • Oops...my tunafish just walked out on me.  "Baby, I didn't mean it!"
  • I need to win because my wife wants to get an Apple TV, and I want to build an HTPC running a Plex server with an Xbox One serving as the interface. If I don't win this contest, Apple wins. Nobody here wants that.
  • Hmmm, my comment doesn't appear to be here.  Was it removed? Either way, want Plexpass for the family so I can use Plex Sync
     
  • Nice!
  • Winning this would be nice :)
  • love me some plex!
  • Just becuse I like free stuff
  • I need Plex pass for that sync feature. The internet goes out sometimes when you're watching movie. Plus that will get me storage for pics and videos. Thanks WP central
  • Add native tuner and DVR support and this would be the ultimate media centre server.
  • I would love to try this. My previous attempt at streaming to an xbox 360 with other software wasn't very positive.
  • Why do I need this? Because having access to ALL my media EVERYWHERE is just TOO AWESOME!
  • I would love to win this! Thank you!
  • I need this Plex Premium Pass because I am tired of fiddling with other solutions such as XBMC/Kodi. It's time to supercharge my home entertainment system.
  • I use plex all of the time but would to have the fun of getting the early access with a lifetime plex pass.
  • How else am I going to get Boobah, Peppa Pig and The Wiggles on all my devices.
  • I NEED a Plex Pass for life because living without it is like The Doctor without a TARDIS. How can I enjoy all my media content on the go when it's on my PC and I'm not there? How can The Doctor travel through space and time when the TARDIS is somewhere else? What if the Daleks attacked?   TLDR: If I had a Plex Pass lifetime subscription I could save the universe and travel in time on my Windows Phone.
  • I'd love me some Plex!
  • Hi
  • Wow Plex is awesome, if I win this I don't need to use a USB flash drive to copy stuff to my other devices.
  • Because streaming content with Plex keeps my wife and three kids happy and I NEED to keep them happy. My health depends on it if you know what I mean.
  • Bass
  • Oh that's cool
  • That's exciting as ****. Plex is amazing. Even if you don't win this challenge you should consider getting it.
  • Premium lifetime membership?! Yes please!
  • Could use the lifetime membership, I love sharing my movies with friends and family.
  • I've heard about this app so many times. Would love to give it a go
  • Sweet! Now if I win this sub it would be even better :P
  • So my life will be almost complete... Too much? People do crazy stuff for free items...
  • Pick Me, Pick Me! I Luv Plex and WPCENTRAL
  • The new interface looks really cool! The music and photo stuff will be great when they add that too. Used it on my Roku for a while, but I'm on my Xbox One 99% of the time now.
  • Cool, I dont believe. I never win anything anyway. :(
  • Can't wait for this!
  • Because I never win anything that is good for me.  Last time I won something I was in bed for 2 weeks!
  • Plex free? Yes please!
    That is all.
  • I could use the plex app for streaming my  pics and vids for my social media apps and channels .
  • This looks really nice!
  • I want Plex because I find my movie, video, photo, and music collections all very disorganized. There is not one app that I have that combines them all together and makes it easy to view them all at once. Plex makes me do this. Not only that, Plex is a fresh idea from a developer that supports all Microsoft products, so I would love to return the favor by being a lifetime subscriber :)
  • Sounds great!
  • This would be a great option for me to keep my grandparents on top of my photos
  • Maybe Plex still have more waf, wife acceptance factor, then using "play to" on the surface. I don't get out either.
  • This would be awesome! I have 6TB of movies and TV shows that are no longer very accessible since I switched from my media centre to the Xbox One, so I really NEED Plex to get a great media centre experience back!
  • One for me.....
  • MY XBOX IS READY!   This is awesome! no more having to use my laptop to view my collection on the big screen! Greats news GeneralSham!
