Plex Media Client Now Available on Roku

Plex, the popular Mac-fork of the XBMC project announced something pretty exciting – the Roku Streaming Players will now work as extenders (they call them Plex Clients) for Plex!


Plex Media Server works on OS X, Windows (soon will work on Linux), the 2011 LG Smart TV, and now the Roku Streaming Players which start at $59 (720p) and $79 (1080p).  That’s a pretty good value and in my opinion puts Plex up with the best of HTPCs with the low-cost extender options.  Throw in their support for iOS and Android devices as noted in the chart below and I think its safe to say the Plex team has been working on connectivity like no one else.
