ViacomCBS’s ad-supported Pluto TV streaming platform is upping its live news content for viewers living in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut — and nationwide.
“News12 New York,” the daily regional news digital network owned by cabler Altice USA, is available for free across all devices and platforms that carry Pluto TV. The network features the latest in local news, top stories, events, community updates and more from across the region.
The network adds to Pluto TV’s growing lineup of news channels, which already includes Altice’s Cheddar News among many others.
“Now, more viewers than ever will be able to tune in to News12’s award-winning content from across the country through Pluto TV’s extensive user base,” said Kristin Malaspina, SVP of marketing and partnerships for Altice News.
Amy Kuessner, SVP of content strategy and global partnerships for ViacomCBS Streaming, said hyperlocal news is an important part of every community, and the partnership would provide Pluto TV’s tri-state viewers free easy access.
“We are proud to continue to expand our local news offerings on Pluto TV with the addition of News12 New York,” Kuessner said.
