Pluto TV Channels

When you’re streaming a TV show or movie, a line appears below the title and description to indicate how long the show has been streaming.

Users should be aware, however, that there are many ads shown that play when streaming. While this may not be bothersome, it gets frustrating when the same ads are shown regularly (imagine going through an insurance commercial more than 20 times while watching a movie).

Then again, it’s what keeps this free live tv service operating so users may have to accept the frequent advertisements.

Overall, Pluto TV is a solid free live tv service that can is great for live TV and more.

TROYPOINT TIP: Because of Pluto TV’s content limitations and ads, there are plenty of other free APKs that we recommend instead. Check out our TROYPOINT Rapid App Installer where you can install the best apps with the click of a button.
