Plex App on V6 Box

Is there any way to load or side load the Plex app on the V6 box to load in a similar fashion to Netflix.  I run a server on my home PC and would like to access my media from the V6 box

Nope, there isn't

All apps available are done via Virgin Media. You can't load your own apps on.

Re: Plex App on V6 Box

Any chance that asking if something is possible (having a Plex app on Tivo V6, for instance) results in a feature request into the Virgin developers?!?

Would be a great feature to add to an already excellent service!  Thanks.

Re: Plex App on V6 Box

Unlikely you will ever get this app available on a rented box. Some of the broadcasters that have agreements with Virgin would probably object, plus the box would have to have compatibility with a load of other third party kit.

This kind of thing ruined & overloaded the old Tivos to extend they wouldn't work in the end, if people want this kind of thing access it another way

Re: Plex App on V6 Box

I happen to think that Plex is an inferior product for media streaming but if you insist you can get an Amazon Fire TV stick for under £40 and download and install the Plex client, and some people just use their Xbox One or PS4 devices.
