Apple TV might have just won itself a few more fans. Plex, the popular service for organizing and streaming your personal movie and music collection, is finally coming to Apple's home theater device.

Co-founder Scott Olechowski confirmed as much to IT World this week following Apple's announcement that it's opening up the platform to third-party apps with its latest model Apple TV. In a statement, the co-founder said, "We are very excited to have a crack at bringing our users Apple TV." He added, "It’s been a long requested platform and we’re excited to work on it. We want it, our users want it … and we’re anxiously awaiting the tvOS developer beta info, so we can finally dig in." Olechowski also notes that he doesn't expect any stumbling blocks along the way — Apple TV should get a fully featured Plex app.

Of course, it will take some time before the team can develop the app and ship it to users. There's no word yet on when that might be, but at least you can take comfort in knowing that some day you won't have to jailbreak your Apple TV or install a sneaky workaround to stream your digital movies across your home with Plex.
