Great app BUT 2MANYADS
by Jsj2k on 2021/05/13 04:22
I really enjoy this app and the diversity of programming available on it. However, there are far too many ads. The frequency and length of ads seems to be increasing. This is affecting the quality of the programming in my opinion.
WHY PLUTO IS SO GOOD!!
by drippeddadon on 2021/05/13 04:14
Just know it’s a good app and Pluto if I need you to get a movie for me you hav to do it for me taking the time out of my day writing this good review
Keeps freezing when connected to my tv 📺
by chickie468 on 2021/05/13 01:07
I’ve already uninstalled and reinstalled the app and it still freezes when connected to my tv. I have to open my iPhone up for the movie to start playing again. This is really getting ridiculous now. Please help me.

People don’t understand anything
by Nibby1120 on 2021/05/11 21:07
This app is FREE. If they add all the things others want like Fox News and local channels and nick it won’t be free. It would be Hulu live and cost money. Why don’t people understand this? They have to pay 💰 to be able to air that stuff. Where would it come from? YOU paying for it. The app is great as is. If you want Fox News cnn nick local channels get cable or utube or Hulu live and pay $70 a month.
Great app
by Cleveduck on 2021/05/11 19:43
Good reception and giagantic programming.
horrible!!!!!
by amira12: on 2021/05/11 16:11
i don’t like how when you are watching a movie and you rewind or go forward it jumps backwards
Horrible
by Angry kel on 2021/05/11 12:51
This is one of the worst app setups I’ve ever seen. You can’t search anything, there’s no progress bar for commercials, and I went back a few seconds in the movie and it took me back 25min and won’t let me skip back. Just absolute garbage. Hey Tubi instead. Way more options and actually functions properly.
S. Man!

A must download free tv and movies love this app
Need a search function
by outofspoons on 2021/05/11 04:09
I’ve used Pluto regularly for about two years. The performance of the app has improved, but I still find Pluto to be less stable than other apps like Tubi. (Fast forwarding or rewinding within an episode is an exercise in futility, for example, and always has been.) Also, they continue to add content, which I appreciate. But each time they add new shows, the absence of a search function becomes more and more egregious.
Search?
by Jon563478 on 2021/05/11 01:32
Needs a search function. That’s a deal breaker for me. Bye bye Pluto.
annoying
by babsbababsbs on 2021/05/10 22:06
they just REPEAT episodes instead of actually playing different ones. i already watched the same episode of certain shows so many times. it’s annoying.
Pluto tv is great
by aikiboy on 2021/05/10 19:54
I never knew about Pluto. I always wondered why someone didn’t try to put TV on the internet for free. Then I found Pluto! The best thing is that they have the greatest tv line up of all and for free! Gone is my $200.00 a month cable Bill! I’m glad for the commercials and I will buy their products! I love the conservative news channels as well as the westerns! JG Houston, Texas
Immediate Service
by Happy D.K.B. on 2021/05/10 17:37
I’m new to this service, but I’m very impress because a TV show is playing right away.
Same shows run on a loop
by UESfan on 2021/05/10 11:26
Not sure about other channels on PlutoTV, but BBC Home airs the same episodes repeatedly throughout the week. New content is desperately needed.
Pluto Tv - Great Entertainment
by zerumppy on 2021/05/10 10:07
Pluto Tv is a “free” service that always provides great entertainment! There is never a time when you can’t find a good movie or show to watch - it’s great! Scott Turner
Racist Agenda

To racist for me and too many other options that are superior plus what they offer is old or even free on YouTube..... not worth the time or my support
Trouble with on demand

When watching a movie, it will go more than halfway thru and then restart. Makes me hate watching on demand shows and the live tv is all repeats

by Colonel 199 on 2021/05/09 20:57
Constant buffering, repetitious ads, and lack of variety on same shows. How many times do you have to show the new Tom Clancy movie trailer on every channel.

by Samantha0301060409020505 on 2021/05/09 20:14
I would give Pluto TV more stars if it stopped glitching every day and behaved better!!
Great except for one thing
by calix2000 on 2021/05/09 18:26
This relates to the tv app (just haven’t noticed it on the phone app) and that’s the fact that I’m trying to watch one channel because their happens to be a movie or two that I want to see. But that stupid pop up happens every hour or so asking to add to my favorites. How many times do I have to say dismiss before it stops asking. It’s extremely annoying and if I added every time it asked my favorite channel list would every channel. Please fix this. No means no!!!!!
Free!!!
by lchandler87 on 2021/05/09 16:02
I like the fact that I don’t have to pay for TV un-like other apps. It’s nice to finally have free tv a long as I have a data connection. Wish we could have a dvr for the times that I don’t, and having local channels would be awesome. I’d pay for those features. Just saying.
No search option
by Bulguard on 2021/05/09 15:33
The app has no search option, it has good content if you can find it. It starts to play live content without being asked, kinda of annoying there. The browse feature freezes causing me to restart the app. When I can find what I’m looking for and get it started I enjoy the programming
Search bar
by i know what i want to watch on 2021/05/09 10:17
Why can’t I search for what I want to watch
Lots of choices . No search feature?
by Ent_Bear on 2021/05/09 06:24
Unless I missed it there is no search bar so finding a specific movie is lots of needless scrolling

Waste of time
by Mrufka on 2021/05/09 04:53
The same ads are playing at list 3 times in a row and on top of that your movie keep restarting for beginning at random points😳 so you have to start watching it again, or if you remember where it cut you off, navigate there and of course another set of ads will play before it returns to the movie. Then you realize it’s not where you left off so you skip more and more ads! This is the worst app ever! Never again! Do yourself a favor and pay $3 to rent the movie you want to watch without interruption instead of spending here 4 hours on free movie with ads 👍
Wow, no search functionality?
by BinkyTom on 2021/05/08 23:34
Can’t search? This app is not ready for primetime.
Search bar
by Meatyandbiddy on 2021/05/08 23:02
Great app! They have a wide range of free movies; however I can’t find a search bar on the mobile app. They should really add one. It would go from being a great app to a fantastic app!
Search Bar

It’s cool that it’s all free, but would love to see a search bar to easily get to what I want.

Great Free Tv
by Skyboy790 on 2021/05/08 17:14
Pluto Tv has a great selection of free programming to steam and watch. No sign in or credit card required (as of the time of this review). Highly recommend.
Holy f&@king ads!

Free TV BUT…
by Thaumaturgist on 2021/05/08 09:20
It’s free and the price you pay is commercials,I’m ok with that, BUT the app lacks the ability to search for the shows you want, that means you must browse by category and the shows are not alphabetical. It’s like going to blockbuster and you must look at each dvd every time. WHAT’S VERY BAD IS THAT THE APP CRASHES FREQUENTLY AND YOU MUST RESTART THE SHOW. WORSE, AS YOU FAST FORWARD YOU MUST WATCH BLOCKS IF COMMERCIALS BEFORE YOU GET TO THE POINT WHERE THE APP CRASHED. For a 2 hour movie, if commercials are every 15-30 minutes and you were at the last 10 minutes you must watch another 14± commercials (14 minutes) you had to do this before. It wouldn’t surprise me if that was part of their revenue plan. App crashes generate revenue

by wsvehklfb on 2021/05/07 21:59
This app is ok it has some good movies and shows but it’s the navigation that bothers me I can’t search up anything I have to keep scrolling until I find it which is really irritating and also it feels like they only put the same show every single time but overall I think you should get this app but I recommend the company that made this to add a search bar.
Crashes. Frequently
by rstr124 on 2021/05/07 14:07
Annoying that I can’t make it through a movie. The app crashes and sends me back to the beginning of the movie. I gave up after three tries. At the very least they should find a way to pick up where you left off.
Pluto TV
by b DSc u on 2021/05/07 08:21
Way too many commercials. Constantly stalls. Pausing & restarting a movie is like pulling teeth. No direct e-mail address for technical support. Knowledgebase is useless.

Ten Minutes of Program, 20 of Ads
by Zippy Tu Yu on 2021/05/06 21:58
New post- If you want to watch 7-8 minutes of ads and 1.5 minutes of program, this is the app for you. Just tried to watch another DABL program, and it cuts off mid word to go to commercialS, I’ve been timing these and it’s gotten to the point to not watching this Pluto App at all. Original post- AND - I’ve about had it! I’ve been timing the ads and the programs. Watching a program and it will go to ads in the middle of a word, and then resume after you KNOW the program was cut when it was restarted and often right at what would have been the end of the story/program. ABSOLUTELY THE WORST in Programming. BTW- DABL is the worst offender, the others channels are almost just as bad. I think third graders could do a better job. The commercials are offensive and repeat and loop the repeat every five minutes. Just AWEFUL 😖.
Good for me.

The proposal is amazing, but the app is lame
by jeny18091990 on 2021/05/05 19:12
I usually don’t rate apps, but I really hope the developers see this, because their content is great, a bunch of classic movies, really great! But the app is really hard to navigate, the interface is pretty bad and the live TV keeps playing even when you close it - which makes it very hard to search other titles. So, unless you know what you are looking for there, you will probably give up looking for something.
Great app!

Bugs, stalls and messes
by 873926639 on 2021/05/04 19:12
Due to bad programming, the app often stalls while it (probably) is loading up the next batch of commercials. Often the in-demand tv shows restart on their own before they are finished. When you try to move the timing bar back to where it was, it ignores you and throws on another commercial. When you turn the app on its side it starts a new batch of commercials. Lots of the TV shows don’t work at all or are out of order so the story lines jump back and forth as you go through a season. This app is programmed by amateurs and apparently there isn’t a seasoned pro in the whole engineering dept. Lastly, you can’t contact the company at all and tell them about the bugs. If they knew what they were doing, maybe these issues wouldn’t exist. Of course, maybe they would and judging by the above issues, it seems the company doesn’t care to make the app work right.
TV on the go
by Jay.Sant on 2021/05/04 12:28
I very much love Pluto. Without cable subscription you can watch shows, programs, movies and news on the go. I use it on my iPhone and it’s very convenient when your in a hotel with lousy cable service and only get certain channels because of poor signal or service. Go with Pluto.
No search bar

I really enjoy finding shows to watch on my iPad with my earbuds on while my husband sleeps. I do wonder why they have a channel devoted to WINGS but they only show a few episodes from the first couple of seasons. The show was on for years, why not show them in sequence and all of them?
Cannot cast

Gut wrenching experience
by Baby2011(2) on 2021/05/03 18:25
Commercials every couple minutes and constant crashes. Then when it does crash, it forces more commercials just trying to find the spot where you were. I can’t believe it got past Apple’s qa

by EndymionNomad on 2021/05/02 14:26
- Immediately starts playing live tv & can’t dismiss while browsing - No search capability (table stakes) - Won’t keep you signed into the app, even during the same session The UX is half baked on this. Deleted same day.

Only plus is no sign-in necessary
by LutherianSteel on 2021/05/02 07:08
This app is garbage. The only reason I downloaded it was because it’s the only platform that offered a specific movie I wanted to watch for free. This turned out to be impossible, though, because the app has no search function. Beyond that, very simple functions like scrolling hardly work. The only reason I think the app has any merit at all is because you don’t need to create an account and give away personal data just to use it.
Great!!
by tasha77 on 2021/05/02 05:58
I love this app!! It is great being able to watch such classics and be transported back in time. I always smile when using the app because it brings back great memories as I watch shows that meant a lot to me. I am so thankful for this amazing free app, which I would recommend to everyone!!

