Pluto TV to Launch Slate of Classic Shows for Thanksgiving
With coronavirus cases spiking again, travel will be limited this Thanksgiving Day, which gives you the time to binge all your favorite shows and Pluto TV has got your back. The ViacomCBS-owned streaming service announced today that they will be launching a slew of channels, starting tomorrow, just in time for Thanksgiving.
The streamer will debut channels for Happy Days, Family Ties, The Love Boat, Wings, The Beverly Hillbillies, Mission: Impossible, Laverne & Shirley, and Mork & Mindy on the platform.
To commemorate the holiday season Pluto TV will also be making a donation to World Central Kitchen to support their ongoing efforts to use the power of food to heal communities and strengthen economies during times of crisis and beyond.
In August, Pluto TV expanded their categories and added 12 new channels to the free streaming service. Some of those include channels dedicated to “Three’s Company”, “The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson” and classic comedies and dramas like “Roseanne” and “Married with Children.”
Earlier this month, ViacomCBS announced that Pluto TV reached 28.4 million monthly active users (up 57 percent year-over-year). The ad-supported service climbed from the 26.5 million they reported last quarter. The streamer is projected to reach 30 million users by the end of the year. The company also revealed that Pluto reached 36 million global monthly active users, up from the 33 million they reported in Q2.
The Pluto TV global expansion is also well underway as ViacomCBS is bringing the streaming service to three new territories—Spain, France and Italy. While Pluto TV was made available in Spain by the end of October, the service won’t begin to roll out in the other two countries until 2021. ViacomCBS plans on launching Pluto TV in France in the first quarter of 2021, according to Variety.
