I just stumbled onto a new app on my IPad: "Pluto TV"

Here is a link to Pluto TV on wikipedia:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pluto_TV

Quote:
Pluto TV is an Internet-based TV platform operated by Pluto Inc.[1][2] The company was founded in 2013 and is based in Los Angeles, California.[3] Pluto TV runs as an app on 14 platforms,[4] including Apple TV, Android TV, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, Roku, and PlayStation consoles.[5] The company currently has more than 75 content partners, over 100 free channels, and reaches over 6 million monthly active users.[6] Pluto TV generates revenue from video advertisements between programming, with plans to remain a free television provider.[7] Pluto TV's licenses its content directly from providers.[8]


Here is their website:

http://corporate.pluto.tv/

According to their website, their app will play on the following platforms:

Quote:
ROKU
AMAZON FIRE TV
APPLE TV
CHROMECAST
ANDROID
IPHONE
ANDROID TV
SAMSUNG
VIZIO TV
SONY
WEB
MAC
WINDOWS


---------

Here is the greatest point about them (so far):
Channel 264 is "MST3K.
They show old MST3k episodes 24/7.......MSTK3000 around the clock.
Joel, Tom Servo, Crow, riffing off movies around the clock.

Here is the 2nd best item about it:
--It's free. You do get commercials, but its no worse than the commercials that you would get watching in on cable.

The only downside that I have noticed is that occasionally the image will 'stutter' for a few seconds.

That's neat. We have a Roku system tv and I have to say it has been pretty much seamless with respect to Apps. Running an App is as easy as changing the channel used to be.

Well, if you have Roku then you should be good to go!