App crashes too much
by NonicknameH on 2021/05/01 16:50
Every time I go to watch the app in the middle of me watching a show or movie the app crashes or buffers. This seems to be an ongoing problem even when the app is updated it doesn’t help because it does the same thing. Can you please fix this problem.
Not so hot
by PHOTOlink on 2021/05/01 00:07
The controls to move forward and back are difficult to use. The slider and 10 ahead and back buttons are too small and don’t work well at all. Good selection but controls are poorly operating.

by 1stCeye on 2019/05/05 21:19
This has to be the best free TV anywhere! There is something for EVERYONE TO WATCH! I am a train hobbyist. I was shocked when checking out my new TV Stations to discover a channel (SLOWLY) that takes me on a train ride through different countries...this month has been really interesting...NORWAY by train..they change the seasons as we travel along so I have seen snow covered mountains, lowlands, and fjords then seconds later the scene changes to summer with trees and plants...what a treat to see this country while sitting in my armchair/bed! There are movies galore! All the different types of MUSIC and newly added MTV....SPORTS, ACTION FILM, TV SERIES, GAME SHOWS FROM THE 70’s when they were golden....it’s free, people! Free.....support is immediate and friendly. My suggestions were acknowledged and to my delight implemented....now that’s a great TV STATION.... late at night, I relax, watching The Pet channel/ We 💛Pets....dogs, cats, birds, Turtles....all wonderful....And a channel devoted to funny cat antics...I guarantee you will laugh...some nights I scroll through just for fun...and always there is something new to catch my attention! “Try it——you’ll like it”.....😄😄😄😄😄🙋🏻‍♀️
Same shows, same commercials
by Burghguy1 on 2020/08/15 12:40
I thought this was great at first until I really started to watch. It's all the same shows just on a loop. I can't count the number of times I've seen the same episodes and the same movies. I've actually found myself watching less frequently and I have several different channels saved as favorites but it's all the same over and over again. The commercials for the channels show better movies than what is actually played. When's the last time you showed Red Dawn? I've never seen it. But I've seen Chopping Mall about every other day. I wish you actually played the movies you show in the commercials. But the main reason I've been watching less is the commercials. Talk about a lack of variety. For the love of God get some different commercials. The same ones played every commercial break over and over before I just turn it off. How many times do I have to see the same political ads, the same Siesta Key ad, "Thank about what I saw!" or the Hills"I want to forgive you and I want to forget you." The repetition is enough to drive you crazy. The same ads played over and over again on every channel. If you offered an ad free version for a few bucks I'd almost be willing to pay for it. Almost. That doesn't solve the problem of showing the same episodes and movies until I can recite them. Miss a movie? Don't worry. It will be on again tomorrow or even the same day on a different channel. And the next day and the next day.
Overall is good, however is uncomfortable to use
by kiwi_Cake on 2020/07/04 21:36
I came to this app only for the anime and have found one that I liked a lot (and couldn't seem to find anywhere else!) and it’s the only reason I continued to use this app. The fact that this app is completely free is amazing. However, if you aren’t a very patient person then this app isn’t for you. There are a total of three ads, each 30 seconds long at least (they are unskippable) showing up together 3 times throughout a single episode. That’s 4:30 seconds worth of ads per episode. Yeah, that’s a lot. Another issue I have with this app is the programming of it. Seriously, hire some real programmers that actually know how to make apps. Not only is the app glitchy by itself, the “forwards” and “backwards” buttons don’t even work! You could press on them forever but they wouldn’t move the episode even a second forward or backward. If you by any chance had had to unfortunately miss some part of the video then fear not: all you have to do is replay the episode from the very beginning and watch all the ads again with it (I know that sounds very exciting indeed!) . So to summarize it all: don’t use this app if you’re impatient and don’t use this app if you get distracted easily. That’s all from me. Hope the devs will fix the app someday!
I just downloaded this because of Instagram ads
by Ayden Girl on 2020/06/24 14:20
Hey I just downloaded this app because of the ad on Instagram so I wanted to see what it was like. Overall I like the content there is a wide variety of shows and movies and they have old shows like fear factor that aren’t available anywhere else but a lot of the shows and movies are available through regular cable which is nice I guess if you don’t have cable. I think you guys should change the layout of the app it’s very weirdly laid out and then when I was looking for movies and tv shows there is no search bar so the only way to look up movies and tv shows is via genre which I found very tedious and annoying because I wanted to see if you had specific movies and or tv shows like wipe out but I can’t look it up the second problem I had was when you open the app it takes you directly to the live tv but when I want to watch movies and or a different tv show on demand the live tv noises are still in the background while I am looking while xfinity or any other app usually stops the live show while you are looking for another one. Sorry for being too critical but this is a review it is a pretty good app it just needs a lot of app adjustments just to make it better.
The Best App!
by LovingThe Lord! on 2021/02/19 03:35
I don’t write reviews. In fact, this is the first review I’ve written for an App. I’ve had & been watching Pluto for so long, I can’t remember not having it. It’s one of my most used app’s on my iPad. Pluto is so good I’m thinking about shutting off my cable television. Pluto has pretty much anything one could ask for & more. They are constantly adding new channels. They have so many different categories of entertainment, music, movies both new & old. You can watch some regular television stations, if you want. There are stations for old television shows. Channels for every kind of music. But, for me, it’s everything that I haven’t mentioned that I love about Pluto. There is so much here to watch & listen to that is uniquely their own, things you would not see or here anywhere. This app cannot be put into a category I’ve never had a problem with the app, no bugs or issues. Pluto is more than just another app, it is an Experience. It’s obvious I love Pluto. The best & most difficult thing to believe is it is free! Pluto is a treasure & it’s diversity is incredible.
Horror fans we are back in!
by Rosymenu on 2018/05/30 22:52
If you are one of those horror fans that was disappointed to see the chiller channel go without a second thought to us horror fans, then give Pluto tv a try! They have loads of great channels and a 24/7 horror movie channel that shows nothing but a great selection or horror related movies and shows, plus they are constantly adding new channels. I was convinced to give this app a try and I’m glad I did! It’s very easy to navigate and the quality is good. The only draw back I’m having is sometimes, out of nowhere, there is like a quick second cut out or pause, would be a better word, and whatever I’m watching will restart with a second delay or a second forward of what I’m watching, if that makes any sense, not too big of a deal, could be WiFi connection but if Others are experiencing this could be something within the app? Not complaining much after all it’s free and I’m pretty happy with it and in my opinion it’s the best streaming tv app out there!
The best, but there’s room for improvements.
by galloitaliano27 on 2020/03/09 20:57
Simply put: PlutoTV is, without a doubt, the best free Live TV app in any platform. Hands down. Although I praise the creators for their incredible achievement, I think there is plenty of room for improvement. For instance, I would suggest to expand the time frame in the guide. As it stands now it is way too limited, if we check the guide to see what’s next we’re only allow to see two or three titles, at times just one. It is unfortunate cause so many good movies and shows go unnoticed due to a lack of awareness. If you could sort it out PlutoTV would take a massive step in the right direction. Secondly, the Spanish content is too limited as well. No saying it isn't good, but I think more movies and documentaries should be added. The Hispanic community thrives for good AND exciting programming, we are more than just Novelas and Soccer. We love Hollywood movies too. And so, please gives us great content DUBBED IN SPANISH, please. Oh and before I forget, the Películas en español on the On Demand section should have way more programming too! There are movies on Latino Live TV that isn’t available On Demand!! Fix this please..! And lastly, apparently switching channels in the TV app is currently unavailable. Any updates coming soon? I can live with the third point, but I would immensely appreciate if the first and second points are addressed in future updates. Thanks you so, so much for this APP!!
Some good some bad
by Baldie1946 on 2021/01/10 18:06
Gee whiz.......STILL waiting for “customer support” to get back to me on the few simple questions I mentioned below. It’s been 2 weeks now? Think their lousy “support” practices is their weakest link? At this rate a one star rating could be generously too high. Yeah...good shows and movies.......BUT.....WHY CAN’T THEY MAKE A SEARCH BUTTON? Want to find a movie? Well search through ALL categories and you may find it! I watched a bit of a few movies. They were bad. So I stopped watching, removed it from my watch list.....and there it sits in “Continue Watching” list. I DONT WANT TO KEEP WATCHING IT! There is no button to remove it from that list. Watch 50 movies.....will be 50 movies sitting in the list. So you have to see the movie to it’s end and be sure it is off your watch list or something else I did and it finally goes away. But a “Remove from continue watching” button would be great. Finally.....customer service? “Contact Us?” Ha! They send you the cut and paste response of how they will get right on this for me and my wishes are important to them.......then they never get back to you. NETFLIX THEY ARE NOT......just wannabes. For this, they get a one star rating because I can’t give a half star rating.
Ok but not great.
by BintegratedTech on 2018/12/11 18:01
I signed up on the computer using google but the app does not have a login with google option so I had to setup another account using just email. Favorites in the app or in the web browser do not stay as favorites. No favorite recall menu. Video and audio glitches all the time. Commercials are not synced with shows and cuts off important or suspenseful parts. I use the web version and iOS app version and have the issue on all 3 of my devices, iPhone, iPad, and Windows Laptop using Google Chrome. I love the app but the MANY technical issues are almost not worth it. I am not sure how old this app is but live streaming has been down to a science for many years but these guys don't seem to even see that bar. Have been using it on LTE and Fiber backed WiFi at over 50Mbps down 30Mbps up both scenarios with the exact same issues. The iOS app version also appears to reset itself mid stream in an attempt to catch up but then skips parts of the show or will back track to a part that has already been shown and then skip forward again and cut more stuff out. The whole Pluto TV service needs work. A lot of work.
Pluto Tv
by Grifftrain on 2020/01/05 19:31
It’s a great app. The one complaint I have would be lots of commercials interrupting the shows. But I understand the need for them. There are many, many commercial breaks. Another thing I would like to see is being able for me to broadcast to my tv. I understand it’s possible in some cases, but trying to stream to my smart tv doesn’t work. It could be my tv is to old. I know it sounds like I listed a lot of complaints, but for a free streaming service, this is a great app with many great channels. Rifftrax, mst3k, music channels, news, comedy stand up, drama shows and movies, Pluto tv has it all. For those looking to “cut the cable tv cord” this is a great option ***update**** my cable tv service now provides a Pluto tv app. So now I can watch Pluto on my big screen tv. It really is a good app with nice variety. Only complaint is the same as before. Many commercials. But it’s enough content to satisfy most any viewer
An 80’s music video channel
by Shanlie on 2021/02/19 15:48
I love the concept of the "what’s old is new" but innovated. Curated content but in categories. If you’re tired of searching for something to watch but know at least what you're in the mood for...you know you want to watch a 90s movie or a horror movie or whatever genre it has its own channel within Pluto TV. Everything is pre-scheduled and curated so you just find your niche and settle in. It’s commercial driven but not invasive at the very least. [*The 80s Vevo side scroll channel SOLD ME! My new favorite "radio station" .... it’s music videos from the 80’s more or less. I literally put it on and go about my life yet inevitably end up stopping and watching for an hour. Blasts from the past so fresh it made me feel happy i found PlutoTV. Heard from a tv segment on the radio... and plugged it in via Apple TV. I’m a music fan so it suits me just solely in this one feature. Hidden gem. ]
Awesome content
by VirginiaHouse on 2021/01/27 02:51
I have had Pluto tv for some while now and I have always loved it for content and some of my fave wedding shows like David Tutera’s My Fair Wedding and Amazing wedding cakes and also the home and diy lineup on design network and front door are amazing (some of the hgtv ones are my fave). But for a long time now my fave older showers featuring my favorite designer of all time Sarah Richardson has not been able to be found anywhere but in a miracle -Y’all have her and I am so thankful and love it and all her shows I just seen them yesterday and am watching right now just wanted to shoot this review in during commercials, I hope y’all get all her shows Room Service, Design Inc, Sarah 101, Sarah’s House and Sarah’s Cottage and even Sarah off the grid and Sarah sees Potential, I mean there is no design challenge to hard for her and Tommy! So Thank Thank Thank You Pluto Tv and abl network!!! Y’all are great
SOTG (Suggestions On The Go)
by Frogs107 on 2019/06/30 16:34
I had had channels for my pets like The Pet Collective and the Western Channels but they’re gone now and we have a new guide to go by and can’t set up tv for our animals? That’s BS. You, as a developer, should have KEPT the channels that both people and animals found cute and antiqued because it would have kept a lot of people at bay. Also, I have some suggestions, you should try and broker a deal with some kid friendly channels so that children from the ages of ten and under can watch too. Along with that goes for brokering for Animal Planet (cute but sad and keeps kids from abandoning their pets), Disney Jr/Nick Jr (children’s channels), History plus Military History(kind of the same channels but Military History is the throwback of History Channel for MILITARY), and some more movies that are not rated R like Big Hero 6, Hachikō, Max (Marine. Hero. Friend.), and some other family related ones. You guys really need this or Pluto TV would not be free.
Love this app
by Chilliefloyd34 on 2019/09/21 02:57
