The first exclusive free TV premiere on Pluto TV, Neil Ben's Puppy Time, a documentary following a litter of puppies, will kick off the channel launch. The programme, Signature Entertainment’s first non-scripted production, will run as a 72-hour marathon.

“I am so excited to share Puppy Time to Pluto TV audiences across the UK and Germany”, said director Neil Ben. “Inspired by being a lifelong dog lover and owner of a rather bonkers King Charles Spaniel, there is something rather special about being around puppies, just before they go to their ‘new’ homes and I hope other dog lovers and families will enjoy it on-screen as well.”

Available to all European markets, The Adventures of RoboRex adds a sci-fi twist to a family-friendly story of bonding over an untimely loss.