  • I need it because I'm a media hoarder and need help watching all of my shows
  • Love plex.....been really looking forward to an Xbox app.....with a nice interface...I stream my home movies and watch some revision shows
  • I love Plex.  I only wish they would make the WP app a little more streamlined.  I would like the option to have text-only when I'm looking at the Album or Artist list--I don't need the little pictures that are slow to load. Also, I don't like the left-aligned controls.  It's too much of a stretch and I'm too clumsy when I'm holding the phone in one hand. Of course that is partly Metro/Modern UI to blame.  I've gotten to really dislike the whole approach (art over function).  This is where I miss the customization of other OSs.
  • woo
  • Finally!!!  I have been trying to convince the team over at XBMC to go back to their roots but they aren't willing to move back to Xbox.  That's unfortunate, since when Plex comes out I will no longer have a need for my ancient HTPC running XBMC software. Why do I need this membership - it is a marriage saver.  Running XBMC and all of its quirkyness is fine for a computer geek but not for the wife.... So WPCENTRAL or whatever we are going to call you -  SAVE MY MARRIAGE - pick me for the lifetime membershipe.  Remember when the wife is happy life is happy....   ;)  
  • I love plex! I would like to win it so I don't have to pay. I'm in love with plex and will probably get a monthly subscription. It's a lot of money to get a lifetime subscription... Though I would like it, the benefits were never good enough for me to subscribe. But now that I am able to talk to plex, I am definitely going to go for it. Hopefully I will win because I hate spending money though now I have to... It still feels good because they deserve it for creating such an awesome product yay!
  • This would be awesome to win!!!
  • Cool.....cant wait to see the interface
  • WIndowsPhone, erm *cough* phone soon to be running 'just' WIndows, check.
    Home media pc, check.
    Xbox... I wish Plex? mmmm now that would be a good addition to college life. 
    Yes, it is settled then.  I need this, we must have... my precious.... The master will give us precious...
     
  • This is excellent news! But please don't pick me as I'm already a lifetime Plex member. Yep, it's that good. I'm punting my AFTV and my Roku tomorrow as long as the XBOX version supports 5.1 channel sound. To the best of my knowledge the AFTV still doesnt support 5.1.
  • I want to win.
  • Yeeeeaaaaahhhhh Baby! I can't wait. PLEX ROCKS! My life will finally be complete! :)
  • Because it would help me have plexual intercourse with my SO.
  • I'm a student, i can't pay a TV service and i need to watch things sometimes to get distracted. That's why i need it ;-;
  • Welcome
  • Plex!
  • Awesome!  No more HDMI cables to stumble across. :D
  • A free lifetime pass? Yes please!
  • Using plex would allow me to ditch my current poor DLNA solution...
  • Now this is awesome
  • CANT WAIT FOR PLEX
  • Thank you !
  • I love Plex. Hope I'll win.
    Good luck to everybody.
  • I need a plex premium pass... to be a bad dude. And as it turns out, ninjas have kidnapped President Ronnie. I need to be a bad enough dude to rescue him.
  • I need to win because my wife wants an Apple TV, but I want to build an HTPC running a Plex server with an Xbox One as the interface. If I don't win this, she might get her Apple TV. Nobody here wants this to happen. If I win, Microsoft wins my living room, which means as fans of Microsoft, we all win. Pick me.
  • Hell yeah!
  • It's so fluffy!
  • I have been waiting for this for a long time.  Love the idea and want to see it in action.  Why does it require a subscription?
  • I love the fact that the developer is understanding what people want and this makes my life much easier that is does a lot of the work for you. I would love to have the subscription to get more features and functionally. It works great on my Nas and seems to be pretty solid.
  • A Lifetime Premium Membership would be absolutely fantastic! This would work perfectly for me to access my entire music library while I'm at rehearsal to pull up different recordings! Plus, it's great news to hear that it is coming for XBox 360! I can't wait!
  • I love plex, the first server applications that actually did what it said and did it right. Currently I have it managing a collection of over 500 of my DVDs. Hands down, I am in love with this software!