Dear Pluto tv owners Thank you for the updates that you did for some of the channels that I asks for But Is there way that you can scream Martin Lawrence tv show and the Wayne’s brother to come on BET because On regular TV it comes on channel Bet and can you guys get lifetimeCan you guys work on it life time could be its own channel for Pluto tv can you guys update the news channel can you guys update Sports channelbasketball and baseball and football a lot of the shows is old on Pluto tv but I like but if you do so more updateing on the channels it will bring more people to your AppAnd I love the church channel on here thank And I think you guys should have more movies on you guys movie listingYou guys should make it like Netflix just imagine if you guys do thisYou guys would be a large frenzies for thank for what you are going to do and Jesus nAme we amen my is Anthony
How To Restart Episodes From The Beginning ..?!!??
by The.Nick.Name on 2019/08/21 12:16
I have been constantly having this same problem from the beginning which i downloaded this App over a year ago. I can’t restart episodes in the Free Tv and Movies Section. Even if the episode ends and runs all the way it will not restart. All it has is 15 second rewind and 15 second forwarding which is also not working properly since your newest update. It’s not possible to restart a full episode or pull back with the status bar. Most episodes I am unable to watch over again. There seems to be either an update issue or a function issue because this particular issue has never had a proper function. PLEASE HELP ! Your App is awesome but this particular issue and function problem is very problematic. I am using an Apple iPad with the latest ios software. I also could find where to email you my issue so unfortunately I had to write you in the review section. Thank you
Cops TV Show is playing same episodes every day!!!!!
by Baby21Girlx on 2020/03/28 00:26
I just absolutely love this app! I use it everyday! & I am so happy you guys have now added cops.... but this past week, you guys are playing the exact same episodes every day & night around the exact same times.... I absolutely love this show... but can you please add more episodes & seasons because the exact same shows are playing every day & night!!! Please!!!!! Minus that, I do love this app. It’s my favorite app & I use it everyday. Please added more seasons & episodes because there’s no point of watching it every day when the same episodes are coming on. It’s been like this this past week, I don’t know if it’s been like this from the start, I just started watching it as soon as I got an email from you guys saying you just added the show!
GREAT FREE TV!
by NeverForgetTheirSacrifice on 2020/01/01 15:17
My husband and I really enjoy PLUTO! It is really now our go-to media stream. We both enjoy the history and military channels as they show programming we have never seen on other media TV. We also enjoy the British programming very much and are thrilled that PLUTO has some....only wish they could add some more current British shows, too. Maybe in the future we hope! I would highly recommend others to download the PLUTO app on all your devices. FYI: The only small annoyance/negative comment we have is the cutting to commercials during scenes. We don’t understand why this is done. Can’t PLUTO wait to the end of a scene or, in some cases, in the middle of a sentence, before jumping to commercial breaks? Annoying item that we would think could be easily remedied and not frustrate viewership.
Don’t Pause or You Can’t Restart From Same Soot.
by Snacksalot on 2021/04/07 11:03
There’s no way to report errors or contact customer service so I have to leave the issue on here. Don’t Pause or You Can’t Restart From Same Spot w/ Chromecast. I’ve been 50 minutes into a movie that I can’t restart from the same spot if I want to use Chromecast. I can watch on phone but as soon as I cast it, it goes back to the beginning. You can’t manually move the counter. I tried tapping the skip 15 seconds a whole lot to get to get 50 minutes, but you get stuck at the commercial breaks. 3 times I attempted on 3 different days, but I give up. It takes so long to get to 24 minutes it’s just not worth my time. I started something else, paused, it dropped from Chromecast and guess what, couldn’t start from spot and had to restart from beginning and couldn’t get back to my spot. I am just going to use something else. No response from developer to reviews on the App Store tell the store of their Customer Service focus - there is none.
Incredible
by Jlfuller3 on 2019/08/22 14:07
This is incredible for free tv! I wasn’t expecting much because it was free and free is never that promising but I am thrilled to have been proven wrong. There are some actual titles on here and a good amount to choose from for being free. I imagine once more people use this app, the more and better channels could be provided in the future. I also thought that it would be nice to add a sleep timer in the app and possibly a comments section for fun in the free movies + tv section. I noticed one issue when attempting to rewind show after an ad has played, I can’t rewind past it. The ad played in the middle on a sentence so I was like “no big deal I can just rewind it after the ad is finished but it just rewinds back into the ad and you can’t use playback controls during an ad.
Love and loss
by CaptMerika2001 on 2020/04/29 21:42
My wife and I love this app. Being cord cutters it reminds us of the way TV used to be. I like the channel surfing and to a degree commercial breaks in the shows. Content is enjoyable. I like Fail Army, she enjoys The Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders, and we both can’t wait till 8:00 each evening for some Supermarket Sweep. What we have lost here is some of the picture. Buzzer channel looses the Letter Box format for a zoom to 16:9 that scalps some of the folks on the screen. We have noticed that other channels, we’re looking at you American Gladiators, still keep the proper aspect ratio for the way which it was filmed. I’m requesting that the Letter Box format returns to shows that need it. Do that and you get your fifth star PlutoTV! Update: Buzzer is now in Letter Box format. True to my word this is now a Five Star App!
The good, the bad and the ugly
by pitagreen on 2020/01/12 22:37
The good: -lots of old cartoons you won’t find on cabletv -lots of other old shows cabletv won’t bother showing anymore -there is old Logo. this is the Logo I want! (Minus showing CYBILL which reminds me of the new Logo lineup which isn’t great.) -foreign shows (well kid shows) -no edited scenes The bad: -Wish there was a favorite feature on firetv. Hell the one on the app on the iPhone is basically useless. Hurry it up already and fix this feature. I’m sick of scrolling through all these channels just to get through my favorites. It’s a pain moving back and forth 24 hours to get through my favorites (and this is an issue they haven’t fixed in a year) -I need a foreign movie channel. The ugly: -Nickelodeon. I can understand Disney not being here but why Nick? Why all the multiple channels for them? Are they really that desperate because nobody watches them anymore? Where is CN? Just give me CN when it was amazing (which was last decade ago...) -the ads. Just show fewer ads please. You’re becoming like cable t.v. -lots of godawful low budget 3D animation movies -Needs more variety of shows and movies. Which is another issue cable t.v. faces as well. I just hope there will be quick upgrades if not then I’ll probably be too immune to the negative aspects of Pluto to even care about upgrades or I’ll just become too tired and just move on to a similar app. Happy reading!
I just turned into a streamer last Tuesday
by 1@#$&7 on 2021/02/08 22:56
And I love this channel. We always watched live PD even reruns, I love Pluto it’s got a lot of shows covering the law and real life crime shows like court tv that I am watching right now..keep up the good work.. I hope that you continue adding real life shows that are not covering rich sisters and boyfriend’s and shopping..even if you have shows that are not current..we have something to watch that doesn’t cost us, because we are seniors and are trying to live on a budget..maybe you will continue doing shows that the older people can enjoy and continue with cop shows. My brother was a police officer and most people don’t realize how much they struggled to keep all of us safe..please continue the good work..
What did you expect?
by Camtj on 2019/03/20 01:49
It’s free. Simple as that. So, why am I not giving it five stars? For a few reasons. 1. This is the biggest problem in my opinion. Bad shows, I get it that you are free and all, but seriously? The ASYLUM!? With such horrible movies as trolland, Atlantic rim, and more why would they even be allowed on this? Have some quality control. Come on! Anime is really the only stuff that you can get licensed that isn’t A) trash or B) really old or C) reality TV 2. No search feature. I should be able to search stuff on demand, an inconvenience yes, but still a problem. Same with the channels. I should be able to type in a channel name or number and be taken to it. 3. The ads are all wrong. Say I am watching something on demand and something funny happened right before an ad plays. I want to rewind and it makes sense that after the ad plays, I should be able to rewind, right? WRONG. The ad is a PART of the episode or movie and controls can’t be used during ads so I can’t rewind it! Even after the ad is done, it is still there, a part of the episode/movie, if I rewind, I have to somehow get past an ad when I can’t due to it not allowing controls! 4) No familiar channels. No local news, no fox news, no cartoon network, nickelodeon, Disney XD or even Disney channel! This app needs to be better. It doesn’t even have boomerang which would be great!
It’s alright, I guess..
by Oxi Clean Stain Detergent on 2019/07/23 02:26
So, I guess the idea is that you can watch shows on the app without paying. The thing is, why isn’t there a search button? I was wondering if there was a button where I could search for certain TV Shows but I couldn’t find any. All I did was scroll around for 20 minutes around the Free Movies + TV tab, looking for Hotel Hell and The Office from the sitcom section because I don’t know how to.. exactly work it. I just need a search button where I could just search shows and stuff without the need to look around for Ninja Warrior and Wipeout unless it’s just showing me what’s playing at the moment. Overall, there are shows you can watch even though I don’t find anything that uh particularly catches my eye besides Adaption.. hadn’t watched it yet but it seems and looks good because it looks interesting and it’s at the comedy section.
Love it! Truly free and awesome
by Frowny Car on 2020/01/14 07:21
I have used Pluto for a good while now and I have been very happy with it. I haven’t had any technical issues or issues with streaming. I use Visible carrier and zero issues for me so anyone with a decent carrier should have no problems at all. I love the variety of shows.. there’s really something for just about any one. We like to watch This Old House and The Addams family as a family and my hubby likes to watch Bevis and Butthead, my kids like the cartoons and the cat channel, I like the reality shows and old classic shows I grew up watching. We watch on tv and on my phone. Zero complaints and only stars from me for this awesome tv app. Hope it’s around for many years to come. I also appreciate the news is available on here too.
Good Service, Not My Thing
by DDewDropsS on 2020/04/05 03:11
It’s a pretty good service, but there are some things that I don’t like about it. You can’t pause the live tv or rewind or ANYTHING like that. You also can’t search for shows on On Demand. So it’s basically hunting through the genres for the one show you want to watch. It has a lot of shows but not a lot of variety in them. It’s basically just a free cable service, but not as good. It’s not really my thing. But for people who would want to watch cable tv anywhere, go for it (it’s a little glitchy tho.) I don’t really enjoy the types of shows they have. But again, although I probably won’t use this app, it’s a good free service for people who want to watch live tv with decent variety (I gave it 4 stars because it’s a decent app even though I don’t like it)
Free tv
by The lair on 2020/09/19 07:49
It’s kind of like watching tv you pay for. There is a similar menu. You switch from channel to channel. Lots of the programs run several in a row, which is a lot better in you watch tv sporadically; you find something you l8ke and there are several episodes run in a row! The variety of programming is very nice! I tell my friends to watch it and they find shows they like even if their taste is different than mind. It has commercials . However, they are brief. The commercials are family items mostLy. So that works for most people. The commercials breaks aren't long. Many are repeated, but that’s fine because they are brief. I’d like to see more programs and original series! So I hope that it will grow.
BEST TV APP EVER! And it’s FREE!!!
by Amos20111 on 2019/12/24 14:39
I’m shocked no one knows about this app yet. I only found it in like FALL 2019. Wish it were advertised somewhere so I could have downloaded it sooner. Not in top 200 apps? Not on every single millennials phone yet? Why? IDK! But I’m glad I found it and now I’ll tell all my friends about it. It’s FREE, dark mode by default, and changing the channel is instant. No annoying pop up ads, and I actually like the commercials, feels like home. It has all the major new channels 24/7 so I don’t have to download all the new stations’ apps. Tom Ryan is a genius, he’s like the Steve Jobs of tv apps. Now if only Pluto TV can install a “return” button so I can flashback to the last channel I was watching, that would put the cherry on top of this birthday cake of an app.
Live channels in Foreground on Mobile
by ZTSylvestre on 2021/03/08 02:09
First off I will start by saying that I really appreciate this free all so much, thank you. I’m using an iPhone 11 and sometimes when I minimize the Pluto app while watching a Live Channel the window will close down to one corner of my screen and continue to play the Live Channel while I continue to navigate my phone in my web browser and other apps. Sometimes it just closes the Pluto app altogether. I can’t figure out what the deciding factor is, but this feature is really amazing! I would really love to be able to do this consistently! Regardless, thank you so much for such a wonderfully simple and easy to navigate, completely free streaming service! It’s amazing!
Getting worse
by redrok84 on 2020/03/01 06:04
The content is fine, but the app (really on any platform (iOS, Roku, etc) is becoming unusable. The constant changes to the “look” and adding/subtracting channels is frustrating — all while this is happening the actual usability of the app is not improving — my biggest issue is the channel favoriting is still not working and has never even been an option on some of our devices — we would 100% use this service more and have it on more devices (thus increasing your ad revenue) if I could just hide channels that my kids (all under 10) don’t need to be accidentally seeing (ie. Eye Candy Channel, Horror Movies, Tosh.0, amongst others). I’m not saying the channels need to be removed, but I should be able to hide them or you need to add parental controls and profiles. Either way, still won’t be using the app anywhere except my phone until it’s fixed and will keep using Xumo on the other devices (as it does allow hiding channels)
The Good and The Bad
by abd410 on 2021/03/06 01:36
For a free app maybe we shouldn’t ask for much. I’m still finding things to get excited about. 80’s music videos? Yes please! Three’s Company and campy horror movies you forgot existed, that TLC series you’re 5 years behind on, all there. I love the content. BUT..... How is there no search option? Please add a search option! My biggest pet peeve with this app is the continuation, more specifically the lack of. If you’re watching an episode of a series, when the episode is over it jumps to BET Live instead of going to the next episode. You have to back out to the home page, switch back to On Demand, and find the next episode. Really irritating and I don’t use it much for this reason. I watch a sitcom episode during my lunch break now and that’s about it because I get tired of the aggravation involved.
