Pluto TV Is Celebrating Thanksgiving

Pluto TV Logo

While everyone seems to be jumping headlong into Christmas programming Pluto TV this week has announced a Thanksgiving-based program block. Not every selection is about the holiday itself but in the tradition of marathons and programming blocks, Pluto TV is recreating a traditional TV experience by flipping through the channels to find something to help you digest the feast Pluto TV has built up a compelling lineup of movies including a collection of films featuring America’s dad, Tom Hanks.

If you want to shake things up Medea/Tyler Perry will be bringing it with a collection of funny/heartfelt movies. Pluto TV will also bring you into the spirit with the quintessential Thanksgiving movie, Planes Trains And Automobiles.

Thanksgiving of course is also about the meal. And Pluto TV has you covered there as well with fun food content.
