Pluto TV today announced the launch of its free Video on Demand (VoD) offering. This new feature adds to the 100+ curated, lean-back television channels enjoyed by more than 6 million Pluto TV viewers each month. Like Pluto TV’s lean-back television channels, the VoD offering is powered by premium content partnerships with major networks, studios, and digital media brands. Premium content providers such as Lionsgate, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM), and Warner Bros., among others, will power the new VoD offering with content that includes 1000s of hit movies and TV shows. Pluto TV viewers will have free access to movies like MGM’s Silence of the Lambs, The Usual Suspects, Species 1, 2, and 3 and Paramount Pictures’ Vanilla Sky, as well as complete TV shows like Lionsgate’s ALF, and Warner Bros.’s The Ben Stiller Show and Super Fun Night whenever they want.
“We are always striving to deliver the best curated entertainment offerings to our viewers,” said Tom Ryan, CEO of Pluto TV. “Over 6 million viewers enjoy our lean-back offering of more than 100 live, interest-based channels. We’re excited to give them even more ways to enjoy the content they love, and now they can pick specific movies and TV shows to watch on demand. Both options are curated and completely free.”
The new VoD offering will feature movies such as Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, The Birdcage, Charlotte’s Web, Thelma & Louise, Mad Max, The Hours, Defiance, The Kite Runner, Dances With Wolves, Paulie, Cirque Du Soleil: Worlds Away, and Lars and the Real Girl. It will also offer TV shows such as Fear Factor, American Hoggers, I Love New York, The Dead Zone and Paranormal State.
In addition to 100+ channels of programming, viewers can now enjoy the Video on Demand offering by accessing Pluto TV in the living room (Amazon’s Fire TV, Roku, Android TV, Chromecast, Smart TVs including Vizio, Hisense, and Sony, and gaming consoles such as PS4), on the go (apps for iOS, Android, and Amazon), at their fingertips on PC and Mac, or on the web at www.Pluto.TV.

These are in addition to content deals already in place with providers such as Paramount Pictures, Fremantle, Endemol Shine International, Yahoo!, CNBC, Cheddar, and Mashable.