Up Date Review
by FritzBruce1 on 2020/05/27 06:07
I was perfectly happy with my Pluto TV except for the plethora of commercials but what do you expect . Until I hit the update button for some insane reason, and my screen divided in half and my viewing picture became 1/4 of what it used to be and it can’t be expanded ! I can never make the menu go away, like basically introduce some sort of virus into my iPad which they say can’t be done but who knows I can’t I cannot reboot in the old mode and it and I am getting sick of dealing with it . Before I would have given 4 to 4 1/2 stars , and now it’s like negative one star I am so disappointed especially since I can’t watch my NASA streaming television anymore with the historic launch coming up tomorrow .I’m a senior I am disabled and my vision is going I am so disappointed .!, sincerely ,David
Constant Buffering
by whatelseis there on 2019/01/24 03:38
I will say I love Pluto tv, but it’s starting to get annoying, I mostly watch it on my tablet, and one of my favorite channels is buzzer 514, it constantly buffers and on occasion it freezes up or just freezes the picture then it doesn’t pick up where it left off.. it does this just about every 3-5 seconds, I went into the App Store to see if it needed to be updated but it does not need updating.. but when I go into my phone app it needed an update.. wish you could fix this problem.. also it says that buzzer is 24/7 game shows and it is NOT 24/7 game shows!!!!!! And there is no way of contacting support to discuss this problem.. wish there was an easier way of contacting you instead of leaving a negative review.. as I watch it in my tablet right now it just went from one game show to another and now it’s buffering this is getting very annoying!!!!! PLEASE FIX THIS PROBLEM AND I WILL GIVE A BETTER STAR RATING!!!! Thank You!!!!
Pluto TV is AMAZING!! 🤩
by TimmoJulz on 2021/02/05 09:37
When I first tried PlutoTV, I loved everything about it. The design interface, the amount of ads wasn’t overbearing & it was an altogether better experience than Spectrum offered. So much so that I ditched them as my TV provider. There was one caveat, however. I noticed that some of the commercials being ran were racially insensitive, politically biased against Democrats, supported the worst leader in American history (Traitor Trump), perpetuated the election fraud “Big Lie” that led to domestic Terrorists’ siege on our nation’s Capitol & spread hateful disinformation about the Black Lives Matter movement. For this, I initially gave PlutoTV a 1-star review & recommended people to avoid the app. THEY LISTENED & THEY’VE CHANGED!!! They have changed for the better! They actually listened to the input of their viewing public & chose to move in a direction suitable for everyone. No alienation. Zero intolerance. Nothing but one AMAZING app that anyone who loves TV can be proud to use without fear of discrimination from advertising groups of inequality. It is one of my FAVORITE apps &, IMO, honestly one of THE BEST apps EVER on the App Store. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR & SUPPORT THIS APP! What are you waiting for? GET IT!!! 😎
A great variety of channels! A lot of nostalgia too
by aquariusxx on 2020/01/05 20:11
I love Pluto tv. I don’t even remember where i heard of it but once i downloaded i was instantly pleased. They have a bunch of channels with show from the 90s & early 2000s. I find myself watching the shows mostly from the early 2000s. For example: the beginning seasons of mtv cribs, the old nickelodeon cartoons, Laguna beach, & many more. Having these channels with Pluto tv is a great addition. They have new content as well. I don’t use it as my everyday tv but i do use it enough that i would highly recommend it! I almost never have trouble with this app. Occasionally i have a buffering issue even when my internet is up to speed but after maybe 2 times it clears up on its own.
GET MORE CLASSIC TV SHOWS!!!
by FreddieRey on 2020/07/23 03:36
I almost love this app , I want to love it, but there’s too much reality crap content. I wish they had a lot more reruns from the 1950’s - 1970’s and old movies like Turner classic types. Although I like Drag Race and antiques roadshow UK is brilliant!! They had one day at a time but removed it. BRING IT BACK!!! Even though they repeat the same shows over and over EVERY DAY. Please add more!!!! It has No live TV . The news channels are not great. Get stuff like Leave it to Beaver , family affair, I love Lucy etc.. please! when I first used this it buffered constantly and was unusable. It’s much better now. I’ll keep checking on it to see if they make improvements. Then I’ll change my review. I still have hopes for this app. It’s a great idea , it’s just got so little content. Like I said they rerun the same 5 episodes over every day. On every channel. But I’m hoping eventually it will get much better.
Fantastically Free
by FräuleinV on 2018/08/14 09:12
I stumbled across Pluto TV checking out a paid streaming TV service. While I will admit I wish I had AMC, that isn’t the point to Pluto. They deliver a variety of live content and I’d say there is most likely something for everyone. News fanatics, sports buffs, comedy enthusiasts, movie lovers, and even cartoons for both the young and the young at heart. I haven’t had any trouble streaming on the app (iPhone) but to my amazement there is also a Vizio app! The Vizio app works fairly well small bugs here and there but the entire service is free! No sign in required on the Vizio app although I would love the option so it knows my iPhone app preferences. All in all, I really don’t have any actual complaints. Pluto keep up the good work!
No search function
by Gabblebabbi on 2020/04/08 03:30
I do really like Pluto TV and what it does have to offer, but the fact that it doesn’t have a search function is a HUGE problem. There isn’t even a “continue watching” function in case you paused the movie for too long. Oh, and it even goes back to square one on the main menu if it’s paused for just long enough to show the screensaver on the fire stick. I hate to complain about a free streaming service, but I can’t understand for the life of me why that means sacrificing the basic conveniences of streaming. I should be able to easily find which movie I wanted to watch, and I shouldn’t be trapped into watching it all the way through if I don’t want to be booted out of it to the main menu. Commercial breaks are plenty enough to punish your viewers for free service, don’t turn them all away by intentionally making this a pain.
Great app but....
by Soul's Ladybug on 2018/01/22 19:08
This is a great app the only thing that's missing is the ability to pause what you're looking at. You get no warning when the commercials coming on your looking at your show when boom the commercial drops in. Don't look for local channels here there are none a great group of programming they must have had me in mind when the put everything into categories instead of the usual hunting and looking! Just downloaded today no sign in no account the app opened to the movie Yentl playing besides not being able to pause this is a good selection for a free app! Has sports, comedies, news, has a great radio selection, along with a few other categories you'll find you love! If anything changes I'll be back......!!!!
Registration of User is a Hard Thing to do!
by Papadaddys57 on 2020/07/07 19:44
I like the Ap! My problems happen when I try to register with Pluto! The other problem I previously had was the Ap staying connected to my WiFi and using data, even as I slept. Even with my Samsung 7 series Flat Screen, registration is still a chore unfinished, so I simply work with the available features. Don’t get me wrong on this, but overall, the Application gives you a lot of channels and movies to watch. So far, my best remedy for the problems has been to delete the app and download it again! Must be worth something to me because here I am again,...”Failed To Register With Little, or no responsive customer support?” My current O.S. Is the IPad Pro with the latest Apple has to offer!
Update a disaster: Totally screwed up channel grid
by Tominpaine on 2020/03/19 15:05
How could they be so stupid in an update to take 250 channels and get rid of the channel numbers? How could anyone think that’s an improvement? More proof that tech people and execs know how to write html and program but are ignoramuses when it comes to how people use it. The app used to have the channels numbered, color coded and with channel logos making it easy to find and scroll to. With this idiotic moronic update these idiots removed the channel numbers, removed the color coding and channel logos making everything tiny black and white type giving everyone eye strain trying to find the channels and making it harder to jump back and forth between multiple channels. Stupid beyond belief. It’s like the executives there and app designers never heard of the term graphic design,art direction or form follows function. Beyond idiocy.
Same Episodes
by Amazing Jana 🌟💁🏽‍♀️🌈🎨 on 2020/01/13 03:46
I watch Nick on Pluto TV and it’s really amazing because they have old shows from Nick, including older episodes of Spongebob and Fairly OddParents, but the problem is that most shows have the same episodes and I’ve probably watched the same episode of a show three days in a row, which is ridiculous on my part because I don’t watch Nick on my cable anymore and I was very happy when I saw this app because it has Nick. I really hope you can fix this problem and I recommend you putting up newer episodes and newer shows like the Loud House and the Casagrandes. I would also like it if you added CatDog on there as well because it’s one of my favorite 90’s cartoons. I really love your app and keep up the good work!
What a waste of time!
by I hate to be a bother but... on 2019/08/21 03:38
I got this app because it airs “Midsomer Murders”, which is one of my favorite shows from the UK. However it has been nothing but a massive disappointment. I have had to delete it about five times in the hopes that when I downloaded the app again the problems would have worked themselves out. But, NOOOO! I have yet to watch a single episode of “Midsomer Murders” in its entirety because the picture freezes or the sound goes silent, (although never when the commercials come on). I would also like to mention that when the show isn’t freezing or going dead silent the few episodes where the climax is about to reveal the “who did it” the credits start to roll. I’ll be honest with you when I tell you I have not watched any other channel that is part of Pluto so I do not know if this issue is channel-wide. If I could give it zero stars, I would, so consider yourselves lucky to get one star.
Very cool but still needs some work
by 47AaronK88 on 2019/03/14 22:08
Would give this a five star review if it wasn’t for the app taking along time to load on the PlayStation Network. Works better on My IPhone SE. It’s great if wanna experience some television of some sort. Although it crashes very, very often and often takes a long time to load. A few new music channels would be great. A real more modern music channels would be cool. A 90s Metal station would be great. A few others would be great but let’s start there. Has some classic movies playing. A few 3-4 year old television programs and sports events. A couple live sporting events and News channels but no weather channel of any sort that I’m aware of. Maybe because they don’t wanna fund separate channels for each state? When they continue to improve these issues my review may get better in the future.
I LOVE IT BUT MY SUGGESTION
by Bsnjay23 on 2019/07/20 19:32
I love Pluto so much and I’m glad it’s free but it’s a suggestion I would like to make now when I’m at home I be watching channels such as Univision TDN or Univision Deportes, Galavision, Univision, Claro Tv, Fox Sports, Televisa, Cartoon Network, Tvc deportes and I see y’all do not have those channels and I’m just asking if y’all can update and put those channels on there because when I’m on the go or on break or something I be missing my shows like La Rosa De Guadalupe, Cómo Dice El Dicho, Amazing world of gumball and I also be missing my soccer games like Liga MX, Liga MX Femenil and even my updates on sports like contacto deportivo so I’m hoping y’all will put those channels on there not for me but for any other hispanic or person who also love these channels thank you
Please work on it
by Dawsy308 on 2020/10/23 19:37
This app will cast to you tv with no problem. Trouble is there is no search feature to look for a specific video, you have to hunt for what you want and if you have to leave your video for some reason when you come back later there isn’t a resume feature either. You have to start your video from the beginning. And all controls have to be operated through your phone, all my other apps once I have a video running I can control volume, pause and restart with my tv remote. Which is a very good feature. Try pausing a video when a phone call comes in. Good luck with that. Another problem was I was watching a movie cast to my tv when all of a sudden the movie started playing on my phone, and at a different place. This app needs a lot of work to competitive with apps like Tubi or peacock.
Absolutely worthless
by fhyvdbibfghinbvvbklogdee on 2020/05/06 19:00
I downloaded the app because I was told it would have old school cartoons and shows that aren’t on demand like Spongebob and Fanboy and Chumchum. I got myself excited and comfy just to be forced into watching a show that’s airing on tv atm. There’s no way to close out of the show and browse peacefully and I hated it immediately. That wasn’t the worst part however, it also has absolutely no search bar or any decent way to find the show you’re looking for. The most you can hope for is that they’ve categorized it in the section you think it would be in, but even then they more than likely did not. I don’t see a point in having everyone be forced to browse through movies and tv shows without being able to search and watch what they want. In conclusion this app is worthless and I hope you will take these things into consideration before downloading.
The BEST App!! (to me)
by nUcleScratch on 2018/01/07 00:41
I’ve come across a lot of movie apps and have seen a lot of movies but this Pluto TV app takes the cake! There are so many movies, some are mainstream and some are not. Don’t expect movies right out the theater but you will get a great variety. There are commercials but I don’t even care, it keeps it real. The best thing is that when I pick the app, Bam! I hear and see a picture, it allows me scroll through and decide what I want to watch AND it instantly plays. Plus there is a Live TV section with a guide of what is playing, Whoa! Don’t rely on my words alone, try it out. I dare you, I triple dog dare you. See for yourself. Everybody has they’re own opinion, I gave you mine. Thanks Pluto TV..Keep up the great work!
Best in Class
by iTorpedo on 2018/12/17 11:27
... and better than some pay apps. Slicker working than Prime and way slicker than DTVN. No bugs and easy AirPlay. Lots of great content ALL FREE. I’ll gladly watch commercials to avoid fees and this app doesn’t kick you off when ads play. Just like old school TV in that way. Some really cool radio stations are also available but the fact that screen must stay on to play radio lost it a star. That’s the only thing I can see that needs fixing. Highly recommended. (Also a settings option to stop auto-play upon opening app would be a welcome feature). UPDATE DEC 2018: Suddenly not able to normal AirPlay to older Apple TV. Works fine on 4K Apple TV with downloaded app. AirPlay to older used to work and now gives an error. Pluto website says to screen mirror which I’m not bothering with. Minus 2 stars for less user friendliness and I’ll AirPlay something else on the older TVs.

