Random, but I recently discovered that Pluto TV has a Bob Barker era The Price is Right channel. Kinda fun to watch. Pluto is actually a fun service for something thatís free.

Pluto is ad supported in order for it to be free, so all programs even on demand have commercials.

and Paramount + has as an original series library including Evil, the Star Trek series, The Good Fight etc. and movies that will stream 45 days after theaters. That in addition to their catalog titles.

It's not a great service like HBO Max yet, but it's not just a hub for CBS shows like the previous CBS All-Access.

I know not everyone finds the same kind of value for all these streaming services. If using ad supported Pluto works for you to catch old shows, then awesome for you.

I use Pluto for old shows, and I love it. Just turn on a channel and do an easy marathon.

I think Pluto is pretty cool for what it is. Sure itís ad based, but seeing that itís free it doesnít bother me much. Itís a pretty good little service in my opinion. I like their specialty channels various programs (Star Trek, The Price is Right, etc.).

If it's just something I'll watch in the background while I'm doing something else, I'm ok with the commercials as is. But if it's something I actually want to watch (like Tokushoutsu) it's super, super annoying.

Was it a Roku-only app initially? Not that it's a big deal but the thread title might need to be edited.

It was added to LG TVs and recently most of its channels were added to the main internet channels (previously just from Xumo, now with both) that appear with the off-air stations.

Same. The only annoying thing is I wish there was more variety in the commercials, if I'm watching several episodes of a show, I will see the same commercial several times. Also, in the case of the Price is Right, I've had the end of the show cut off.

Hadn't checked out any new channels but came across ones for both Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune.
