Good service, but app is buggy with offensive commercials 3/5
By Barbatus Unum
While I like the service overall, here are the bugs and issues needing correction (I hope their devs read this):
- On the iPad Pro 10.5 in iOS 11.4, the app hangs every time you press the iPad’s home button. It tries to go into PIP (Picture-in-Picture) but all you get is a small black rectangle (no content displayed). You then have to force-close the app and relaunch it, and you miss some of your live-streamed show or movie while doing this. Yes, the minimization button in the app does work if you happen to remember to tap it first, but I use other streaming apps that go into PIP mode successfully and automatically when you press the home button, so it’s too easy to forget. The app needs to conform with typical usage as it’s currently a bit clunky.
- No pinch-to-zoom feature or expansion button in the main show window, so you can’t expand the show or movie to fill the screen. Would particularly be effective for 4:3 SD content given most iPad screen dimensions. Older SD content is letterboxed on all 4 sides currently, resulting in a much smaller display than should be achieved. Please add these features.
- The Live Guide is too limited. On the iPad, you can only scroll ahead a paltry couple of hours to see what’s coming up to watch. What’s worse, on the Apple TV version of this app, the Live Guide doesn’t even scroll right at all! Can’t plan ahead to properly enjoy the live-streamed content.
- I get that the service is paid for by playing commercials. That said, some commercials are inappropriate and downright offensive. I really don’t want to hear about someone’s colostomy issues over and over while I’m eating and watching a show or movie. Disgusting! I mean - really! Has wrecked several meals for me.
- Also, a number of times, the streamed show keeps playing unseen during the commercial breaks, so you miss part of the show. This is unacceptable. Properly stop the show until the commercials are done.
- Content-wise, it’s a mixed bag. There are some decent movies (albeit older ones) in there, and they just added a dedicated Classic Doctor Who channel (kudos here). The challenge with the latter is that they jump around between the various Doctors and storylines, which is both good and bad. It’s good in that if you don’t like a particular Doctor, the next storyline may be with the one you like better, so you don’t have to suffer through the worse ones for too long. But without a properly functioning live grid guide, you can’t plan out your viewing since the 4-6 episodes per classic story do require a significant time commitment.
This is also where I’ve observed the commercials playing over the actual show. Please fix this!!!
The live grid guide really needs to be expanded to show at LEAST 2-3 days of upcoming content! Other apps go out to display the traditional 14 days so you can plan ahead. So a week’s worth of content or more Is a very reasonable request. Figure it out, please.
It also needs an option to make the grid TEXT much LARGER on the Roku channel app — otherwise you can’t even read it on a much smaller TV at lower resolutions (text is too tiny and fuzzy).
Again, I really like the service overall, but it could be so much better if these app issues were addressed. Come on Viacom (owns Pluto now), if you want to compete in the streaming market, you need to invest some resources into the apps. Pluto is characteristically different from Crackle and Tubi, but the user experience is still somewhat lacking. UX is critical!
Search Bar?? 4/5
Great app, it has a lot in it, and they aren’t all old people movies. Buuut~ A search bar would be nice.
By Barbecue kitty
Fantastic app, wish there were a few more options for my kids
Do not download for ps4. Buffers constantly. None of my other apps do it. IE Netflix’s Hulu or or prime
Enjoy the app,the only problem I’m having is overlapping audio. I’ve tried different movies with same results.
Last be watching the same ads over and over 2/5
I’m impressed by this application however I’m shutting it down due to the repetition of advertisements the same with their descendants six or eight times every hour, and it’s nice t something I am interested in.
edit channels? 1/5
what’s the point of editing channels when all hidden channels show up on all activated devices?
It’s Free 5/5
By Told Ya So
😂😂😂😂 people are complaining about something free😂😂😂😂 if it’s too many ads pay for actual cable and STILL watch ads. If it buffers a lot it’s probably your internet being garbage and not the app. Ignorance is bliss.
BEST TV APP 5/5
I love this app so much it has my favorite movies that I watched as a kid it’s almost better than Netflix AMAZING APP
Tv Pluto 2/5
By Brian Monayong
The misdemeanors of pain, pleasure and passion are administered through the coming grips of human ambition and pleasurable desire.
I just discovered Pluto TV and it is the best. Thank You....
Love the app but... 3/5
I love the app and programs/channels but having favorites is useless. I make sure I am signed in, check that my favorites are marked, but when I go back to the listings my favorites have disappeared. I hope they fix this glitch.
Use to be good 3/5
Ok so when I got this for the first time I thought it was good until I found out that Nickelodeon in your app passes the same show episodes everyday.
Needs Favorites/Hidden channels 2/5
By pk •••
Please add! Love the app but the list is too long!!
Pluto TV 5/5
By allen enriquez
It has about 900 channels! User friendly app similar to that of a $178 channel package line up for free which my favorite part I think TV should be free! I would say it would be great along side with your local antenna to give you those extras, get internet essentials with Comcast for 9.99 a month, or Access by AT&T internet for 10 buck no equipment fees extra this program is for low income people that can’t afford those 60 dollar internet.