Great app BUT 2MANYADS
by Jsj2k on 2021/05/13 04:22
I really enjoy this app and the diversity of programming available on it. However, there are far too many ads. The frequency and length of ads seems to be increasing. This is affecting the quality of the programming in my opinion.
WHY PLUTO IS SO GOOD!!

by chickie468 on 2021/05/13 01:07
I’ve already uninstalled and reinstalled the app and it still freezes when connected to my tv. I have to open my iPhone up for the movie to start playing again. This is really getting ridiculous now. Please help me.

People don’t understand anything
by Nibby1120 on 2021/05/11 21:07
This app is FREE. If they add all the things others want like Fox News and local channels and nick it won’t be free. It would be Hulu live and cost money. Why don’t people understand this? They have to pay 💰 to be able to air that stuff. Where would it come from? YOU paying for it. The app is great as is. If you want Fox News cnn nick local channels get cable or utube or Hulu live and pay $70 a month.

Horrible
by Angry kel on 2021/05/11 12:51
This is one of the worst app setups I’ve ever seen. You can’t search anything, there’s no progress bar for commercials, and I went back a few seconds in the movie and it took me back 25min and won’t let me skip back. Just absolute garbage. Hey Tubi instead. Way more options and actually functions properly.

Need a search function
by outofspoons on 2021/05/11 04:09
I’ve used Pluto regularly for about two years. The performance of the app has improved, but I still find Pluto to be less stable than other apps like Tubi. (Fast forwarding or rewinding within an episode is an exercise in futility, for example, and always has been.) Also, they continue to add content, which I appreciate. But each time they add new shows, the absence of a search function becomes more and more egregious.
Search?
by Jon563478 on 2021/05/11 01:32
Needs a search function. That’s a deal breaker for me. Bye bye Pluto.
annoying
by babsbababsbs on 2021/05/10 22:06
they just REPEAT episodes instead of actually playing different ones. i already watched the same episode of certain shows so many times. it’s annoying.
Pluto tv is great
by aikiboy on 2021/05/10 19:54
I never knew about Pluto. I always wondered why someone didn’t try to put TV on the internet for free. Then I found Pluto! The best thing is that they have the greatest tv line up of all and for free! Gone is my $200.00 a month cable Bill! I’m glad for the commercials and I will buy their products! I love the conservative news channels as well as the westerns! JG Houston, Texas

Not sure about other channels on PlutoTV, but BBC Home airs the same episodes repeatedly throughout the week. New content is desperately needed.

Great except for one thing
by calix2000 on 2021/05/09 18:26
This relates to the tv app (just haven’t noticed it on the phone app) and that’s the fact that I’m trying to watch one channel because their happens to be a movie or two that I want to see. But that stupid pop up happens every hour or so asking to add to my favorites. How many times do I have to say dismiss before it stops asking. It’s extremely annoying and if I added every time it asked my favorite channel list would every channel. Please fix this. No means no!!!!!
Free!!!
by lchandler87 on 2021/05/09 16:02
I like the fact that I don’t have to pay for TV un-like other apps. It’s nice to finally have free tv a long as I have a data connection. Wish we could have a dvr for the times that I don’t, and having local channels would be awesome. I’d pay for those features. Just saying.
No search option
by Bulguard on 2021/05/09 15:33
The app has no search option, it has good content if you can find it. It starts to play live content without being asked, kinda of annoying there. The browse feature freezes causing me to restart the app. When I can find what I’m looking for and get it started I enjoy the programming
Search bar

Waste of time
by Mrufka on 2021/05/09 04:53
The same ads are playing at list 3 times in a row and on top of that your movie keep restarting for beginning at random points😳 so you have to start watching it again, or if you remember where it cut you off, navigate there and of course another set of ads will play before it returns to the movie. Then you realize it’s not where you left off so you skip more and more ads! This is the worst app ever! Never again! Do yourself a favor and pay $3 to rent the movie you want to watch without interruption instead of spending here 4 hours on free movie with ads 👍
Wow, no search functionality?
by BinkyTom on 2021/05/08 23:34
Can’t search? This app is not ready for primetime.
Search bar
by Meatyandbiddy on 2021/05/08 23:02
Great app! They have a wide range of free movies; however I can’t find a search bar on the mobile app. They should really add one. It would go from being a great app to a fantastic app!
Search Bar

It’s cool that it’s all free, but would love to see a search bar to easily get to what I want.

Free TV BUT…
by Thaumaturgist on 2021/05/08 09:20
It’s free and the price you pay is commercials,I’m ok with that, BUT the app lacks the ability to search for the shows you want, that means you must browse by category and the shows are not alphabetical. It’s like going to blockbuster and you must look at each dvd every time. WHAT’S VERY BAD IS THAT THE APP CRASHES FREQUENTLY AND YOU MUST RESTART THE SHOW. WORSE, AS YOU FAST FORWARD YOU MUST WATCH BLOCKS IF COMMERCIALS BEFORE YOU GET TO THE POINT WHERE THE APP CRASHED. For a 2 hour movie, if commercials are every 15-30 minutes and you were at the last 10 minutes you must watch another 14± commercials (14 minutes) you had to do this before. It wouldn’t surprise me if that was part of their revenue plan. App crashes generate revenue

This app is ok it has some good movies and shows but it’s the navigation that bothers me I can’t search up anything I have to keep scrolling until I find it which is really irritating and also it feels like they only put the same show every single time but overall I think you should get this app but I recommend the company that made this to add a search bar.
Crashes. Frequently
by rstr124 on 2021/05/07 14:07
Annoying that I can’t make it through a movie. The app crashes and sends me back to the beginning of the movie. I gave up after three tries. At the very least they should find a way to pick up where you left off.

Way too many commercials. Constantly stalls. Pausing & restarting a movie is like pulling teeth. No direct e-mail address for technical support. Knowledgebase is useless.

Ten Minutes of Program, 20 of Ads
by Zippy Tu Yu on 2021/05/06 21:58
New post- If you want to watch 7-8 minutes of ads and 1.5 minutes of program, this is the app for you. Just tried to watch another DABL program, and it cuts off mid word to go to commercialS, I’ve been timing these and it’s gotten to the point to not watching this Pluto App at all. Original post- AND - I’ve about had it! I’ve been timing the ads and the programs. Watching a program and it will go to ads in the middle of a word, and then resume after you KNOW the program was cut when it was restarted and often right at what would have been the end of the story/program. ABSOLUTELY THE WORST in Programming. BTW- DABL is the worst offender, the others channels are almost just as bad. I think third graders could do a better job. The commercials are offensive and repeat and loop the repeat every five minutes. Just AWEFUL 😖.
Good for me.

To many adds
by James Falgo on 2021/05/06 07:42
I must say that my experience here sucked. I would watch four minutes of a show then I would get a two minute add and it’s never different adds it’s always the same few.

The proposal is amazing, but the app is lame
by jeny18091990 on 2021/05/05 19:12
I usually don’t rate apps, but I really hope the developers see this, because their content is great, a bunch of classic movies, really great! But the app is really hard to navigate, the interface is pretty bad and the live TV keeps playing even when you close it - which makes it very hard to search other titles. So, unless you know what you are looking for there, you will probably give up looking for something.
Great app!

Intermission’s galore...
by spring_h20 on 2021/05/05 13:20
I get the commercial’s are what makes this free, but for the love god and anything holy... Can ya’s cut down on the breaks!!! (7) 90-120 second commercial breaks in a one hour show, how about trying (4) 3-5 minute breaks in a show, see how that works for ya’s!?!?!? Just sayin’

Bugs, stalls and messes
by 873926639 on 2021/05/04 19:12
Due to bad programming, the app often stalls while it (probably) is loading up the next batch of commercials. Often the in-demand tv shows restart on their own before they are finished. When you try to move the timing bar back to where it was, it ignores you and throws on another commercial. When you turn the app on its side it starts a new batch of commercials. Lots of the TV shows don’t work at all or are out of order so the story lines jump back and forth as you go through a season. This app is programmed by amateurs and apparently there isn’t a seasoned pro in the whole engineering dept. Lastly, you can’t contact the company at all and tell them about the bugs. If they knew what they were doing, maybe these issues wouldn’t exist. Of course, maybe they would and judging by the above issues, it seems the company doesn’t care to make the app work right.
TV on the go
by Jay.Sant on 2021/05/04 12:28
I very much love Pluto. Without cable subscription you can watch shows, programs, movies and news on the go. I use it on my iPhone and it’s very convenient when your in a hotel with lousy cable service and only get certain channels because of poor signal or service. Go with Pluto.
No search bar

In the mobile app there is not a search bar 😩 I would like to be able to search the exact thing I came to Pluto for

Great free tv
by Westex62 on 2021/05/04 02:45
I really enjoy finding shows to watch on my iPad with my earbuds on while my husband sleeps. I do wonder why they have a channel devoted to WINGS but they only show a few episodes from the first couple of seasons. The show was on for years, why not show them in sequence and all of them?
Cannot cast

I have Chromecast and use it all the time. But I can’t get Pluto to cast. I don’t get the code.
Gut wrenching experience
by Baby2011(2) on 2021/05/03 18:25
Commercials every couple minutes and constant crashes. Then when it does crash, it forces more commercials just trying to find the spot where you were. I can’t believe it got past Apple’s qa

This app is the worst.
by Piper408 on 2021/05/03 03:01
You can’t search, when you leave the app, it doesn’t remember where you were and you have to search the episode yourself, and it won’t let you save your stuff. Disaster! Not even worth it free…..

Update is horrible
by Dan4474 on 2021/05/02 15:57
Programs glitchy and will rewind its self where you have to watch what you just watched, and sound cuts out sometimes. I never had a problem before the update! I hope they fix it or I won’t mess with it.

No good
by EndymionNomad on 2021/05/02 14:26
- Immediately starts playing live tv & can’t dismiss while browsing - No search capability (table stakes) - Won’t keep you signed into the app, even during the same session The UX is half baked on this. Deleted same day.

Only plus is no sign-in necessary
by LutherianSteel on 2021/05/02 07:08
This app is garbage. The only reason I downloaded it was because it’s the only platform that offered a specific movie I wanted to watch for free. This turned out to be impossible, though, because the app has no search function. Beyond that, very simple functions like scrolling hardly work. The only reason I think the app has any merit at all is because you don’t need to create an account and give away personal data just to use it.
Great!!
by tasha77 on 2021/05/02 05:58
I love this app!! It is great being able to watch such classics and be transported back in time. I always smile when using the app because it brings back great memories as I watch shows that meant a lot to me. I am so thankful for this amazing free app, which I would recommend to everyone!!

