What Pluto TV Is

Pluto TV comes with more than 100 live channels as well as thousands of movies from industry leaders such as CBS, NBC, Paramount, Warner Brothers, and Bloomberg. This increases the likeliness of finding something to watch and to kill time whenever you tune in. This service offers free music videos, adventure, comedy, news, health, fitness, DIY, home & garden, and kids programming. So you don’t have to worry about that evening show in case you’re caught up in a traffic as you can still watch it on your iOS or Android mobile device. The myriad of features in the app deserves a 10/10.

Interface

One of the attributes of this Google Android and iOS app that significantly contributes to its general convenience is the interactive and straightforward design. Users, regardless of whether they are first timers or not, will easily find their way within the app and still get loads of entertainment. Notably, the user interface has a similar appearance with an on-screen channel guide used by a majority of satellite TV and cable users. The interface gets a 10/10.

Performance and Usability

Relative to other IPA or APK in the same genre, Pluto TV comes out as one of the best in terms of performance and usability. The ease to navigate and intriguing design significantly contribute to this factor. Moreover, the application works efficiently without lags across all platforms, the attribute that gives the app a lead position in the rather competitive genre. The latest version comes with support for Apple TV, enhanced performance, and additional free movies. On convenience and ease of use, the app scores a 9.5/10.

Cross-platform Use

Pluto TV available as an App Store and Google Play app for iOS and Android respectively. The App Store version requires you to have iOS 10.0 and later, while the Android app varies with the specific device you’re using. Notably, it plays beautifully on the iPad, iPod touch, iPhone, or Android device. The IPA and APK score a 9.5/10 on compatibility.

The Verdict

Overall, Pluto TV comes out as an entertaining TV tool. It may have its own limitations just like other applications in different genres, but more features will be hopefully added and updated in future considering it’s still a new application. Regardless, I still like the app and would recommend it to users who are mostly away from home but still would like to keep up with their favorite TV shows.
