“150+ Channels For Free Really is not to be Sniffed at”

Stan G.
2/2/22

I saw an Advert around a Month ago on Digital Television Advertising Pluto Tv. So I downloaded the App On My Smart TV and on my Smart Phone. Honestly as a Customer to a Very well known Satalite Provider. Somedays I am Using Pluto More than I am the Satalite I am Paying through the Roof for. Highlights: Pluto SOS Pluto Classic which mainly Shows Laurel And Hardy 5th Gear if I want my Fix of Car reviews Homes Under The Hammer If I want to watch Property Renovation Hells Kitchen if I need a Fix of Gordon Ramsay I have watched the Odd Movie on there too. Over all It's a Case of If I can not find anything intresting to watch on Satalite then I Look To Pluto. I hope this Service Goes from strength to Strength in time and it is not one of those that slowly Fades into the Abyss. Overall I am pretty impressed with this offering all totally free No Sign up required.

“Horrible”

Pluto Tv is horrible service! When I'm trying to watch a show the show can't go on for like 1 minute with out some stupid add saying "Your Watching Pluto Tv" for like 5 minutes! Honestly, I'd rather pay 200 dollars for Disney Plus or something else then have a Pluto Tv for free! And that's not all! There is never any new episodes! I've watched the same Sam and Cat video over 25 times! Honestly, I recommend avoiding Pluto Tv at ALL COSTS!

If you told me I could get free cable tv (200+ channels) and all I needed to do was have an app and watch commercials, before pluto i would have called you a liar. Pluto is the best free option ive come across for cord cutters, the selection is great, you can watch on demand, it's easy enough to use my parents replaced their cable with it.

Tip for consumers:
Its free

I decided to check out Pluto TV--the reception was 'meh'... the sound goes in and out; navigating the choices is slow and poky. And the whole thing freezes Fios--I have to wait for it to unfreeze to get out of the channel! See pic below for frozen screen image! This channel came with the Fios I'm paying for.

Alot of peeps complain about "all the commercials", well it's a free service, what do we expect here? But why can't you pause or anything else really on the "on demand " feature? Not near as good as Tubi, but again it's free. Update: blindman here found the pause button, so there's that. I gave it a special extra bonus star for that

Just a basic tv platform. Awful. Too many commercials. I stopped the video I was watching and tried to pickup where I left off and had to start at the beginning. Just too basic. There should be a way to see where I stopped and exited. And when I wanted to watch later it should have started where I left off.

Pluto TV started as a decent free streaming service, but things are just ridiculous at this point. I understand they have certain restrictions on how many episodes of shows they have, but why is it that for shows like Steve Wilkos or Dr. Phil, hell even COPS, we get the same circulation of about 40 episodes in a constant loop? Shows that have HUNDREDS of episodes reduced to the same ones day in and day out. Not to mention the commercials. In the last month especially, they have been pumping the Facebook regulations twice, EVERY COMMERCIAL BREAK, no matter the channel you are on. Last but not least, none of the channels match up to their time slots. More often than not, at the end of the episode, you have the blank Pluto waiting screen for the last five minutes because they don't know how to broadcast their catalog. Ridiculous!

There is a very distinct Right Wing/Christian leaning to many of the channels and commercials. They also don't have equality in political commercials, primarily the politician Tiffany Smiley is the ONLY politician with ads on PlutoTv.

It is horrible. Almost 50/50 commercials! Just about the same ones every time. Spend a little money, it just isn't worth it.

Blacks out the conservative news quite frequently while watching and makes it very difficult to find conservative news in the search. Very biased media.

Thought I would give it a try after all it's free tv right? Wrong! Couldn't even make it though a whole movie. The ads don't bother me to much, gotta make money somewhere. What ruined it for me was the movie jumped around after the ads. I don't want to hunt for the right part of the film I'm injoying ever 5 mins only to get hit with another ad. Best part was the timer bar of the movie is at 35 mins and the screen is on the end of the film. Also the film doesn't pause for the ads, they just run over it.
Get what you pay for tho, right?

