Pluto TV and LG Electronics June 3 announced the expansion of their partnership to offer Pluto’s ad-supported channels on all 2016-21 LG televisions running webOS in select European markets.
The Pluto TV channels were first launched on LG Channels in 2020 in the U.S. market. ViacomCBS acquired Pluto TV in 2019 for $340 million.
With LG TV owners in Germany and the U.K. being the first to access the Pluto TV app earlier this year, consumers in France and Spain can now access the entire library of original and unique channels on their LG monitors.
LG Smart TV owners in the regions can access an extensive selection of movies, from international favorites like Star Trek, Fighting Temptations and The Ring, to local gems like Mientras duermes. A wide variety of series across genres like crime and investigation, cooking, telenovelas and drama will also be available, from “Derrick,” “Ana y los 7” and “Plus Belle La Vie” to “Jamie’s Superfood,” “Midsummer Murders” and “The Hard Times of RJ Berger.”
Pluto TV’s lineup includes selected channels for younger audiences with Nickelodeon shows and animated series such as “SpongeBob SquarePants,” “Dora the Explorer” and “Blue’s Clues,” while audiences will also have a vast range of dedicated lifestyle channels to choose from, spanning gaming, poker, animals, cooking, nature and sports.
