TiVo Adds Pluto TV to Content Network


The free streaming service Pluto TV has partnered with TiVo to join its TiVo+ content network with 50,000 hours of programming.

The new pact brings more viewing options to TiVo, promoting ease-of-discovery and one-click access to Pluto TV programming that features more than 250 live, linear, ad-supported channels and thousands of movies and television shows on-demand. TiVo customers will now have access to channels and on-demand content across such categories as news, sports, kids, movies, music, reality, pop culture, cooking, lifestyle, Spanish and e-sports.

Pluto TV will be rolling out in the coming weeks to customers on the TiVo EDGE 4K UHD all-in-one media device, with versions designed to work with HD antenna or digital cable. Pluto TV will also soon become available on the upcoming TiVo Stream 4K device.

Tom Ryan, CEO of Pluto TV, said: “Launching Pluto TV in an integrated way with TiVo aligns perfectly with our goal to provide a friction-free viewer experience with our distribution partners. Today, over 22 million people a month in the U.S. tune in to stream our programming which spans across all genres of movies, news, TV shows, sports and documentaries, and we look forward to reaching many more together as part of the TiVo+ video network.”

Dave Shull, president and CEO at TiVo, added: “We launched TiVo+ because we wanted to bring entertainment together in one easy place for viewers, and this partnership allows viewers to easily discover an awesome array of 50,000 hours of free programming from Pluto TV via TiVo+. Now we can definitively say we’re catering to everyone’s tastes and preferences, making, finding, watching and enjoying something they love easier than ever before.”
