So guys, I just got an Apple TV as a Christmas present but I would like to have Plex on it, so I can stream my movies to the living room.

It comes with firmware 4.3 right out of the box and I have already rejected the update to 4.4. I need to stream the movies before Christmas.

Is it possible for me to jailbreak it and run Plex?

PS: As another question, can I play my Plex movies on Apple TV and choose the subtitles like on Mac Mini?

I used to have Plex running on my Apple TV 2, you just need to jailbreak it then connect to it using your Mac to install Plex.
Assuming your Apple TV is software version 4.2.2 (IOS 4.3 I think) then you can follow this guide: http://www.appletvhacks.net/2011/07/19/how-to-jailbreak-apple-tv-2-on-ios-4-3-or-ios-5-beta-with-seas0npass-0-7-7-untethered/
