For example, some content available on Pluto TV that you should not miss if you like the series:
- Halt and Catch Fire It is another of the series that you can follow on the same channel mentioned above from AMC. If you like the world of technology, the beginnings of the computer age, video games, etc., you must see it yes or yes because you are going to love it
- The walking dead AMC’s popular zombie series is available on Pluto TV. It is true that there are only the first five seasons, but for many they were the best. So if you see that the series hooks you, you will find where to continue with the rest
- The Baywatch (Baywatch) is one of those mythical series of the summer and although it is already ending, if you dare, it will surely entertain you as many of us were entertained long ago in the afternoons
- Star trek one of the mythical sagas of space adventures that you can also enjoy here on Pluto TV.
Along with this there are also numerous movies on demand what can you see. Some interesting ones that we have seen in the catalog:
- Flyboys, tells of the adventures of the Lafayette Airlift Squadron, where young American volunteers enlisted in the service of the French air forces before the United States entered World War I.
- Gods and monsters, an account of the last days of the Frankenstein author, James Whale
- Valkyrie, starring Tom Cruise, tells the story of how a group of high-ranking German commanders plan to end the life of Adolf Hitler
- Beast of Burden, starring Daniel Radcliffe, tells the story of Sean who only has one hour to deliver an illegal cargo while convincing a cartel, hitman and the DEA while piloting his plane

- Road tells the story of an apocalyptic world in which you must travel with your son in search of a safe place to live. The protagonist is Viggo Mortensen.
Still, these are small brush strokes that we give you, but there is much more. It is true that some are films with a few years behind them, but it is still worth it because there are very good films that never hurt to see again or for the first time if you did not do it before.
It is also important that you know that depending on the country some channels may or may not be available, which affects the content that can be seen or not. Likewise, all this is changing and what is now in a few months will not and vice versa.
Deserves the full Pluto TV
If you wonder if Pluto TV is worth it, the answer is yes. First of all because it is free. And the issue of ads is not a nuisance in itself. Although you do have to take into account some details.
When talking about channels, one can think of the classic idea of a channel where they broadcast different content at certain times. That here has a bit of a “catch”. Because there are channels like AMC’s that do have different series like The Walking Dead or Halt and Catch Fire. However, there are other “channels” that are really a series, such as The Invisible Girl.
Despite all this, in general the Live and On Demand catalog has great series, movies and programs that you will surely like and, at the very least, have a much more enjoyable time.
