Plex Live TV and DVR launches for subscribers
From Engadget - June 1, 2017

Plex positions itself as a successor to Microsoft's abandoned Windows Media Center, and for many people it may fit the bill. Especially for those who have already configured their media library for access through its software, adding live TV should be a cheap and familiar option.

If you want to shift video around the house or to a remote device, it's ready to handle the job (for DVR'd content, live TV support will continue to roll out across its apps.)
