Google announced in a blog post yesterday a new partnership with Pluto TV to bring over 300 free TV channels to devices running the Google TV platform in the US. The new channels will appear in the “Live” tab on the Google TV home screen in the next weeks.
What is Pluto TV
Pluto TV is a free streaming service owned by ViacomCBS, which is the parent company of several popular film companies and television production networks. It offers content from networks like Comedy Central, AMC, Nickelodeon and MTV through live video streaming channels and on-demand functionality. That is without a monthly subscription fee. Instead, Pluto TV makes money off the advertising it is able to sell during these streaming broadcasts.
“This new integration with Pluto TV will be available on all Google TV devices in the coming weeks,” Google noted in its blog post. So you might want to sit tight and wait if it’s not available on your device right now.
The Mountain View company is also offering a couple more Google TV perks, such as six months of free Peacock Premium in the US and a variety of ad-supported movies on YouTube.
And if that’s not enough, Google is planning to offer more ways to watch content for free in 2022. Looks like we just have to wait and see what else is coming in the months to come.
