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. That's the same price you'd pay for 18 months on the monthly ($4.99) plan, and for a little over two years at the annual rate ($39.99). While it's not the lowest-ever price for a lifetime membership, they're discounted so infrequently that this is still a deal definitely worth highlighting, as we have no idea if or when memberships will be discounted again (or by how much).
