Pluto TV to appear in LG Channels experience

Free streaming service, Pluto TV, is now available on 2020 LG TV Smart TVs.

Pluto TV announced a global distribution deal with LG Electronics today.

Pluto TV channels currently appear on LG smart TV models (2020) in the U.S. Software updates will roll out to 2016-2019 models in Fall 2020, the company said.  

Pluto TV will be available through the LG Channels experience — LG’s proprietary feature. It offers access to over 200 free streaming channels including movies, shows, breaking news, sports and comedies. Once fully integrated later this year, more than 99 Pluto TV channels will be available on LG smart TVs.

“In the highly unusual times we are living in, people are turning to home entertainment in even larger numbers than ever before,” Matt Durgin, director of North America Partnerships at LG Electronics said in a statement.  “With the debut of Pluto TV on LG smart TVs, our customers now have access to an even more expansive and diverse roster of free streaming content that will keep everyone entertained and engaged at home.”

Pluto TV delivers 100,000+ hours of free, premium content to an audience of over 24 million monthly active users in the U.S. alone. 

More free shows and movies for LG Smart TVs

With this new global distribution deal, LG customers will have access to hundreds of channels and tens of thousands of titles on demand featuring content from over 200 major media partners, launching just in time for the arrival of a new slate of programming that includes 40 award-winning CBS and Comedy Central properties.

Expansion plans to other regions will be announced at a later date.  Pluto TV currently has a global footprint spanning 22 countries across three continents.
