Plex giveaway on a NAS-focused site, why?
In March I had my first giveaway and the item was the OWC Mercury Elite enclosure, but for my second one, I wanted to give something that will again be beneficial for all. Considering that a lot of visitors to this site are also interested in running Plex on their NAS devices, or use Plex in a combination with NAS (just as storage for your media), I have decided to go a Plex giveaway.
Another reason is that since March, Blackvoid has jumped from an average of 5k visitors per day to about 15k+ (since last month), and it just felt like I needed to say thank you for all your positive comments, contributions, and general help of putting this site on the map.
What's the prize?!?
As you have read by now, the prize is a Plex Pass subscription, but let me explain a bit about it in detail.
Since last year Plex has terminated the option to gift someone a Plex Pass subscription, now you have to buy it from your valid Plex account yourself.
This will not be a problem as I will explain in the rules section how this will work out.
For now, the prize. This Plex giveaway will be...
That's right, the prize is one (1) annual Plex Pass subscription! You might be wondering why just an annual and not lifetime? Well for the 3rd anniversary there might be an even better prize, so check back in 6 months!
So what are the benefits of running your Plex with a Pass subscription? I will let you decide if it's worth it or not. Just visit the Plex Pass page and look into all the benefits yourself.
Personally, I love Plex, LOVE IT! I have my local media organized inside it (movies, tv, music), connected to TIDAL streaming service for all the music I can handle, and my live TV setup as well.
This allows me to have all my content on virtually any device, anywhere, anytime. I don't need any other app on my smart TV other than Plex, it's all there. The fact that I can view my live tv on my mobile device as well when I am away from home is just a proper "cut the cord" feeling.
I guess one thing that also is a great benefit of running with Pass is Plexamp. Winamp is like a minimalistic player that you can use on mobile and desktop devices, and cast it to any smart device or speaker that you have around. Just brilliant.
UPDATE: Just in time for this giveaway, Plex has announced its new Super Sonic feature for Plexamp. More details here.
The list goes on, but you can check it on the link above yourself to see all the other benefits that Pass will bring to the table.
