Plex Cloud shutting down
Earlier this month, the platform announced that it made the tough decision to shut down Plex Cloud on November 30th.
We hold ourselves to a high standard, and unfortunately, after a lot of investigation and thought, we haven’t found a solution capable of delivering a truly first class Plex experience to Plex Cloud users at a reasonable cost.