Search bar 4/5
Just needs a search bar and it would be perfect
Thank You❤️ 5/5
By my evie eve
Thank you for offering Free Live streaming! You Guys are awesome! The ads don’t bother me at all! I enjoy every bit of Pluto services! Never any issues on my fire stick or on my app! Love you guys a lot. Thank you again and again!😘😘
Yesssss Pluto Yesssss 5/5
By Loud's Mom
I’m loving it give me a few more urban channels and reality channels and I’ll be in heaven
When i get on the app it just shows a black screen.
Channel jumps to another 1/5
By A user when it works
This was great until I tried to watch something for awhile. I would be watching something and it would jump to another channel on my TCL Roku smart tv.
Pluto tv 4/5
This has been the greatest free app I have ever seen. I don’t mine the commercials cause it pay for the free tv. The movies I’ve seen been great childhood shows for me. I really enjoy the app when I’m not at the house. It keeps me entertained while I’m on the road. Once again great app.
TO ANIME NERDS 5/5
By ANIME OBSESSD SQUID
If you love anime like me they have anime all day or child friendly anime witch have the best anime ever I have this on my fire stick and I love it 200 stars out of 5
It’s pretty cool, BUT I feel that they play the same few episodes that I’ve watched over and over.. seems to lag quite a bit and the ads are extremely repetitive
More channels 5/5
By The inquire
Best live tv. Please add some cable channels thanks Pluto!
Pluto is a good app but just one problem 5/5
Pluto fix the “well be right back...” thing because it just cuts out of random and it’s been doing that to me a lot and it’s been getting annoying so Pluto please fix this but this is still a good app
Remote Control App update 5/5
Need better Remote control for TV on the app for example availability to slide to control volume, slide to control channel surfing & availability to type in channel number and favorite section that separates music, TV and movies as well as maybe a picture preview for the iPad only as well as availability to remotely control the Pluto smart TV app from the remote without having to use my smart TV app or my remote control.

Great broad casting
By Dave and son
Great app for being free love msk3000
By WW Loser
Right in middle of movie-soundtrack of earlier portion of movie starts playing. I don’t mind commercial interruptions, but this is worse.
By Dillon Cha
So this app has a favorite option, but when you select your channels to favorite, they automatically get deleted seconds after. You can’t even view your favorite channels without having to scroll all the way up, but even then, your channels that you’ve favorited are already gone. What’s the point of signing up to create favorites if you can’t even create a playlist and navigate them. No menu or settings other than the guide. Only good thing I’ve experienced so far is the free part. Channels could be better, but can’t complain about that since they are free. Overall 2 stars because it is free and there are more channels than I expected. Needs work, but I hope it stays free and doesn’t get overrun with ads revenue.
It’s better than paid tv
It’s great but.... 5/5
I have honestly never written a review before, but this app is amazing! My only suggestion for future updates would be to add a search bar; that way people can easily search in a show or movie they are looking to watch without scrolling and scrolling.
My Pluto 5/5
I adore Pluto Tv...... I especially enjoy the music stations..... If you could add a country music video station, that would be awesome.......
this is your go to app! 1/5
want to watch 2 to 5 commercials every 7 to 9 minutes? then this is your go to app. want dropouts at the hour and half hour? this is your go to app. want to see the same movies for a month in worse repeat fashion than hbo 30 years ago? this is your go to app!
want buffering with your high speed connection? this is your go to app...
you censored my first comment; you’ll have to bury this one too kids! i have more and be glad i don’t run ads in my comments
Horrible ads for kids. 1/5
I let my kids watch the kids shows and add come one about colostomy bags and cold cases. So now I have to delete this app on all of my six devices. There goes their add revenue. You guys need to invest getting more kid friendly style add on the kid channels. I rather pay actual cable tv knowing that the commercials are made for kids.
Great app 5/5
It is a great app for shows that don’t air no more but there is some shows that I would want on it other then that it’s perfect
By Chase Harlan 272737
I was excepting a couple of shows and movies. But when I got this app it had hundreds of tv shows and movies. They had a variety of genres for kids and adults. And for the cost of nothing, this is a very good app!!!
Totally free!! No lag between changing channels. I’m very impressed!!
Awesome app 5/5
By A touch of cali

Pluto TV 5/5
Can you put 90s classic Boomerang similar to 90s classic Cartoon Network and Disney Jr. classic and Toon Disney classic
Can you put Classic Toons from entertainment to kids
sound wonky 2/5
i love this app now the sound is wonky. i hear commercials playing in the background of what i am watching. earlier portions of show plays in background. Please fix.
Great app 5/5
Just like watching tv. Lots of channels to choose from. Nice shows and movies. A lot of channels you can’t find or get on cable. Picture is crystal clear and the sound is too. Best is it’s free.
