Following Apple’s unveiling of the tvOS platform, we can reveal that Apple TV will be getting support for popular media streaming system Plex. The release of tvOS beta and the tvOS Software Development Kit (SDK) means that Plex can finally develop a version of its software for Apple TV.

Plex co-founder Scott Olechowski told ITWorld, “We are very excited to have a crack at bringing our users Apple TV. It’s been a long requested platform and we’re excited to work on it. We want it, our users want it… and we’re anxiously awaiting the tvOS developer beta info, so we can finally dig in.”

When asked if anything might prevent Plex from being compatible with Apple TV, Olechowski replied, “There is no question we will be able to offer Plex on the platform. There are multiple ways to go about it, based on the tvOS SDK we now have access to. We are now evaluating the best path for Plex and will begin work in earnest once we have evaluated the options. The ability to access great and proven iOS frameworks on the device is great for developers like us — we know the stuff is solid and will perform really well. Our goal is to enable people to enjoy Plex on the hardware platforms of their choice, and there is no doubt this will be a top platform for us.”

Olechowski, though, refuses to put a timescale on the development of Plex for Apple TV, adding, “Of course we have started digging in and looking at it, but we have some bigger questions to answer before we can set any expectations.”

Thank you ITWorld for providing us with this information.
