Searching and Requesting Movies

Searching the Plex archive and can’t find what you want to watch? Is Plex missing a season? Well you can now request it!

On the search page you are given a few options. You are given two selections, Movies or TV Shows.

Search Options

You click on the option, either Movies or TV Shows, you want to search for and then go to the search bar. At this time, you will type in your search. When you get your search results to the right of the page, there are options where you have the ability to select what you want to do with any given search result (see Movie Request Options below).


Movie Request Options

The options are either to request the movie you searched for or search for similar type movies. If a movie is already requested you are provided with an additional option: “Subscribe.” Subscribing will sign you up to receive notifications if a movie is approved and will provide you with updates throughout the approval process.

Request, Subscribe, or Similar Options
Pending Approval

Once you’ve made your request, you will see “pending approval” (the orange box on the right.

TV Shows

The options are almost identical to the movie request process; however, when requesting a TV show you are provided with additional options, such as “All Seasons”, “First Season”, “Latest Season”, or “Select” which allows you to request a particular season other than all, first, or latest season.
