Plex has announced that the Plex Cloud service ends on November 30th following ongoing problems. Earlier this year, the company already made sure that no new registrations were possible, but now the service, Plex Cloud ends completely.
Plex pulls plug from Plex Cloud
How easy it can be to store all your data locally (on a NAS in your own network), unfortunately that is not possible for everyone. That is why Plex Cloud was a relatively good solution for that problem, because you could then store your data on a cloud server and thus reach it. So you could stream all your media via the internet, of course for a fixed amount per month for your cloud storage service. But problems have been occurring for months; so much so that people can not sign up for Cloud since February.
Since February, Plex has been examining the problem, but until now the company has been unable to get things right. That is why it was decided to stop Plex Cloud . Because a service that just does not work is the same as a service that does not work at all. Although this is of course a miserable development, the positive thing about this story is that you do not lose all your media files – after all, they are on a cloud server from another company. If you still want to play these files, you have to look for an alternative.
