One of popular media program’s key services is shutting down soon.
Plex told users in an e-mail recently obtained bythat it will shut down Plex Cloud on Nov. 30, citing problems with the service.
That stood in stark contrast to, which requires you to have your own server. Indeed, many Plex users have dedicated computers in their homes that are designed solely for storing and managing content.
However, after Plex Cloud launched as an option for people who didn’t want to manage their own servers, users started to complain. The service was buggy at times and caused some odd glitches that Plex was working on. Over the last two months, Plex put Plex Cloud into maintenance mode to see if it could fix its woes.
Now, though, Plex has thrown in the towel. And instead of focusing on fixing Plex Cloud, the company wants to improve upon its core offering and add more features and content.
