If you are interested in knowing how Pluto TV works, which it offers for free and how you can watch it through different devices, here you have everything you need to answer your questions and start from scratch.

What is Pluto TV and how it works

Compared to free classic DTT and paid video-on-demand platforms such as Netflix or HBO Max, there are others that have the best of both worlds. That is, you have more channels at your disposal and they are also free: they are the FAST platforms either Free Ad-Supported Television. In Spanish, what can you do? view content with ads.

Pluto TV is included within the FAST platforms, belongs to Paramount and as we will see, its proposal with more than 100 channels is also hybrid in terms of the way it offers its content, mostly like traditional TV, although with some a la carte content. As for the ads, in their favor they are much shorter than traditional advertising.

On Pluto TV you will not find repeated channels to cheat of having a wide catalog and neither are the DTT ones. What predominates are thematic channels., so if you are passionate about something specific, such as western cinema or cooking, you will find a vein.

Most are channels that broadcast live and have programming that you can watch so you don’t miss what interests you. Therefore, you have to pay attention to the schedules. However, since there are so many channels, it is likely that sooner or later you will find one that interests you by zapping. It also has some on-demand content, meaning you can choose what and when you watch something (like you do with Netflix, for example). In summary, Pluto TV is more on-demand channels than on-demand content.

Pluto TV transmits its content onlineso you don’t need an antenna or anything special beyond having a data rate, Wi-Fi or wired connection, since its content goes from its servers over the Internet to your devices.
