Over the past few years, Plex has gained increasing attention for its Media Center and Media Server software. While the transition has been subtle, the company is clearly looking to monetize its platform beyond donations. So, it should come as no surprise, but PlexPass is a new subscription service offering early access to premium features.
If you currently use your Mac as a home media hub, you might already be using Plex instead of competitors like XBMC or Boxee. If you aren’t, you may very well be downloading it after midnight tonight, because a new update -- coupled with an all-new iOS app -- brings some magical new capabilities.
