Pluto TV - It’s Free TV review
There is a cornucopia of mobile apps that promise to bring you top-quality TV-entertainment. With High-Definition picture, shows on-demand feature, unlimited number of channels, rich customization, and so forth. However, most of them charge unmercifully big subscription fees.
Pluto TV is a mobile application that claims to fight such injustice and bring quality television to your mobile devices for free. Anywhere, anytime. Movies, both classic and new, TV-series, political debates, analytical shows, news, comedy, cartoons — Pluto TV promises it all. And even more.
The app includes a royal armada of 100+ channels. Among those you will find:
- Pluto TV Comedy.
- Classic Toons.
- Paramount Pictures, exclusively featuring movies produced by that studio.
- Gravitas Movies.
- Cheddar News.
- Bloomberg TV.
- Glory Kickboxing.
- The Pet Collective.
And even a TV channel completely dedicated to Minecraft.
The Pluto project team keeps searching, checking, and adding new channels regularly. So you can slay your boredom anytime with another dosage of costless entertainment.
Pluto TV has a good deal of useful features and an uncluttered, clean interface. The GUI of the application is logically organized and structured, so you won't have to do much head-scratching trying to figure out which button does what.
All the content is divided into categories in the channel Lineup section: Comedy, Drama, Arts & Lifestyle, Geek & Gaming, Memory Lane, etc. Then you get to explore individual channels. On top, the name of the show/movie/series is shown to you together with a short description. And on the right, you can see a trailer, which gives you a better understanding if the show is worth being watched.
As soon as you've made up your mind and hit the play button, the show begins playing instantaneously, unless it needs more buffering time. The app's player has all the basic features: play/pause, mute/unmute, volume control, timeline, etc.
Your viewer's experience isn't limited to watching recorded shows only. Certain channels featured in Pluto TV specialize in Live broadcasts and streaming. And if you're in a mood for just blasting some groovy jams from your phone speakers — there are music-themed channels in Pluto as well: EDM, Hip-Hop, 80's music, and many other genres.
A nice little bonus for all the Avakin Life fans: for using Pluto TV you can be awarded withup to 300 avacoins and more.
Ease of Use
When it comes to practical usage, you can clearly see that Pluto TV is trying to work as well as a free TV application can. It knows how to adjust the picture to various devices: smartphones, tablets, etc. But sometimes you don't get to see the full picture in the landscape mode: it's either much tinier or much bigger.
Second, Pluto TV suffers from the blurry/grainy picture pretty often. And if your mobile connectivity isn't the strongest, at some point your eyes may begin hurting from all the visual noise.
As for the rest, it is a cleverly structured app, the content of which is organized in segments for easier access. It features a very generous array of channels to watch, some of which can provide you with really good stuff to enjoy. Whenever you need a break.