I like Pluto TV, right up to "Erin from Songbird Coffee and Tea house" 6 times in a row! The commercial is over played and gets to the point of changing the channel, the reference to the president doing something to help small businesses are off base... Please remove the commercial I'm sure Erin has made her money back 10 fold...

Pluto TV is one of the few streaming websites out there that are free, which is nice. Although, I can't bring myself to give it more than two stars being of the annoyance of the ads. I was trying to was a move called "30 Days of Nights." Personally, it's not a very good movie, but I'm not here to review the movie, I'm here to review the streaming service. I can't describe how excruciatingly irritating it is to have an ad pop up every ten minutes. It doesn't even give you a warning. Personally, I'm one of those people that wouldn't mind a warning, because it simply tells me that they care about our experience, and that they would like to tell us ahead of time. Although, the amount of ad usage is unhealthy and not okay. Even during the somewhat good parts of the movie, there's a sudden ad popping up. I would rant more, but that would be wasting my time. In summary, if you don't mind the annoyance of ads popping up on your screen with a free streaming service, then Pluto TV is good for you.
Besides the negatives, there are some positives. The movies and series are good, and are there for people that cannot access streaming services that cost money. I'm the type of person to get irritated easily, so maybe I'm overreacting about the ads, but it is annoying. But anyways, I'm going to watch the second movie despite how crappy the first one was, because I'm curious about what happens next.

We do not ordinarily watch Pluto TV, but Roku got rid of Chef Ramsay Hell's Kitchen so in order to finish the season we were watching we had to tune into Pluto TV while watching One episode all of Hell's Kitchen I saw the my vagina commercial 8 times
I understand that this is how you make your money. But this is very disgusting!

There are way too many bugs for it to be a working app. It never loads tv shows so it's completely useless

Not only are the Commercials repetitive, now we are forced to watch them in SPANISH! If, I wanted to watch anything in Spanish, I would be watching the one hundred other Spanish channels out there! We should not be forced to adapt our preferred language from English to Spanish: it should be the other way around.

It's ok if your looking to see Tom Steyers face every 30 seconds! Way to many ads featuring this IDIOT! We definitely know who paid for this app to stay alive! Just love watching him spew his lies and ignorance EVERY commercial break, not just once but TWICE per commercial break the same ad! Guess we know who else ole Tommy Boy bought, way to go Pluto tv... or should I say TomSteyer TV

I like the app. I like watching the older shows. At home and at work. I work better with TV noise in the background (not actually watching).
The commercials are really no different than others but the plus is there aren't 15 commercials between episodes like METV.
I would like to know if new episodes will be played. I've been watching a month now and it's the same episodes in rotation.

The new Pluto format is not user friendly.
Not able to find categories easily. While scanning will jump back to main page with current show being shown.
Please change it back to pre iOS format.
Thank you.

You see something on FB that looks interesting, you click only to realize it's PukoTV! The video won't work, but you'll get more pop ups than a Viagra convention. Total garbage waste of time, screw PukoTzv!

When you select pluto - you'll have time to run out to the store to get an iced coffee while it loads. Once on the app - a time warp delay back to the 60's while navigating thru to hopefully land at your selected choice could be 3-5 min. All while being subjected to whatever XXXX program that keeps popping on during the process. If you are successful - pretty sure it's not HD. No fast-forward thru commercials - in fact a tape deck from the 50's moves quicker. AND THOSE COMMERCIALS. WOW. STICK A FORK IN MY EYE. Talk about obnoxious and repetitious and never-ending...
AND THEN IT FREEZES... and your kicked off - all to begin again..

This station has a very poor connection. It also keeps playing the same movies month after month and rarely changes them. Most of the movies are either not interesting or B movies. Some aren't even B. Not much as far variety. Totally boring. I'm thinking of deleting the app. To tell you the truth

Pluto is free, that's all that matters but commercials in another language on a english station makes no sense! Who would be watching channels in english that couldn't understand most of it? Why Pluto, why? Stop it, tired of muting these!

I think it's buffering but I could be wrong. This is my first experience with streaming. It's irritating when it happens.

Answer:

The same sad movies over and over. Pluto took off good but quickly turned into a bigger waste of time than cable.