App crashes too much
by NonicknameH on 2021/05/01 16:50
Every time I go to watch the app in the middle of me watching a show or movie the app crashes or buffers. This seems to be an ongoing problem even when the app is updated it doesn’t help because it does the same thing. Can you please fix this problem.
Not so hot
by PHOTOlink on 2021/05/01 00:07
The controls to move forward and back are difficult to use. The slider and 10 ahead and back buttons are too small and don’t work well at all. Good selection but controls are poorly operating.
Great app
by PissedOffXXX on 2021/04/30 23:26
Definitely great shows for free
What a creation.....variety!!
by 1stCeye on 2019/05/05 21:19
This has to be the best free TV anywhere! There is something for EVERYONE TO WATCH! I am a train hobbyist. I was shocked when checking out my new TV Stations to discover a channel (SLOWLY) that takes me on a train ride through different countries...this month has been really interesting...NORWAY by train..they change the seasons as we travel along so I have seen snow covered mountains, lowlands, and fjords then seconds later the scene changes to summer with trees and plants...what a treat to see this country while sitting in my armchair/bed! There are movies galore! All the different types of MUSIC and newly added MTV....SPORTS, ACTION FILM, TV SERIES, GAME SHOWS FROM THE 70’s when they were golden....it’s free, people! Free.....support is immediate and friendly. My suggestions were acknowledged and to my delight implemented....now that’s a great TV STATION.... late at night, I relax, watching The Pet channel/ We 💛Pets....dogs, cats, birds, Turtles....all wonderful....And a channel devoted to funny cat antics...I guarantee you will laugh...some nights I scroll through just for fun...and always there is something new to catch my attention! “Try it——you’ll like it”.....😄😄😄😄😄🙋🏻‍♀️
Same shows, same commercials
by Burghguy1 on 2020/08/15 12:40
I thought this was great at first until I really started to watch. It's all the same shows just on a loop. I can't count the number of times I've seen the same episodes and the same movies. I've actually found myself watching less frequently and I have several different channels saved as favorites but it's all the same over and over again. The commercials for the channels show better movies than what is actually played. When's the last time you showed Red Dawn? I've never seen it. But I've seen Chopping Mall about every other day. I wish you actually played the movies you show in the commercials. But the main reason I've been watching less is the commercials. Talk about a lack of variety. For the love of God get some different commercials. The same ones played every commercial break over and over before I just turn it off. How many times do I have to see the same political ads, the same Siesta Key ad, "Thank about what I saw!" or the Hills"I want to forgive you and I want to forget you." The repetition is enough to drive you crazy. The same ads played over and over again on every channel. If you offered an ad free version for a few bucks I'd almost be willing to pay for it. Almost. That doesn't solve the problem of showing the same episodes and movies until I can recite them. Miss a movie? Don't worry. It will be on again tomorrow or even the same day on a different channel. And the next day and the next day.
Overall is good, however is uncomfortable to use
by kiwi_Cake on 2020/07/04 21:36
I came to this app only for the anime and have found one that I liked a lot (and couldn't seem to find anywhere else!) and it’s the only reason I continued to use this app. The fact that this app is completely free is amazing. However, if you aren’t a very patient person then this app isn’t for you. There are a total of three ads, each 30 seconds long at least (they are unskippable) showing up together 3 times throughout a single episode. That’s 4:30 seconds worth of ads per episode. Yeah, that’s a lot. Another issue I have with this app is the programming of it. Seriously, hire some real programmers that actually know how to make apps. Not only is the app glitchy by itself, the “forwards” and “backwards” buttons don’t even work! You could press on them forever but they wouldn’t move the episode even a second forward or backward. If you by any chance had had to unfortunately miss some part of the video then fear not: all you have to do is replay the episode from the very beginning and watch all the ads again with it (I know that sounds very exciting indeed!) . So to summarize it all: don’t use this app if you’re impatient and don’t use this app if you get distracted easily. That’s all from me. Hope the devs will fix the app someday!
I just downloaded this because of Instagram ads
by Ayden Girl on 2020/06/24 14:20
Hey I just downloaded this app because of the ad on Instagram so I wanted to see what it was like. Overall I like the content there is a wide variety of shows and movies and they have old shows like fear factor that aren’t available anywhere else but a lot of the shows and movies are available through regular cable which is nice I guess if you don’t have cable. I think you guys should change the layout of the app it’s very weirdly laid out and then when I was looking for movies and tv shows there is no search bar so the only way to look up movies and tv shows is via genre which I found very tedious and annoying because I wanted to see if you had specific movies and or tv shows like wipe out but I can’t look it up the second problem I had was when you open the app it takes you directly to the live tv but when I want to watch movies and or a different tv show on demand the live tv noises are still in the background while I am looking while xfinity or any other app usually stops the live show while you are looking for another one. Sorry for being too critical but this is a review it is a pretty good app it just needs a lot of app adjustments just to make it better.
The Best App!
by LovingThe Lord! on 2021/02/19 03:35
I don’t write reviews. In fact, this is the first review I’ve written for an App. I’ve had & been watching Pluto for so long, I can’t remember not having it. It’s one of my most used app’s on my iPad. Pluto is so good I’m thinking about shutting off my cable television. Pluto has pretty much anything one could ask for & more. They are constantly adding new channels. They have so many different categories of entertainment, music, movies both new & old. You can watch some regular television stations, if you want. There are stations for old television shows. Channels for every kind of music. But, for me, it’s everything that I haven’t mentioned that I love about Pluto. There is so much here to watch & listen to that is uniquely their own, things you would not see or here anywhere. This app cannot be put into a category I’ve never had a problem with the app, no bugs or issues. Pluto is more than just another app, it is an Experience. It’s obvious I love Pluto. The best & most difficult thing to believe is it is free! Pluto is a treasure & it’s diversity is incredible.
Horror fans we are back in!
by Rosymenu on 2018/05/30 22:52
If you are one of those horror fans that was disappointed to see the chiller channel go without a second thought to us horror fans, then give Pluto tv a try! They have loads of great channels and a 24/7 horror movie channel that shows nothing but a great selection or horror related movies and shows, plus they are constantly adding new channels. I was convinced to give this app a try and I’m glad I did! It’s very easy to navigate and the quality is good. The only draw back I’m having is sometimes, out of nowhere, there is like a quick second cut out or pause, would be a better word, and whatever I’m watching will restart with a second delay or a second forward of what I’m watching, if that makes any sense, not too big of a deal, could be WiFi connection but if Others are experiencing this could be something within the app? Not complaining much after all it’s free and I’m pretty happy with it and in my opinion it’s the best streaming tv app out there!
The best, but there’s room for improvements.
by galloitaliano27 on 2020/03/09 20:57
Simply put: PlutoTV is, without a doubt, the best free Live TV app in any platform. Hands down. Although I praise the creators for their incredible achievement, I think there is plenty of room for improvement. For instance, I would suggest to expand the time frame in the guide. As it stands now it is way too limited, if we check the guide to see what’s next we’re only allow to see two or three titles, at times just one. It is unfortunate cause so many good movies and shows go unnoticed due to a lack of awareness. If you could sort it out PlutoTV would take a massive step in the right direction. Secondly, the Spanish content is too limited as well. No saying it isn't good, but I think more movies and documentaries should be added. The Hispanic community thrives for good AND exciting programming, we are more than just Novelas and Soccer. We love Hollywood movies too. And so, please gives us great content DUBBED IN SPANISH, please. Oh and before I forget, the Películas en español on the On Demand section should have way more programming too! There are movies on Latino Live TV that isn’t available On Demand!! Fix this please..! And lastly, apparently switching channels in the TV app is currently unavailable. Any updates coming soon? I can live with the third point, but I would immensely appreciate if the first and second points are addressed in future updates. Thanks you so, so much for this APP!!
Some good some bad
by Baldie1946 on 2021/01/10 18:06
Gee whiz.......STILL waiting for “customer support” to get back to me on the few simple questions I mentioned below. It’s been 2 weeks now? Think their lousy “support” practices is their weakest link? At this rate a one star rating could be generously too high. Yeah...good shows and movies.......BUT.....WHY CAN’T THEY MAKE A SEARCH BUTTON? Want to find a movie? Well search through ALL categories and you may find it! I watched a bit of a few movies. They were bad. So I stopped watching, removed it from my watch list.....and there it sits in “Continue Watching” list. I DONT WANT TO KEEP WATCHING IT! There is no button to remove it from that list. Watch 50 movies.....will be 50 movies sitting in the list. So you have to see the movie to it’s end and be sure it is off your watch list or something else I did and it finally goes away. But a “Remove from continue watching” button would be great. Finally.....customer service? “Contact Us?” Ha! They send you the cut and paste response of how they will get right on this for me and my wishes are important to them.......then they never get back to you. NETFLIX THEY ARE NOT......just wannabes. For this, they get a one star rating because I can’t give a half star rating.
Ok but not great.
by BintegratedTech on 2018/12/11 18:01
I signed up on the computer using google but the app does not have a login with google option so I had to setup another account using just email. Favorites in the app or in the web browser do not stay as favorites. No favorite recall menu. Video and audio glitches all the time. Commercials are not synced with shows and cuts off important or suspenseful parts. I use the web version and iOS app version and have the issue on all 3 of my devices, iPhone, iPad, and Windows Laptop using Google Chrome. I love the app but the MANY technical issues are almost not worth it. I am not sure how old this app is but live streaming has been down to a science for many years but these guys don't seem to even see that bar. Have been using it on LTE and Fiber backed WiFi at over 50Mbps down 30Mbps up both scenarios with the exact same issues. The iOS app version also appears to reset itself mid stream in an attempt to catch up but then skips parts of the show or will back track to a part that has already been shown and then skip forward again and cut more stuff out. The whole Pluto TV service needs work. A lot of work.
Pluto Tv
by Grifftrain on 2020/01/05 19:31
It’s a great app. The one complaint I have would be lots of commercials interrupting the shows. But I understand the need for them. There are many, many commercial breaks. Another thing I would like to see is being able for me to broadcast to my tv. I understand it’s possible in some cases, but trying to stream to my smart tv doesn’t work. It could be my tv is to old. I know it sounds like I listed a lot of complaints, but for a free streaming service, this is a great app with many great channels. Rifftrax, mst3k, music channels, news, comedy stand up, drama shows and movies, Pluto tv has it all. For those looking to “cut the cable tv cord” this is a great option ***update**** my cable tv service now provides a Pluto tv app. So now I can watch Pluto on my big screen tv. It really is a good app with nice variety. Only complaint is the same as before. Many commercials. But it’s enough content to satisfy most any viewer
An 80’s music video channel
by Shanlie on 2021/02/19 15:48
I love the concept of the "what’s old is new" but innovated. Curated content but in categories. If you’re tired of searching for something to watch but know at least what you're in the mood for...you know you want to watch a 90s movie or a horror movie or whatever genre it has its own channel within Pluto TV. Everything is pre-scheduled and curated so you just find your niche and settle in. It’s commercial driven but not invasive at the very least. [*The 80s Vevo side scroll channel SOLD ME! My new favorite "radio station" .... it’s music videos from the 80’s more or less. I literally put it on and go about my life yet inevitably end up stopping and watching for an hour. Blasts from the past so fresh it made me feel happy i found PlutoTV. Heard from a tv segment on the radio... and plugged it in via Apple TV. I’m a music fan so it suits me just solely in this one feature. Hidden gem. ]
Awesome content
by VirginiaHouse on 2021/01/27 02:51
I have had Pluto tv for some while now and I have always loved it for content and some of my fave wedding shows like David Tutera’s My Fair Wedding and Amazing wedding cakes and also the home and diy lineup on design network and front door are amazing (some of the hgtv ones are my fave). But for a long time now my fave older showers featuring my favorite designer of all time Sarah Richardson has not been able to be found anywhere but in a miracle -Y’all have her and I am so thankful and love it and all her shows I just seen them yesterday and am watching right now just wanted to shoot this review in during commercials, I hope y’all get all her shows Room Service, Design Inc, Sarah 101, Sarah’s House and Sarah’s Cottage and even Sarah off the grid and Sarah sees Potential, I mean there is no design challenge to hard for her and Tommy! So Thank Thank Thank You Pluto Tv and abl network!!! Y’all are great
SOTG (Suggestions On The Go)
by Frogs107 on 2019/06/30 16:34
I had had channels for my pets like The Pet Collective and the Western Channels but they’re gone now and we have a new guide to go by and can’t set up tv for our animals? That’s BS. You, as a developer, should have KEPT the channels that both people and animals found cute and antiqued because it would have kept a lot of people at bay. Also, I have some suggestions, you should try and broker a deal with some kid friendly channels so that children from the ages of ten and under can watch too. Along with that goes for brokering for Animal Planet (cute but sad and keeps kids from abandoning their pets), Disney Jr/Nick Jr (children’s channels), History plus Military History(kind of the same channels but Military History is the throwback of History Channel for MILITARY), and some more movies that are not rated R like Big Hero 6, Hachikō, Max (Marine. Hero. Friend.), and some other family related ones. You guys really need this or Pluto TV would not be free.
Love this app

How To Restart Episodes From The Beginning ..?!!??
by The.Nick.Name on 2019/08/21 12:16
I have been constantly having this same problem from the beginning which i downloaded this App over a year ago. I can’t restart episodes in the Free Tv and Movies Section. Even if the episode ends and runs all the way it will not restart. All it has is 15 second rewind and 15 second forwarding which is also not working properly since your newest update. It’s not possible to restart a full episode or pull back with the status bar. Most episodes I am unable to watch over again. There seems to be either an update issue or a function issue because this particular issue has never had a proper function. PLEASE HELP ! Your App is awesome but this particular issue and function problem is very problematic. I am using an Apple iPad with the latest ios software. I also could find where to email you my issue so unfortunately I had to write you in the review section. Thank you
Cops TV Show is playing same episodes every day!!!!!
by Baby21Girlx on 2020/03/28 00:26
I just absolutely love this app! I use it everyday! & I am so happy you guys have now added cops.... but this past week, you guys are playing the exact same episodes every day & night around the exact same times.... I absolutely love this show... but can you please add more episodes & seasons because the exact same shows are playing every day & night!!! Please!!!!! Minus that, I do love this app. It’s my favorite app & I use it everyday. Please added more seasons & episodes because there’s no point of watching it every day when the same episodes are coming on. It’s been like this this past week, I don’t know if it’s been like this from the start, I just started watching it as soon as I got an email from you guys saying you just added the show!
GREAT FREE TV!
by NeverForgetTheirSacrifice on 2020/01/01 15:17
My husband and I really enjoy PLUTO! It is really now our go-to media stream. We both enjoy the history and military channels as they show programming we have never seen on other media TV. We also enjoy the British programming very much and are thrilled that PLUTO has some....only wish they could add some more current British shows, too. Maybe in the future we hope! I would highly recommend others to download the PLUTO app on all your devices. FYI: The only small annoyance/negative comment we have is the cutting to commercials during scenes. We don’t understand why this is done. Can’t PLUTO wait to the end of a scene or, in some cases, in the middle of a sentence, before jumping to commercial breaks? Annoying item that we would think could be easily remedied and not frustrate viewership.
Don’t Pause or You Can’t Restart From Same Soot.

