There are plenty of posts from the Plex devs saying YEARS AGO that the Plex Preview app.. the current one available on the Plex store.. will be made available in ZIP form for sideloading. For, you know, all the other countries in the world that aren't the US of A. I'm starting to think it's a lie, there are posts from 2015 from Plex employees saying it would 'be a pain now, but we intend it for everyone!'.
I don't know if they do. I'm suspecting actually instead it sells Plex Passes and that's the name of the game.
Its a simple request, the free software you offer through the Plex channel service.. just put a ZIP of the Preview Client (you know, where stuff works like Collection Artwork) up so the UK and Australia and others who don't have Roku offered first-party can still use Plex without a version from years ago.
I haven't heard a rational or reasonable reason to why this isn't done. All I've seen is a whole lot of 'oh that would be hard' while simultaneously linking to the github where they host every version of the Classic client.
Noone minds buying the Plex Pass but that still doesn't get me the software!! Whats the story Plex? Why are we still here years later? Does Plex officially not give a shit about anywhere but the US? Good thing to know before I invest too much into your platform..
