Plex Cloud will shut down on November 30th

Tuesday, September 11th, 2018

It can be inconvenient to keep all your media stored locally, and there are plenty of cloud services that will save a few terabytes of data for a low monthly fee. Plex Cloud was designed to take advantage of that, offering a cloud-based server connection to stream your media. However, after pausing sign-ups earlier this year, Plex has announced the end of the service on November 30th.

According to Plex, it paused Plex Cloud sign-ups in February so it could investigate ways to make the service cost-efficient without sacrificing the user experience.

Sling brings the Cloud DVR feature to Android and Roku devices

Tuesday, April 11th, 2017

Sling TV offers a compelling value for cord cutters who want to stream cable television channels without paying the hefty prices. One of its weaknesses was its all-live setup, which it addressed with the Cloud DVR "First Look" program. Initially limited to Fire devices, the company has now expanded access to the service to Android and Roku players. 

Cloud DVR allows Sling TV subscribers to purchase 50GB of storage to save their favorite content for later on-demand viewing, all for $5 per month.