There’s no way to report errors or contact customer service so I have to leave the issue on here. Don’t Pause or You Can’t Restart From Same Spot w/ Chromecast. I’ve been 50 minutes into a movie that I can’t restart from the same spot if I want to use Chromecast. I can watch on phone but as soon as I cast it, it goes back to the beginning. You can’t manually move the counter. I tried tapping the skip 15 seconds a whole lot to get to get 50 minutes, but you get stuck at the commercial breaks. 3 times I attempted on 3 different days, but I give up. It takes so long to get to 24 minutes it’s just not worth my time. I started something else, paused, it dropped from Chromecast and guess what, couldn’t start from spot and had to restart from beginning and couldn’t get back to my spot. I am just going to use something else. No response from developer to reviews on the App Store tell the store of their Customer Service focus - there is none.
Incredible
by Jlfuller3 on 2019/08/22 14:07
This is incredible for free tv! I wasn’t expecting much because it was free and free is never that promising but I am thrilled to have been proven wrong. There are some actual titles on here and a good amount to choose from for being free. I imagine once more people use this app, the more and better channels could be provided in the future. I also thought that it would be nice to add a sleep timer in the app and possibly a comments section for fun in the free movies + tv section. I noticed one issue when attempting to rewind show after an ad has played, I can’t rewind past it. The ad played in the middle on a sentence so I was like “no big deal I can just rewind it after the ad is finished but it just rewinds back into the ad and you can’t use playback controls during an ad.
Love and loss
by CaptMerika2001 on 2020/04/29 21:42
My wife and I love this app. Being cord cutters it reminds us of the way TV used to be. I like the channel surfing and to a degree commercial breaks in the shows. Content is enjoyable. I like Fail Army, she enjoys The Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders, and we both can’t wait till 8:00 each evening for some Supermarket Sweep. What we have lost here is some of the picture. Buzzer channel looses the Letter Box format for a zoom to 16:9 that scalps some of the folks on the screen. We have noticed that other channels, we’re looking at you American Gladiators, still keep the proper aspect ratio for the way which it was filmed. I’m requesting that the Letter Box format returns to shows that need it. Do that and you get your fifth star PlutoTV! Update: Buzzer is now in Letter Box format. True to my word this is now a Five Star App!
The good, the bad and the ugly
by pitagreen on 2020/01/12 22:37
The good: -lots of old cartoons you won’t find on cabletv -lots of other old shows cabletv won’t bother showing anymore -there is old Logo. this is the Logo I want! (Minus showing CYBILL which reminds me of the new Logo lineup which isn’t great.) -foreign shows (well kid shows) -no edited scenes The bad: -Wish there was a favorite feature on firetv. Hell the one on the app on the iPhone is basically useless. Hurry it up already and fix this feature. I’m sick of scrolling through all these channels just to get through my favorites. It’s a pain moving back and forth 24 hours to get through my favorites (and this is an issue they haven’t fixed in a year) -I need a foreign movie channel. The ugly: -Nickelodeon. I can understand Disney not being here but why Nick? Why all the multiple channels for them? Are they really that desperate because nobody watches them anymore? Where is CN? Just give me CN when it was amazing (which was last decade ago...) -the ads. Just show fewer ads please. You’re becoming like cable t.v. -lots of godawful low budget 3D animation movies -Needs more variety of shows and movies. Which is another issue cable t.v. faces as well. I just hope there will be quick upgrades if not then I’ll probably be too immune to the negative aspects of Pluto to even care about upgrades or I’ll just become too tired and just move on to a similar app. Happy reading!
I just turned into a streamer last Tuesday
by 1@#$&7 on 2021/02/08 22:56
And I love this channel. We always watched live PD even reruns, I love Pluto it’s got a lot of shows covering the law and real life crime shows like court tv that I am watching right now..keep up the good work.. I hope that you continue adding real life shows that are not covering rich sisters and boyfriend’s and shopping..even if you have shows that are not current..we have something to watch that doesn’t cost us, because we are seniors and are trying to live on a budget..maybe you will continue doing shows that the older people can enjoy and continue with cop shows. My brother was a police officer and most people don’t realize how much they struggled to keep all of us safe..please continue the good work..
What did you expect?
by Camtj on 2019/03/20 01:49
It’s free. Simple as that. So, why am I not giving it five stars? For a few reasons. 1. This is the biggest problem in my opinion. Bad shows, I get it that you are free and all, but seriously? The ASYLUM!? With such horrible movies as trolland, Atlantic rim, and more why would they even be allowed on this? Have some quality control. Come on! Anime is really the only stuff that you can get licensed that isn’t A) trash or B) really old or C) reality TV 2. No search feature. I should be able to search stuff on demand, an inconvenience yes, but still a problem. Same with the channels. I should be able to type in a channel name or number and be taken to it. 3. The ads are all wrong. Say I am watching something on demand and something funny happened right before an ad plays. I want to rewind and it makes sense that after the ad plays, I should be able to rewind, right? WRONG. The ad is a PART of the episode or movie and controls can’t be used during ads so I can’t rewind it! Even after the ad is done, it is still there, a part of the episode/movie, if I rewind, I have to somehow get past an ad when I can’t due to it not allowing controls! 4) No familiar channels. No local news, no fox news, no cartoon network, nickelodeon, Disney XD or even Disney channel! This app needs to be better. It doesn’t even have boomerang which would be great!
It’s alright, I guess..
by Oxi Clean Stain Detergent on 2019/07/23 02:26
So, I guess the idea is that you can watch shows on the app without paying. The thing is, why isn’t there a search button? I was wondering if there was a button where I could search for certain TV Shows but I couldn’t find any. All I did was scroll around for 20 minutes around the Free Movies + TV tab, looking for Hotel Hell and The Office from the sitcom section because I don’t know how to.. exactly work it. I just need a search button where I could just search shows and stuff without the need to look around for Ninja Warrior and Wipeout unless it’s just showing me what’s playing at the moment. Overall, there are shows you can watch even though I don’t find anything that uh particularly catches my eye besides Adaption.. hadn’t watched it yet but it seems and looks good because it looks interesting and it’s at the comedy section.
Love it! Truly free and awesome
by Frowny Car on 2020/01/14 07:21
I have used Pluto for a good while now and I have been very happy with it. I haven’t had any technical issues or issues with streaming. I use Visible carrier and zero issues for me so anyone with a decent carrier should have no problems at all. I love the variety of shows.. there’s really something for just about any one. We like to watch This Old House and The Addams family as a family and my hubby likes to watch Bevis and Butthead, my kids like the cartoons and the cat channel, I like the reality shows and old classic shows I grew up watching. We watch on tv and on my phone. Zero complaints and only stars from me for this awesome tv app. Hope it’s around for many years to come. I also appreciate the news is available on here too.
Good Service, Not My Thing
by DDewDropsS on 2020/04/05 03:11
It’s a pretty good service, but there are some things that I don’t like about it. You can’t pause the live tv or rewind or ANYTHING like that. You also can’t search for shows on On Demand. So it’s basically hunting through the genres for the one show you want to watch. It has a lot of shows but not a lot of variety in them. It’s basically just a free cable service, but not as good. It’s not really my thing. But for people who would want to watch cable tv anywhere, go for it (it’s a little glitchy tho.) I don’t really enjoy the types of shows they have. But again, although I probably won’t use this app, it’s a good free service for people who want to watch live tv with decent variety (I gave it 4 stars because it’s a decent app even though I don’t like it)
Free tv
by The lair on 2020/09/19 07:49
It’s kind of like watching tv you pay for. There is a similar menu. You switch from channel to channel. Lots of the programs run several in a row, which is a lot better in you watch tv sporadically; you find something you l8ke and there are several episodes run in a row! The variety of programming is very nice! I tell my friends to watch it and they find shows they like even if their taste is different than mind. It has commercials . However, they are brief. The commercials are family items mostLy. So that works for most people. The commercials breaks aren't long. Many are repeated, but that’s fine because they are brief. I’d like to see more programs and original series! So I hope that it will grow.
BEST TV APP EVER! And it’s FREE!!!
by Amos20111 on 2019/12/24 14:39
I’m shocked no one knows about this app yet. I only found it in like FALL 2019. Wish it were advertised somewhere so I could have downloaded it sooner. Not in top 200 apps? Not on every single millennials phone yet? Why? IDK! But I’m glad I found it and now I’ll tell all my friends about it. It’s FREE, dark mode by default, and changing the channel is instant. No annoying pop up ads, and I actually like the commercials, feels like home. It has all the major new channels 24/7 so I don’t have to download all the new stations’ apps. Tom Ryan is a genius, he’s like the Steve Jobs of tv apps. Now if only Pluto TV can install a “return” button so I can flashback to the last channel I was watching, that would put the cherry on top of this birthday cake of an app.
Live channels in Foreground on Mobile
by ZTSylvestre on 2021/03/08 02:09
First off I will start by saying that I really appreciate this free all so much, thank you. I’m using an iPhone 11 and sometimes when I minimize the Pluto app while watching a Live Channel the window will close down to one corner of my screen and continue to play the Live Channel while I continue to navigate my phone in my web browser and other apps. Sometimes it just closes the Pluto app altogether. I can’t figure out what the deciding factor is, but this feature is really amazing! I would really love to be able to do this consistently! Regardless, thank you so much for such a wonderfully simple and easy to navigate, completely free streaming service! It’s amazing!
Getting worse
by redrok84 on 2020/03/01 06:04
The content is fine, but the app (really on any platform (iOS, Roku, etc) is becoming unusable. The constant changes to the “look” and adding/subtracting channels is frustrating — all while this is happening the actual usability of the app is not improving — my biggest issue is the channel favoriting is still not working and has never even been an option on some of our devices — we would 100% use this service more and have it on more devices (thus increasing your ad revenue) if I could just hide channels that my kids (all under 10) don’t need to be accidentally seeing (ie. Eye Candy Channel, Horror Movies, Tosh.0, amongst others). I’m not saying the channels need to be removed, but I should be able to hide them or you need to add parental controls and profiles. Either way, still won’t be using the app anywhere except my phone until it’s fixed and will keep using Xumo on the other devices (as it does allow hiding channels)
The Good and The Bad
by abd410 on 2021/03/06 01:36
For a free app maybe we shouldn’t ask for much. I’m still finding things to get excited about. 80’s music videos? Yes please! Three’s Company and campy horror movies you forgot existed, that TLC series you’re 5 years behind on, all there. I love the content. BUT..... How is there no search option? Please add a search option! My biggest pet peeve with this app is the continuation, more specifically the lack of. If you’re watching an episode of a series, when the episode is over it jumps to BET Live instead of going to the next episode. You have to back out to the home page, switch back to On Demand, and find the next episode. Really irritating and I don’t use it much for this reason. I watch a sitcom episode during my lunch break now and that’s about it because I get tired of the aggravation involved.
Up Date Review
by FritzBruce1 on 2020/05/27 06:07
I was perfectly happy with my Pluto TV except for the plethora of commercials but what do you expect . Until I hit the update button for some insane reason, and my screen divided in half and my viewing picture became 1/4 of what it used to be and it can’t be expanded ! I can never make the menu go away, like basically introduce some sort of virus into my iPad which they say can’t be done but who knows I can’t I cannot reboot in the old mode and it and I am getting sick of dealing with it . Before I would have given 4 to 4 1/2 stars , and now it’s like negative one star I am so disappointed especially since I can’t watch my NASA streaming television anymore with the historic launch coming up tomorrow .I’m a senior I am disabled and my vision is going I am so disappointed .!, sincerely ,David
Constant Buffering
by whatelseis there on 2019/01/24 03:38
I will say I love Pluto tv, but it’s starting to get annoying, I mostly watch it on my tablet, and one of my favorite channels is buzzer 514, it constantly buffers and on occasion it freezes up or just freezes the picture then it doesn’t pick up where it left off.. it does this just about every 3-5 seconds, I went into the App Store to see if it needed to be updated but it does not need updating.. but when I go into my phone app it needed an update.. wish you could fix this problem.. also it says that buzzer is 24/7 game shows and it is NOT 24/7 game shows!!!!!! And there is no way of contacting support to discuss this problem.. wish there was an easier way of contacting you instead of leaving a negative review.. as I watch it in my tablet right now it just went from one game show to another and now it’s buffering this is getting very annoying!!!!! PLEASE FIX THIS PROBLEM AND I WILL GIVE A BETTER STAR RATING!!!! Thank You!!!!
