As regards the former, Pluto TV has expanded its offering in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland launching 24 new channels. Having begun 2020 with a line-up of 45 live channels, Pluto TV has rapidly grown its portfolio to now deliver 75 channels in these three markets.

The new slate of channels includes highlights from categories such as Kids, Curiosity, Reality TV, Sports, and Entertainment. Pluto TV has also welcomed an all-new suite of pop-up channels featuring ViacomCBS’s award-winning IP with brands like SpongeBob Squarepants, iCarly, Blue’s Clues, Victorious, Bubble Guppies, Sam & Cat, and more. Additionally, Pluto TV’s MTV channels Dating and The Hills, as well as Totally Turtles, are now available in English language for German viewers to get the authentic experience in the cast’s native tongue.

This a major step in pushing Pluto TV to the next level.”

As it was making its forays into Europe, Pluto TV Latin America was announcing Estrellas de acción, its first pop-up channel for action movies starring iconic stars. The new channel will be available on Pluto TV live streaming and on-demand sections from 13 May–10 June.
