ViacomCBS’ ad-supported online TV service, Pluto TV, has added six channels in the United Kingdom, bringing to 80 channels now offered on the digital platform.
Launched in 2013, Pluto TV was acquired by Viacom earlier this year for $340 million as part of the media company’s aggressive digital distribution push and competitive alternative to Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and Hulu.
Olivier Jollet, managing director Europe at Pluto TV, said the online service has “come a long way” since launching in the U.K. in late 2018.
“We are looking forward for our audience to ending their year with our vast programming and kick-start the new decade with us,” Jollet said.
The new channels include:
Pluto TV Action, which brings adrenaline filled blockbusters, energetic stars, and a strong dose of high-octane excitement.
Pluto TV Sci-Fi, which airs science fiction and fantasy movies that present visions of the future and apocalyptic worlds, as well as the best TV series in the galaxy, available at warp speed, 24 hours a day.
Pluto TV Thrillers, a dedicated thriller channel that does not venture into pure horror — it is for those who prefer chills over scares.
Get.Factual, a channel that takes its audience knee-deep into the unknown. As a dignified finish to a year of providing Pluto TV viewers with a robust offering of unscripted content, Get.Factual brings documentaries with thrilling perspectives about history and culture. Secrets will be exposed, and no question will be left unanswered as this channel covers topics like the story of Australia, the Middle Ages and the ascent of civilization.
Pluto TV Family, which joins Pluto TV’s growing line-up for kids and family, offering animated adventures to classic comedies.
Strongman Champions League World Series is the world’s biggest Strongman league. The strongest and best athletes in the world compete against each other over the course of 16 stages throughout the year. Series 15 and 16 of Strongman will get things started on December 23rd with more series added later.
