Pluto TV Adding Huge New Content Package

Pluto TV Logo

Do you ever wonder if CBS merged with Viacom Just to get Pluto TV. The free streamer has been front and center in the Paramount Inc media strategy where it houses classic TV and dedicated channels built around current hits. With media partners from all over the spectrum of online entertainment, Pluto TV has seemingly cemented itself in the cord-cutting community as a go to service.

Pluto TV recently announced an all-new supersized installment containing thousands of hours of classic hit episodes and series from the CBS vault will be landing on Pluto TV by year’s end.  Tapping into the CBS library and the huge reach of America’s Most Watched broadcast network, audiences will now have unprecedented access to over 6300 new, classic episodes available to stream on-demand – tripling the amount of CBS series currently available on-demand on Pluto TV.

And debuting soon, nine all-new all-time greats like Cheers, Frasier, Star Trek and more will premiere across select Pluto TV original channels with the hit CBS crime dramas Criminal Minds and new seasons of Hawaii-Five-O now available on-demand on Pluto TV.

In just three years’ time, CBS’ residency on Pluto TV has grown from an initial offering of 3 channels to over 40 to-date including over 100 series on the platform featuring best-in-class programming, groundbreaking news, sports, classics, daytime and more. Last year, CBS added the rolling four to Pluto TV, offering the most recent four in-season episodes of prime-time series for viewers to stream on-demand, for free. All of this has resulted in CBS becoming the number one driver of audience engagement and revenue on the Pluto TV platform with even more programming launching over the next few months.

To meet the growing viewer demand, last month Pluto TV spun off two additional CSI channels, CSI: Miami and CSI: New York. Additional CBS programming recently added to Pluto TV linear include NCIS and Criminal Minds as well as a specially curated, branded channel featuring past interviews for the acclaimed, legendary news program 60 Minutes.

New content includes:

  • Cheers (Sitcom Legends)
  • Star Trek: The Original Series (Star Trek channel)
  • Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (More Star Trek channel)
  • Have Gun – Will Travel (Westerns TV channel)
  • The Wild Wild West (Westerns TV channel)
