Not exactly but it's not a fun experience.

You forget what the movie is about because there are so many commercial breaks.

Re: Pluto TV (Roku) - "The best channel you're not yet watching"

Yeah when I first started watching Pluto TV on the XBOX 360 there were no ads and it was just a weird collection of Niche Channels. MST3k, Riff Traxx, SHOUT, etc. Then the ads started creeping in. Hey, they gotta make money...but still. Anyway, now it feels a lot more like a mainstream cable channel...with channels. Oh well, I still watch it...

And they still have the annoying habit of randomly inserting commercials, sometimes in the middle of a sentence. I like flipping through channels for something to watch but I guess I have to get used to picking out something on Amazon Prime instead.

Since I quit cable over a year ago, one of the things I missed the most was MSNBC. Pluto has an NBC News channel that provides the recommended daily allowance of Trump-bashing.

I wish I were still young enough to make use of the Eye Candy channel that shows Kaloopy videos 24/7 for its intended purpose. Oh, to have had this around when I was a teenager!

Yes the way the ads just pop up so randomly is crazy, and the repetition of the ads gets irritating, but it's free programming.

Eye Candy is a great channel. And the music is pretty good too

Re: Pluto TV (Roku) - "The best channel you're not yet watching"

Pluto recently added a bunch of channels pulling content from Viacom's cable offerings: MTV Pluto TV, BET Pluto TV, Comedy Central Pluto TV, Nick Pluto TV, Nick Jr. Pluto TV, Comedy Central Stan Up, MTV The Hills, MTV Dating, MTV Teen, MTV Guy Code, Spike Pluto TV, Spike Outdoors, CMT Westerns, Paramount Movie Channel

I tuned into the Comedy Central channel this evening. It was nice to watch Kroll Show, which I hadn't seen in years. But damn, they inserted a LOT of ad breaks. (I don't know why I expected these channels to be different than Pluto's others. Ha.)
