The Plex for Smart TVs app is available on a wide range of television models by different manufacturers. We regularly review the functionality and performance of our app on new and existing smart TV platforms to determine which to support.

No Longer Supported TVs
While we previously offered apps for the following smart TV platforms and models, they are no longer actively supported. An older version of our app may still be available on the devices, but the old app will not be receiving updates and may not be compatible with newer features or server releases.
Tip!: Since these platforms and models are no longer supported, we encourage users to instead make use of a modern Plex app on a supported platform. For instance, we have Plex apps available on Roku, Chromecast, Apple TV, Fire TV, Android TV, game consoles, etc.
