The James Bond Channel (channel 007) -- launching on Pluto TV 9/1/19

https://deadline.com/2019/08/pluto-t...ch-1202708426/

EXCLUSIVE: Pluto TV, the ad-supported live streaming offering owned by Viacom, has lined up its latest pop-up channel: Pluto TV 007, a 24/7 streaming network dedicated to James Bond.

Timed to the ramp-up of interest in the super-spy ahead of No Time to Die, the 25th installment in the franchise due out on April 8, the channel will offer 18 Bond films in heavy rotation. The channel is slated to go live on Sunday.

The 007 channel was made possible through a licensing arrangement Albert R. Broccoli’s EON Productions and MGM.

Interesting, I’ll have to check that out. But as of now, the only place to see them in 4K is iTunes - is that correct? Until the UHD’s come out.

There has been a James Bond channel on Mobdro for ages.

Nice too see legit streaming services stealing the idea's of others. Joking,of course.

I’ll stick to the digital HD with no stupid ads. I mean playing them over and over everyday? I don’t get it...

Well like the article says, it's a build-up to the next movie. Personally I loved the 30 Days of Bond back in the day, but I'm happy with the digital to tie me over until the 4K's are out.

If you want to watch your Bond movies ad free, just pop in your DVDs or BDs or click on your digital copies.

This is meant for someone who is "channel surfing" on Pluto and say happens to see "A View to a Kill" on and then wants to leave it on. If you're OCD and hate ads then this obviously isn't for you. This is a "Live" TV channel and is on an ad supported platform.

The problem with Pluto is that the ads are so obnoxious. The ad breaks are randomly placed, often in the middle of a scene. And they're too frequent and too long.

If it was more like Vudu with less commercials and proper ad placement, I'd use it.

On a side note, anyone that likes Pluto should check out XUMO. It's very similar.