Pluto TV is AMAZING!! 🤩
by TimmoJulz on 2021/02/05 09:37
When I first tried PlutoTV, I loved everything about it. The design interface, the amount of ads wasn’t overbearing & it was an altogether better experience than Spectrum offered. So much so that I ditched them as my TV provider. There was one caveat, however. I noticed that some of the commercials being ran were racially insensitive, politically biased against Democrats, supported the worst leader in American history (Traitor Trump), perpetuated the election fraud “Big Lie” that led to domestic Terrorists’ siege on our nation’s Capitol & spread hateful disinformation about the Black Lives Matter movement. For this, I initially gave PlutoTV a 1-star review & recommended people to avoid the app. THEY LISTENED & THEY’VE CHANGED!!! They have changed for the better! They actually listened to the input of their viewing public & chose to move in a direction suitable for everyone. No alienation. Zero intolerance. Nothing but one AMAZING app that anyone who loves TV can be proud to use without fear of discrimination from advertising groups of inequality. It is one of my FAVORITE apps &, IMO, honestly one of THE BEST apps EVER on the App Store. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR & SUPPORT THIS APP! What are you waiting for? GET IT!!! 😎
A great variety of channels! A lot of nostalgia too
by aquariusxx on 2020/01/05 20:11
I love Pluto tv. I don’t even remember where i heard of it but once i downloaded i was instantly pleased. They have a bunch of channels with show from the 90s & early 2000s. I find myself watching the shows mostly from the early 2000s. For example: the beginning seasons of mtv cribs, the old nickelodeon cartoons, Laguna beach, & many more. Having these channels with Pluto tv is a great addition. They have new content as well. I don’t use it as my everyday tv but i do use it enough that i would highly recommend it! I almost never have trouble with this app. Occasionally i have a buffering issue even when my internet is up to speed but after maybe 2 times it clears up on its own.
GET MORE CLASSIC TV SHOWS!!!
by FreddieRey on 2020/07/23 03:36
I almost love this app , I want to love it, but there’s too much reality crap content. I wish they had a lot more reruns from the 1950’s - 1970’s and old movies like Turner classic types. Although I like Drag Race and antiques roadshow UK is brilliant!! They had one day at a time but removed it. BRING IT BACK!!! Even though they repeat the same shows over and over EVERY DAY. Please add more!!!! It has No live TV . The news channels are not great. Get stuff like Leave it to Beaver , family affair, I love Lucy etc.. please! when I first used this it buffered constantly and was unusable. It’s much better now. I’ll keep checking on it to see if they make improvements. Then I’ll change my review. I still have hopes for this app. It’s a great idea , it’s just got so little content. Like I said they rerun the same 5 episodes over every day. On every channel. But I’m hoping eventually it will get much better.
Fantastically Free
by FräuleinV on 2018/08/14 09:12
I stumbled across Pluto TV checking out a paid streaming TV service. While I will admit I wish I had AMC, that isn’t the point to Pluto. They deliver a variety of live content and I’d say there is most likely something for everyone. News fanatics, sports buffs, comedy enthusiasts, movie lovers, and even cartoons for both the young and the young at heart. I haven’t had any trouble streaming on the app (iPhone) but to my amazement there is also a Vizio app! The Vizio app works fairly well small bugs here and there but the entire service is free! No sign in required on the Vizio app although I would love the option so it knows my iPhone app preferences. All in all, I really don’t have any actual complaints. Pluto keep up the good work!
No search function
by Gabblebabbi on 2020/04/08 03:30
I do really like Pluto TV and what it does have to offer, but the fact that it doesn’t have a search function is a HUGE problem. There isn’t even a “continue watching” function in case you paused the movie for too long. Oh, and it even goes back to square one on the main menu if it’s paused for just long enough to show the screensaver on the fire stick. I hate to complain about a free streaming service, but I can’t understand for the life of me why that means sacrificing the basic conveniences of streaming. I should be able to easily find which movie I wanted to watch, and I shouldn’t be trapped into watching it all the way through if I don’t want to be booted out of it to the main menu. Commercial breaks are plenty enough to punish your viewers for free service, don’t turn them all away by intentionally making this a pain.
Great app but....
by Soul's Ladybug on 2018/01/22 19:08
This is a great app the only thing that's missing is the ability to pause what you're looking at. You get no warning when the commercials coming on your looking at your show when boom the commercial drops in. Don't look for local channels here there are none a great group of programming they must have had me in mind when the put everything into categories instead of the usual hunting and looking! Just downloaded today no sign in no account the app opened to the movie Yentl playing besides not being able to pause this is a good selection for a free app! Has sports, comedies, news, has a great radio selection, along with a few other categories you'll find you love! If anything changes I'll be back......!!!!
Registration of User is a Hard Thing to do!
by Papadaddys57 on 2020/07/07 19:44
I like the Ap! My problems happen when I try to register with Pluto! The other problem I previously had was the Ap staying connected to my WiFi and using data, even as I slept. Even with my Samsung 7 series Flat Screen, registration is still a chore unfinished, so I simply work with the available features. Don’t get me wrong on this, but overall, the Application gives you a lot of channels and movies to watch. So far, my best remedy for the problems has been to delete the app and download it again! Must be worth something to me because here I am again,...”Failed To Register With Little, or no responsive customer support?” My current O.S. Is the IPad Pro with the latest Apple has to offer!
Update a disaster: Totally screwed up channel grid
by Tominpaine on 2020/03/19 15:05
How could they be so stupid in an update to take 250 channels and get rid of the channel numbers? How could anyone think that’s an improvement? More proof that tech people and execs know how to write html and program but are ignoramuses when it comes to how people use it. The app used to have the channels numbered, color coded and with channel logos making it easy to find and scroll to. With this idiotic moronic update these idiots removed the channel numbers, removed the color coding and channel logos making everything tiny black and white type giving everyone eye strain trying to find the channels and making it harder to jump back and forth between multiple channels. Stupid beyond belief. It’s like the executives there and app designers never heard of the term graphic design,art direction or form follows function. Beyond idiocy.
Same Episodes
by Amazing Jana 🌟💁🏽‍♀️🌈🎨 on 2020/01/13 03:46
I watch Nick on Pluto TV and it’s really amazing because they have old shows from Nick, including older episodes of Spongebob and Fairly OddParents, but the problem is that most shows have the same episodes and I’ve probably watched the same episode of a show three days in a row, which is ridiculous on my part because I don’t watch Nick on my cable anymore and I was very happy when I saw this app because it has Nick. I really hope you can fix this problem and I recommend you putting up newer episodes and newer shows like the Loud House and the Casagrandes. I would also like it if you added CatDog on there as well because it’s one of my favorite 90’s cartoons. I really love your app and keep up the good work!
What a waste of time!
by I hate to be a bother but... on 2019/08/21 03:38
I got this app because it airs “Midsomer Murders”, which is one of my favorite shows from the UK. However it has been nothing but a massive disappointment. I have had to delete it about five times in the hopes that when I downloaded the app again the problems would have worked themselves out. But, NOOOO! I have yet to watch a single episode of “Midsomer Murders” in its entirety because the picture freezes or the sound goes silent, (although never when the commercials come on). I would also like to mention that when the show isn’t freezing or going dead silent the few episodes where the climax is about to reveal the “who did it” the credits start to roll. I’ll be honest with you when I tell you I have not watched any other channel that is part of Pluto so I do not know if this issue is channel-wide. If I could give it zero stars, I would, so consider yourselves lucky to get one star.
Very cool but still needs some work
by 47AaronK88 on 2019/03/14 22:08
Would give this a five star review if it wasn’t for the app taking along time to load on the PlayStation Network. Works better on My IPhone SE. It’s great if wanna experience some television of some sort. Although it crashes very, very often and often takes a long time to load. A few new music channels would be great. A real more modern music channels would be cool. A 90s Metal station would be great. A few others would be great but let’s start there. Has some classic movies playing. A few 3-4 year old television programs and sports events. A couple live sporting events and News channels but no weather channel of any sort that I’m aware of. Maybe because they don’t wanna fund separate channels for each state? When they continue to improve these issues my review may get better in the future.
I LOVE IT BUT MY SUGGESTION
by Bsnjay23 on 2019/07/20 19:32
I love Pluto so much and I’m glad it’s free but it’s a suggestion I would like to make now when I’m at home I be watching channels such as Univision TDN or Univision Deportes, Galavision, Univision, Claro Tv, Fox Sports, Televisa, Cartoon Network, Tvc deportes and I see y’all do not have those channels and I’m just asking if y’all can update and put those channels on there because when I’m on the go or on break or something I be missing my shows like La Rosa De Guadalupe, Cómo Dice El Dicho, Amazing world of gumball and I also be missing my soccer games like Liga MX, Liga MX Femenil and even my updates on sports like contacto deportivo so I’m hoping y’all will put those channels on there not for me but for any other hispanic or person who also love these channels thank you
Please work on it
by Dawsy308 on 2020/10/23 19:37
This app will cast to you tv with no problem. Trouble is there is no search feature to look for a specific video, you have to hunt for what you want and if you have to leave your video for some reason when you come back later there isn’t a resume feature either. You have to start your video from the beginning. And all controls have to be operated through your phone, all my other apps once I have a video running I can control volume, pause and restart with my tv remote. Which is a very good feature. Try pausing a video when a phone call comes in. Good luck with that. Another problem was I was watching a movie cast to my tv when all of a sudden the movie started playing on my phone, and at a different place. This app needs a lot of work to competitive with apps like Tubi or peacock.
Absolutely worthless
by fhyvdbibfghinbvvbklogdee on 2020/05/06 19:00
I downloaded the app because I was told it would have old school cartoons and shows that aren’t on demand like Spongebob and Fanboy and Chumchum. I got myself excited and comfy just to be forced into watching a show that’s airing on tv atm. There’s no way to close out of the show and browse peacefully and I hated it immediately. That wasn’t the worst part however, it also has absolutely no search bar or any decent way to find the show you’re looking for. The most you can hope for is that they’ve categorized it in the section you think it would be in, but even then they more than likely did not. I don’t see a point in having everyone be forced to browse through movies and tv shows without being able to search and watch what they want. In conclusion this app is worthless and I hope you will take these things into consideration before downloading.
The BEST App!! (to me)
by nUcleScratch on 2018/01/07 00:41
I’ve come across a lot of movie apps and have seen a lot of movies but this Pluto TV app takes the cake! There are so many movies, some are mainstream and some are not. Don’t expect movies right out the theater but you will get a great variety. There are commercials but I don’t even care, it keeps it real. The best thing is that when I pick the app, Bam! I hear and see a picture, it allows me scroll through and decide what I want to watch AND it instantly plays. Plus there is a Live TV section with a guide of what is playing, Whoa! Don’t rely on my words alone, try it out. I dare you, I triple dog dare you. See for yourself. Everybody has they’re own opinion, I gave you mine. Thanks Pluto TV..Keep up the great work!
Best in Class
by iTorpedo on 2018/12/17 11:27
... and better than some pay apps. Slicker working than Prime and way slicker than DTVN. No bugs and easy AirPlay. Lots of great content ALL FREE. I’ll gladly watch commercials to avoid fees and this app doesn’t kick you off when ads play. Just like old school TV in that way. Some really cool radio stations are also available but the fact that screen must stay on to play radio lost it a star. That’s the only thing I can see that needs fixing. Highly recommended. (Also a settings option to stop auto-play upon opening app would be a welcome feature). UPDATE DEC 2018: Suddenly not able to normal AirPlay to older Apple TV. Works fine on 4K Apple TV with downloaded app. AirPlay to older used to work and now gives an error. Pluto website says to screen mirror which I’m not bothering with. Minus 2 stars for less user friendliness and I’ll AirPlay something else on the older TVs.
