Plex is offering a rare 25% discount on a lifetime Plex Pass (new subscribers only)

If you're a Plex user who has stuck with the free tier of the media library streaming service to date, this might finally be the day you convert to paid: the company is offering a rare 25% discount on its lifetime Plex Pass, bringing the cost down to just $90.
