What is Pluto TV, and how can I watch it?

Pluto TV is a free American Internet television service. Owned by ViacomCBS, it provides video-on-demand programming, and offers it all for free to its viewers, utilizing advertiser-supported income.

Pluto licenses its content directly from around 170 partners, creating over 250 channels worth of programs. Pushing all of this out using its website and a range of apps, there doesn’t seem to be a shortage of viewing for the 20-million-plus active monthly viewers.

As well as on-demand programs, there are a small selection of live channels, such as Bloomberg and CBSN, but also, there are some of the household name channels that have rehashed content from the previous few days.

You can pick through over 200 channels that include categories for news, sport, comedy, gaming, chill, entertainment, lifestyle, science and documentaries—as well as a range of music and radio channels.

Don’t be surprised if you see something a little different too; Pluto will surprise you with Cats 24/7, Anime All Day, Pluto Science, and Vibes—all more niche than your standard viewing expectations.

Plenty of your favourites provide yet more content to sink your teeth into, yet not necessarily via their usual channel. MTV, Comedy Central, Paramount, NBC News, CNN and many more big names, all contribute programs to those you’ll find on Pluto.

The movie channels are also themed by genre; with names like Pluto movies, Flicks of Fury or Horror 24/7, you’ll soon be able to work out which are your most likely cinematic favourites.

How can I watch Pluto TV with StreamLocator?

Pluto TV has streaming services in the USA, Europe and Austria. Each location is governed by programming rights held by the broadcasters. Pluto prevents you from accessing the countries, it doesn’t want you to, and with it, their protected programs and channels.

To access all of the superb US Pluto TV content, StreamLocator will make their servers think you’re exactly where they need you to be.

No complicated settings or software installation required

Unlike other methods and workarounds, StreamLocator doesn’t require you to install any software onto your devices or change their settings to switch DNS servers and locations. Our smart router takes care of everything you need—and for all of your devices.

However you usually connect to the Internet, you can continue without any trouble. StreamLocator works with your Apple or Android smartphone or tablet, your games consoles, laptops and personal computers. It also provides access for TV systems, including Roku, Chromecast, Android TV, Apple TV, and Amazon Fire TV, as well as all brands of Smart TV.

Plug our smart hub into any port of your WiFi router. There are a few simple steps to create your account, but once you’re done, connecting to all that international content is child’s play.

It won’t affect your online or offline usage, your network speeds won’t be affected, and you can connect as many devices to it as you like, with each of them connected to a different service in a different country if that’s what you need.

How to watch Pluto TV from outside the USA

Pluto TV uses geolocation blockers to prevent viewers outside the USA (or the preferred location) from watching restricted content.

VPN software or Smart DNS are the most common methods to circumnavigate location issues. They help to hide your location and provide an alternative option to the server that needs it.

StreamLocator adapts and innovates these techniques, adding a few clever tricks of its own. That’s what makes it unique, and without doubt, the best option to access all location restricted TV content.

How to register for Pluto TV from outside the USA

Once StreamLocator has switched your location, you can access as much of Pluto TV as you need. There are some handy extra functions to gain by registering, easily done now you’re in the right country, but you don’t have to if you don’t want to.

Do you need a VPN or DNS to watch Pluto TV from outside the USA?

Working around the different server’s geolocation blockers requires a technical workaround. VPN or DNS are the most typical methods, and you’ll find plenty of suggestions to which you should choose. Some options will work better with some servers, and some won’t work at all.

StreamLocator is different, and that’s why it’s your best bet for every service. Our unique router uses every kind of tech needed to allow access to restricted or blocked content. It does it all automatically too, which saves you from headaches and frustrating problems.

That’s why it’s so good.

VPN is a great way to protect your data and devices when you’re using shared public networks. Café, airport, bar and restaurant WiFi can leave you vulnerable to hackers and data-snoops, but when it comes to accessing international content from home, there’s only one choice.

StreamLocator talks to the Pluto TV servers and organizes exactly what’s needed. Your connection is at the router point, so you don’t have to do anything to your computer, phone, console or tablet, apart from switch over to the StreamLocator network from your usual WiFi option.

How to unblock Pluto TV

Plug the StreamLocator router box into your WiFi router, follow the simple instructions to set up your account, and that’s it. Your new StreamLocator network is available and with it a host of content from all over the world.

Does StreamLocator allow me to watch Pluto TV for free?

Of course. We wouldn’t dream of adding a charge to a free service. We’re here to make your life easier, after all. Pluto TV is yours for free, wherever you are, and whichever geographical location you choose to access.
