The VOD collection includes content from Lionsgate, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM), and Warner Bros and will be available alongside the 100-plus streamed TV channels that Pluto TV already offers.
“We are always striving to deliver the best curated entertainment offerings to our viewers,” said Tom Ryan, CEO of Pluto TV. “Over six million viewers enjoy our lean-back offering of more than 100 live, interest-based channels.”
“We’re excited to give them even more ways to enjoy the content they love, and now they can pick specific movies and TV shows to watch on demand. Both options are curated and completely free.”
The new VoD offering will feature movies such as Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, The Birdcage, Thelma & Louise, Mad Max, The Hours, Defiance, The Kite Runner and Dances With Wolves.
The TV shows on offer will include Fear Factor, American Hoggers, I Love New York, The Dead Zone and Paranormal State.
Last month, Pluto TV, appointed former NBCUniversal executive, Robert Magdlen, as chief programming officer. In October last year it raised US$30 million (€27 million) in a funding round led by ProSiebenSat.1 Group, which also included participation from Scripps Networks Interactive.
