Why has no one told me about pluto.tv? It rivals shoutfactorytv.com for vintage TV!


Recommended Posts

I had no idea such a thing existed!

It has a channel that plays old Doctor Who (1st-7th Doctor) episodes 24/7.

It skips all the incomplete stories (no recons, telesnaps, or animated episodes*) but is still pretty amazing fun for no money!


Unlike Shout, it is dealer's choice, not on demand, but still wonderful background entertainment. It has ads -- usually for other Pluto channels -- but not egregious amounts. They're just a bit strange in the timing. (I suspect an AI inserts the breaks.)

It's rather like PBS in the good old days, without the fundraising guilt marathons.

Other channels run Mission:Impossible, Addams Family, Twilight Zone, and Bob Ross.


Anyway, my friends have been keeping this a secret, so I thought I'd share.


Edited to add:

* And yet here I am, partway through Shada, a partially animated story!

uh. there is an On demand part.

check out https://pluto.tv/en/on-demand/movies/5bc8ad8e60d90d9795a0ce0e/details


But if you want Super Sentai, Ultraman and Kamen Rider, then Shout has that on demand https://shoutfactorytv.com/tv/tokushoutsu

Of course, you could just kick back with some Gerry Anderson https://shoutfactorytv.com/tv/gerry-anderson-collection


and Shout does have it's live channels https://shoutfactorytv.com/live-channels


I haven't really bothered with the Pluto TV yet, I don't know if it has commercials like Shout or the CW app have.


But when it comes down to it, I'm too busy with City of Heroes when I'm down in front of a video screen these days... in the game or here in the forums.


I figured I'd shill for the other guys.


If someone posts a reply quoting me and I don't reply, they are most probably on ignore.

Some of them even know that I have them on ignore.

But that won't stop some of them from bullying and harassing people, because some of them love to do it.

It's who they are. There is a group of them that have banded together to do it. They think that it is acceptable.

Ignore is a tool to improve your gaming experience. Don't feel bad about using it.
