Pluto TV launches on Android

Viacom’s Pluto TV has announced a major expansion to Android devices.

The free-to-view streamer is now available through the Google Play Store in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the UK.

The news follows a similar announcement from earlier this month that saw the AVOD added to Apple’s iOS.

Users will have slightly different content offers based on their location. The service in Germany, Austria and Switzerland offers a line-up of over 30 thematically-curated channels, including Pluto TV Movies, KultKrimi and recently launched Comedy Central Pluto TV and Comedy Central – Made in Germany. The UK offer includes more than 60 channels, showcasing a wide variety of indie and mainstream movies, factual entertainment and crime content on channels such as Pluto TV Movies, Pluto TV Indies, Pluto TV Inside and Pluto TV Crime. 

Olivier Jollet, managing director Europe at Pluto TV said: “We are proud of the lean back experience Pluto TV provides for users watching our content on the TV screen and are able to reach even more viewers via Android TV. But as today’s media consumption diversifies, premium video content is not only consumed on the big screen 

“With the launch on Android tablets and mobile devices, Pluto TV is available right in our user’s pocket and fans can tune in at every opportunity – may they be at home on the couch, on their daily commute or at their holiday destination.”
