Plex Cloud, newly in beta, “lets you use an Amazon cloud locker to store all your movies and shows and stream them from anywhere,” which is a pretty compelling solution for $4.99 a month plus the cost of some storage. But you will have to buy all the content you want to seed the cloud, legally speaking.
Other, not-quite-comparable solutions include Google Drive and Dropbox, and you can read all about the individual implementations here.
