Now you have to download Plex Media Server which you can download from here. Then just download the file, unzip it and it’s setup up. Once you do this, you will see a small icon on your taskbar.
Note: You can also watch YouTube Videos to install the Plex Media Server on your PC.
Step 3: Install the USA Live on Plex
First, we have to head over to Plex web app, on the computer where the Plex media Server is setup. You have to click on “channels”, left-hand bar, and then “Install Channels” button on the right-hand side of the page. Then navigate to Categories in TV. Find the USA live app on the page which is probably at the bottom of the page and click “Install”.
