Pluto TV announced the launch of the “McLeod’s Daughters” channel today. The new addition, Ch. 373, gives 24/7 access to the Australian drama, which follows a pair of estranged half-sisters who inherit their father’s ranch.
Pluto TV has been on an expansion streak. Last week, the service was host to a marathon of the premiere episode of CBS All Access’ “Star Trek: Picard.” Just yesterday, ViacomCBS announced Pluto TV will launch in Latin America come March. Pluto TV will offer content in Spanish and Portuguese and will launch with 24 channels, with the goal to get to 100 by end of the year. The company also revealed they will launch Pluto TV Brazil at the end of 2020.
