Viacom-owned ad-supported VOD service Pluto TV is expanding to Apple devices in Europe.
The Pluto TV app, which includes access to more than 30 channels featuring movies, MTV, and TV sitcoms, is now available in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
Viacom acquired San Francisco-based Pluto earlier this year for $340 million in cash.
“Our goal is to entertain the planet and reach audiences where they are, be it at home on the TV screen or on the go on their mobile device”, Olivier Jollet, managing director Europe at Pluto TV, said in a statement. “Launching on Apple TV and Apple mobile devices in German speaking markets and the U.K. is the perfect way to do so, since we are now additionally providing our lean-back experience to millions of Apple users.”
Pluto TV earlier this year said it had surpassed 18 million monthly users.