  • I need some good news, been waiting for plex ever since they were excepted to id@xbox. I sold my Wii u. Only console I could easily use with plex. Get news today that its final coming, only to find out if you have plex pass. I need that in me life. Please!!!!
  • W00T!
  • Shweeeeeeet!
  • From the day I was born, there was a prophecy that I would be saved from the horrors of Play Station and finally Xbox Box One would save the planet by using its most secret weapon named PLEX. I am the only guy who can pick up and use the secret weapon in order to make this prophecy come true and alive. And then my children and their children could save guard the weapon for years and years to come and make this world a better and save place to live.
  • I'm a Plex server user. I like the service and I'm recomending it everywhere. I've already installed the server on my fiances PC in her home, so that she can whatch all her favorite shows on her Samsung TV.  I already have the Plex App on my Lumia 1520, my Samsung tablet and my Windows PC. But I don't have the ability to use Plex on my big screen TV. The Xbox One app is a very interesting thing, and one of the first thing I'll try (besides games of course) when I buy my Xbox One for christmas!
  • I need this lifetime subscription! Just bought a 3TB drive and loaded my movies to it. Loving the user friendliness of Plex so far. Posted via the Windows Phone Central App for Android
  • i could most definitly use plex. I have hundreds of movies on my computer and would make life easy. Friends and family come to me on whats the latest. SO if i have this and use it , alone that would increase there sales. As i work the tech field and i get paid to tell people what to buy or use.
  • I've used Plex for a while now and it's very useful.  Bought it for my phone and I've got it on our Samsung TV so I can stream everything across.  And I stream from my friends servers too!
  • Having used Plex for years, this is pretty great news for me.
  • This is cool!!
  • That's really cool!
  • I really want to find a suitable replacement for windows media center. I constantly hear about how awesome this is so I would love to win and spread the news about its awesomeness.
  • This is awesome! I know that I would make great use of that lifetime membership !
  • I need a lifetime membership so I can serve my parents with free streaming music, movies and TV shows! (and myself also of course)
  • Would work great to use my 928 and my Xbox one
  • HI.... Greetings from El Salvador, its a great new.. I would really like to receive the premium pasa.... PLS choose me...
  • Plex is pretty based. Netflix is complete garbage on WP, so streaming an large video library is a nice alternative.
  • wow, the world of plex for $4.99 a month. Hey I'm not complaining or am I about to start I just cant understand why My favorite company has to charge me for everything they have in their arsenal. I already purchased the XBox One expecting to have a few perks over the Xbox360 but so far I havent seen any. Oh Well I might as well fork over the 39.00 just to say that I purchased it -  Plex Pass that is.    Did I Win? 
  • ... fortune come to me ;)
  • I just missed being able to buy the lifetime subscription befort the price hike, so winning this would be awesome.
  • ooooo yeahhh :) nhl app and plex app in the same week ???? is it christmass ???? :)
  • Plex is an AMAZING media streaming experience. It far surpasses any other solution that I've tried. The user community is extremely helpful and the development team is constantly coming out with new updates which bring all sorts of interesting features, many of which I didn't realize were so necessary. I have the client on every platform I can install it on and I would LOVE to win a subscription to give to my parents.
    PICK ME!!!!
    ... Please?
  • If I win, I will buy an Xbox One immediately.
  • Would be nice if they supported live tv like media browser does(on windows phone)
  • Plex, the Netflix with a proper number of movies. Netflix lacks so many movies in Europe it's really of no use. Then I used Plex and I never looked back. Netflix left the building, Plex entered the building. Plex coming to Xbox One tomorrow is superb. Lifetime Plex Pass membership would be the icing on the cake. 
  • Would be nice if it supported live tv media browser does(on windows phone)
  • Thank you WPCentral.
  • Loved this appn
  • Plex is a fantastic app, I use it on all my platforms and the experience is top-notch.
