Plex was originally a fork from the XBMC project and for MacOS only but it soon covered all major systems and now as well as iOS, Plex supports Android (which XBMC doesn’t). Plex is easy to set up but I am not now using it. My reasons? The ATV2 client for Plex is a bit too buggy and crashes too often for my liking. The PC server software is very slow and loves to scrape for its own thumbnails etc when Sickbeard has already done that. It also crashed plenty of times when importing my (large) library of films and TV shows. However, the Android client was stable and worked well. I may come back to Plex in future. You can also get Plex on GoogleTV boxes and on some TVs (LG and Samsung Smart TVs).
