PlutoTV

Pluto.TV just announced a slew of new channels and content on the platform, all from major digital content companies including Complex Media, Fullscreen, SpinMedia, Popsugar, and HitFix. The new content will cover categories like gaming, fitness, music, news, and pop culture.

Joining videos from the likes of Funny or Die, the Young Turks, and traditional television programs, the following content is now launching on Pluto.TV:

On Complex’s new channel, viewers will find the company’s original series “#TBT,” in which major R&B musicians talk about their careers in the industry. They will also find “In Real Life,” which features Complex’s associate video games editor, Hanuman Welch, seeing how productively his video game tactics apply to his physical surroundings. “First Look,” a music video series, and “Complex News” will also show on the channel.

Fullscreen’s Pluto.TV channel ScrewAttack’s shows will fall under the digital video platform’s gaming and tech section. They include “Evil Craig,” “VideoGame Vault,” “SideScrollers,” “Game Theory,” “Random Awesomeness,” and “DeathBattle!”

HitFix is delivering two original series to Pluto.TV’s Movie Reviews and TV Recaps offerings. “Firewall & Iceberg” showcases TV commentary from critics Alan Sepinwall and Dan Fienberg, while “Ask Drew” stars film critic Drew McWeeny answering viewer questions ad lib on camera.

Pluto.TV is adding a whole Popsugar channel to its platform, making a full slate of programming available to pop culture connoisseurs. One show, “Popsugar Live,” will run daily and include both news and morning workout guides.

Lastly, SpinMedia joins the platform’s Music Backstage Pass and Underground Pulse channels with content from the likes of Spin, Vibe, Idolator, and Stereogum. For example, Pluto.TV watchers can now see the Nas tribute “Illmatic 20 Years Later” and the Hollywood-centric “Movies with Milan” hosted by Milan Carter.

Available on iOS, Android, Google Chromecast, Amazon Fire products, and the internet, Pluto.TV offers constant, free content through channels that take on the feel of cable television. It includes over 100 channels and has its headquarters in Los Angeles.
