TiVo has announced that Plex, a personal media solution for home and mobile devices, will be available 8 June for TiVo subscribers.

The Plex application on TiVo gives users the ability to organise video, music and photo collections and stream them to their TiVo box; while Plex automatically adds movie posters, plot summaries, cover art and descriptions. The app will also allow TiVo users to share their personal media collections on their TiVo boxes.

As far as the functionality, the Plex for TiVo app enables users to keep track of personal media by showcasing recently added content. Users can pick up from where they left off, or play the next episode of their favourite show stored on their PC or media server.

Users can also fling content from the Plex app on their mobile device to their TiVo devices to watch on the big screen, share media among friends and family members, and save online videos from favourite sites to watch later.
