Nothing for me, and I never subscribed for Plex Pass.
Would consider it for $99.99 though.

Great offer

OP if you could just edit your title to say $60 Off, instead of 60% off that it currently says
Koodo 14GB for $37.50/mo
3 Years Xbox GPU $100
Fido Internet 300d/15u for $30/mo
Netflix / YouTube / Spotify Group Buys

Thanks RFD!

If you don't need/want the Live TV/DVR and hardware transcoding features, you don't need the plex pass. My NAS can take advantage of the hardware transcoding, so I bought the lifetime pass on the last sale.

I don't have it, but I am looking to subscribe for hardware transcoding and streaming videos on my phone/tablet from my server.

I got it mostly for streaming videos to the phone for kids. I have a lot of kids content on my home server and am trying to keep them off netflix/youtube.

Thanks OP, was waiting on a big sale and never check those emails.

Youtube kids is full of dumb, useless, but very addicting videos. In my opinion if I am wasting my kids time with screen, at least they could do it on something which can be useful for them.

Before most clients could Direct Stream at minimum I would have said Hardware Transcoding alone made the purchase worth it, but now it's just a bonus.

For me it's the Mobile Sync (basically same idea and Download and Go on Netflix/Disney+.

Skip intro is a pretty cool feature too actually and if went back to no Plex Pass, I would for sure miss it.

I don't even have kids and I can see the argument for keeping them off YouTube. Just a cesspool of misinformation, toxic algorithm pushing and don't even attempt to look at the comments section lol

Switch to EMBY instead.

Plex tends to move more and more features into the paid tiers and drops support for old version and NAS devices that were working perfectly fine.

Also, I consider it a little customer-hostile that there's practically no way to use PLEX on an internal network only, without using PlexPass login.

EMBY is free and does most of the same things, without all of the PITA restrictions.

I think there is a problem with giving kids too much choice, with local streaming options I can have a smaller amount of high quality shows and try to avoid as much of the mindless product placement stuff. Of course he still watches his fair share of paw patrol and the like on netflix but we try to limit that as a special treat.

Youtube is especially dangerous because of the endless scroll (kids won't watch something, they will watch 5 seconds and see what else is there). Also, the youtube rabbit holes are real and I won't let him use it on a phone without close supervision.

I don't think screen time is as bad for kids as some people do, but I think the content and the way they consume it is dangerous. The 15 seconds of a video then swiping up to see what else is on is the bad part, just sitting and watching a show for 30 minutes is fine.

EMBY still needs a paid subscription for hardware decoding.

I just searched my email and have an email from Plex offering me lifetime subscription for $74.99 USD...I'm hoping I can still do this. It would $94 CAD this way.

from a quality of information perspective, absolutely. Youtube is full of wacko conspiracies from the likes of QAnon and other content that are legitimately harmful. At least netflix content is vetted

edit to add: pls teach your kids media literacy and how to understand when the information they are receiving is questionable and how to verify information
