Back in January we announced that Watchup had been acquired by Plex, a popular media service that enables users to enjoy all of their personal media libraries across multiple devices. Since then, we’ve been busy integrating the Watchup technology, content, and team into Plex.
Today, we are proud to announce Plex News, the best video news experience that offers you some of the most trusted sources on the planet, presented beautifully and seamlessly alongside your own personal media.
In addition to News, Plex gives you a whole set of features including the ability to watch Live TV with the use of a digital antenna.
In comparison to Watchup, Plex News comes with even more content sources including:
• Build: AOL’s new entertainment channel
• Cheddar: a unique perspective on business news
• France 24: news in French, English and Arabic
• IGN:all the best gaming and entertainment reviews and stories
• Mic: a fresh take on the most popular news stories
• Newsy: multiple points of view on the latest news
• The Blaze: a conservative take on the news
• PHL-17: local news in Philadelphia
To enjoy Plex News, download Plex for free on Android TV (including NVIDIA SHIELD), Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Roku, Android Mobile, and iOS. Other platforms will soon follow, and remember, support for Watchup on iOS, Apple TV, Wii U, Fire TV and Android Mobile will end on November 1st.
Thank you for using Watchup. We hope you continue to enjoy the same great news service (and more) by switching to Plex News.
