“With our pop-up channels dedicated to specific shows, we set a new standard for binge-watching at Pluto TV,” explained Olivier Jollet, managing director Pluto TV Europe. “The market for live streaming television over the internet has heated up in recent months across Europe, and our channels create a great environment for viewers to tune in and relax, for free. Pop-up channels also provide a dedicated space for greater and more prolonged engagement making it the perfect environment for audiences and advertisers alike.”

The new shows are Fear Factor, Ice Pilots, Forensic Files, Ghost Dimension and Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D.

Said to be a long-time reality TV behemoth Fear Factor, introduced the world to huge set piece reality stunts all in a competitive environment while Ice Pilots follows the adventures of the men of Buffalo across the wilds of Canada. Ghost Dimension is said to bring another kind of thrill to the UK bringing ghost hunting to a whole new level touring haunted houses all over Great Britain. True crime classic Forensic Files looks at real-life cases accompanied by commentary of professionals in their field and re-enactments of scenes. The card game inspired anime series Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s has garnered a dedicated international following.

New channels joining Pluto TV’s regular line-up include branded channel The Asylum, bringing content from the company behind classic ‘mock-busters’, mutant animal spectaculars, disaster flicks and more to UK screens and thematic curated channels Pluto TV Comedy and Pluto TV Romance.