  • my motivation is simple: my current subscription is about to expire!:)
  • I NEED to win the lifetime membership, so I can finally ditch that crappy Apple TV which is now my media player for plex. I want 1080p :-)
  • I need to be a Plex lifetime subscriber because my family recently cut the cord and need Plex to enjoy our family entertainment together. Otherwise I'm just the bad guy hogging the One and 360 gaming all the time. I also have a new baby on the way and my Barney and Wiggles tapes aren't going to cut it on my old VHS player. Plex to the rescue!
  • Thank God, Now all I need is crunchy roll app for my xbox one, and funimation app... 
  • Yes! Been waiting for this since the whispers started in April. Plexible = Flexible
  • Gotta love me some Plex.
  • whammy!
  • Finally the Box One just became useful and I can retire the Xbox 360
  • I need this so I can get my media all around the house and on the kids iPads! Get them off my telly!!
  • I need PLEX so all my media can be in One device, the Xbox One :)
  • Hello
  • I don't know what is plied plex
  • Woof
  • XBMC has been good to me but now the requirements at home have changed with phones & tablets Plex has fit my needs nicely.
  • That would be excellent, I bought an XBone to replace my x360 media centre having plex available on xbone completes that! Woot!
  • OMG finally!
  • This is truly awesome!!! Since there's no nas access on the default xb1 player this comes very handy
  • I'll try my luck ;)
  • Plex is the best!
  • Cool. Finally I can stream things from my pc!
  • I love PLEX!!!
  • I'll take it. Then maybe I'd use my Xbox for more than playing one video at a time, mostly bluray. I've been using the roku support for playing old star trek episodes from my plex server. It is awesome for music!
  • Plex is here to stay
  • I wish they announced the membership would be required to have this on the XBox before they raised their prices. I didn't see a compelling reason to pay for a subscription until now. $80 is reasonable for a lifetime membership but $150 is excessive for a product that will likely be obsolete in the four years it will take to make that a savings of any kind. I love PLEX but the new pricing model is out of whack.
  • One commented to RULE THEM ALL!!
  • So when's the October update?
  • Plex, please.
  • I already use the XBox one as my main media contant, this would add even more content for me and my family. On a side note WP Central does pretty good on getting worthwhile prizes.
  • This is a great service and cant wait for tomorrow!
  • I think the big news is that is will be available on the 360 as well. I can't wait for that. I have a 3 x 360's at home as well as a Roku streaming stick. This means that I will now be able to get Plex on every PC.
  • I want this so badly!!!!!!
  • = (I knew i should have jumped in when the price was still 9.99.month... Maybe you'll pick me for the lifetime so I won't be sad anymore!
  • I love Plex, can't wait to download this for my Xbox's.
  • Holy crap I need this so hard. I've been using plex for about two years now and its fantastic. If you don't have it, get it. I host 4 TB of movies, tv shows, and music on my home computer, soon to be upgraded to a 20 TB NAS system because I'm rapidly running out of room. SOOOO excited for plex on Xbox one, this was the final piece to the puzzle. Its awesome being on vacation and watching movies from home at night. It also helps because my fiancee lives 1200 miles away due to school so we can watch movies "together" over Skype and Plex. I meant to get the lifetime subscription before the $75 offer ended but I got caught up being out of town with work until end of quarter. Bleh :( Maybe they'll have a 25-50% off sale for cyber Monday. *crosses fingers*
  • Awww damn, gimmie gimmie gimmie!!!!
  • I must have been hiding under a rock to have never heard of Plex before! 
  • Been wating for this for ages my entertainment center is complete.
  • Plex!
  • This is some cool stuff! I totally Want This it's just what I needed all these years how come I've never seen this? Would be cool then if I could win this!
  • Sweet
  • I've been waitīng for this, and the only thing better is to get it with a lifetime pass.
  • I have a big plex server at home and a plex pass would top that off nicely.  I was miffed that they stopped supporting the WP7.8 client but thankfully they picked up or were paid to update for WP8 so it's worked out awesome in the end.
