Plex, the service that serves already-owned user content to a multitude of devices, announced today that it will have a home on Android TV. More specifically, the company expressed excitement that it would be available on the new Nexus Player. Plex has been working with Google since April to get the service up and running in time for the launch of Android TV.

Here is what Plex said in a blog post:

We’re really enjoying the fresh take that Android TV brings to the table: bold, clean UI designed from the ground up for “lean back” viewing from your couch, and custom home screen recommendations based on your viewing habits are right up our alley, and they mean that Plex and Android TV are a perfect fit.

We would have to assume this means that Plex is going to be available at launch. The Nexus Player goes up for pre-order on October 17.
