Pluto TV

Pluto TV which was in March 2019 became the largest TV streaming service provider by Viacom. Pluto TV is a streaming service provider offering free video content for its users. Pluto TV has some similarities with Rabbit TV which has a monthly subscription plan of $24. Pluto TV was first launched in 2014 and since then has grown popular among online streamers.

Pluto TV has numerous channels for you to choose from; you will find channels you are familiar with and channels you never heard of on pluto TV. Pluto TV in March this year, had a user interface overhauling; changing the entire way on how contents are discovered and playback. This overhauling in Pluto TV changed the theme, the way navigation is done; making it easier for you to scroll through movies, sports, entertainment, news comedy, and lots more. 

The overhauling also was extended to the video-on-demand user interface of Pluto TV. The overhauling never changed the traditional television guide of Pluto TV.

Pluto TV has a feature that allows you to highlight and specify channels (your favorite channels as that may be important to you) without having to scroll through over 250 channel list. You can be able to save movies, TV shows and clips to a watch list which you can create on your Pluto TV.

When you click on what you wanted to watch, Pluto TV has a meta-description feature that shows information about what you are about watching (let’s say a movie). Pieces of information you will see via the meta-description feature are trailers, cast crew, or directors.
