Great concept, good start. App still a little buggy. Its a FREE app for FREE live TV (FFS! 😁) so I dont expect a full line-up of top rated channels. So far I've enjoyed MSNBC News, Sky News, ScienceTV, and DocuTVWorks on Pluto. Not bad for a free TV app. Works well most the time with Chromecast. Pluto support has been EXCELLENT. Quick response times, friendly, knowledgeable about issues. Already fixed my #1 issue (not playing in background). THANK YOU! There are also several music channels I haven't even checked out yet. Give it a try!
So far so great! You can use the My Pluto page for personal customization or just open the app! Its about time an app gave us live news streams for free without cable and tv sticks! Stay informed in real time. The music channels play well, clarity and decibels play in near perfect pitch. Please add more music genres.. r 'n b, jazz, conscious hip hop .. thanks!
For an analog grrrl in this digital world, this is fantastic. Easy to use, offers a wonderful variety, and it's free! Now the downside is so minimal; chingos of commercials. Believe it or not, their commercials are not bad. No loud, obnoxious commercials. ..and for the cost (hehe), they are way so tolerable. I even enjoy their insignia of an astronaut floating in space. This app is badass! !!
I have written Pluto 3x to ask a very simple question. I have it working fine on my FireTV, but when I try to use it under my Android TV (running Marshmellow), it starts up in full screen mode, and can't change the channel at all. How do you do it? Surely it's got to be something simple. I have tried to write Pluto at the email given, and gotten nothing. Horrible customer service. Mary@Pluto TV are you reading this?
User friendly, simple interface. Would like to be able to scroll menu more. See what's on later. Loads of content to explore. Downside, every 15-20 seconds, app freezes, sound starts over, image is frozen until sound catches up. Or it will drop whole segments of video, just suddenly skip ahead 5 seconds. Then the commercials come on. No problems there. Those stream perfectly. When the show comes back, it's like a needle on a deeply scratched vinyl record, just bouncing around until it settles. Then it hits the scratch again. A+ for the app, D+ for the service.
EDIT:In the last couple days it randomly freezes & the only way to fix it is to change the channel. It happens on different channels, not a specific channel. Video title & description in the info section don't change a lot of the time either. This only started happening in the last couple days. I have the latest version haven't changed a thing. I use it primarily through chromecast if it matters. Recording has been removed apparently. Music channels are also audio only now unfortunately. NatureVision & Cheddar channels do not cast. Just a black screen on the tv, they play on device fine though. Website doesn't work most of the time lately either.
