Pluto TV Review

Take a look at my Pluto TV review video for full details or check out the information below.

The Amazon Firestick is certainly the most popular streaming device on the market right now due to its low price and ability to jailbreak it with just a few simple tweaks. It’s a perfect streaming device for beginners as well advanced users who wish to cut the cord.

Where is Pluto TV Available?

At this time, Pluto TV is available in the US, Canada, Latin America and Europe. If you are not located in any of these locations and want to stream content from this service then you may be able to use a VPN to bypass any location blocks.

Accessing content with Pluto TV through a VPN is also beneficial, even if the service is available in your area. As content varies depending on where you are located, changing your location to the US with a VPN generally unlocks new content.

NordVPN is my recommendation because it has strong unblocking capabilities. If you presently use IP Vanish as your VPN and want to unblock streaming services, I would consider switching to my recommended VPN. Despite IP Vanish being a safe and secure VPN, it does not have very good unblocking capabilities. Furthermore, you will struggle to use streaming services that are based outside of your location.


A VPN is required in order to bypass geographical restrictions on streaming services. By using a VPN you can choose your location and connect to the correct server to overcome streaming blocks. NordVPN especially has excellent unblocking capabilities and can unlock most streaming services, no matter where you are!

The streaming experience is exceptional. Live TV channels stream beautifully, in HD, without any buffering or lag. The only small issue that some viewers might have is the large number of ads.

A great feature if you are using a Firestick or other Fire TV, is that Pluto TV integrates with the Live TV tab that now features on most Fire TV devices. So, you don’t even have to go into the app to start watching any of these great channels, you can just tap over the Live tab and view the channel guide directly from your Amazon home screen.

On Demand

As well as hundreds of live TV channels, on offer are 1,000s of movies and TV shows on demand. Everything from hit movies, to full seasons of your favourite shows are available anytime, on-demand. Available content changes on a regular basis. The following list is an example of what was available to stream at the time of writing this review.

Movies TV Shows
• What's Eating Gilbert Grape • Gomorrah
• Halloween • Hell's Kitchen
• Odd Thomas • Married With Children
• Cruel Intentions • COPS
• Muriel's Wedding • Power
• Toy Soldiers • underbelly
• We Were Soldiers • The Lone Ranger
• Super Size Me • Wahlburgers

Do I Need to Sign Up?

No. As a matter of fact, no account, subscription or signup is required. In other words, everything is free! However, you do have the option to sign up for an account and that is totally free also! Signing up can get you additional benefits such as syncing your favourites and watchlist across devices. Simply entered the required information and hit the Sign Up button.

Where Can I Watch Pluto TV?

Pluto TV is available to stream on most of your devices as an app as well as on any web browser. Simply search your app store for Pluto TV then install it. Or visit the Pluto TV website. Additionally, if you use Kodi, Pluto TV can be found as on addon in the official Kodi repository. 

But if you can’t get Pluto TV from your app store then you may be able to sideload it. In order to do so, your device must be capable of installing apps from unknown sources. Once your device is enabled for sideloading, you can then install the app from my Downloads page.

A VPN is required if you want to bypass geographical restrictions on streaming services. By using a VPN you can choose your location then connect to the correct server to overcome blocks on your streaming. NordVPN especially has excellent unblocking capabilities and can unlock most streaming services, no matter where you are!
