The popular multimedia content manager will have Plex client for Apple TV. That’s what one of its co-founders said. Something impossible until now and that only those who had one of the Apple TV’s that allowed Jailbreak could do or by means of far-fetched methods.

Between now and the end of October, when the new Apple TV will be on sale, we will have to be patient. But I’m sure we’ll get to know many interesting details about this type of apps that allow the playback of content stored on the network. Maybe future versions of Synology’s DS Video.
