Are you wondering if Pluto TV’s service is free? Indeed, it is! Yes, you’ve definitely read that right. Pluto TV channels are 100% free – no hidden charges, no in-app purchases, and no limits. That said, it’s one of the best options as a replacement for your cable TV service provider.

There is no need for a Pluto TV account and no credit card required for streaming a variety of Pluto TV channels. All you need to do is download the Pluto TV app or access Pluto TV’s web version.  Indeed, you don’t need much to enjoy watching different genres of movies and TV shows from several Pluto TV channels.

If you want to enjoy Pluto TV’s premium features, you must register for an account with Pluto TV. Some of the extra perks include resuming a movie on exactly where you’ve left on a different streaming device, and a feature that allows you to save your favorite Pluto TV channels.

For someone who doesn’t mind a few ads here and there, then switching to Pluto TV is a no-brainer. However, if you’re used to subscription-based streaming services such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, and HBO Max, then you might need some adjustments in dealing with ads popping up once in a while.

Similar to other cable service providers, Pluto TV generates revenue through ads. Pluto TV’s service is 100% ad-supported. Hence, free streaming service with Pluto TV comes with a “price,” i.e., encountering commercials while watching your favorite Pluto TV channels. That said, you’ll have to watch two to three-minute commercials at the start of your streaming. 

In general, it’s similar to watching traditional channels on your cable TV. Every Pluto TV channel comes with frequent commercial breaks. Also, if you’d like to rewind to a specific part of the movie or TV show, you’ll encounter a set of ads. Before the film plays again, you should finish watching these ads.

Speaking of the ad’s length, they are generally short, ranging between 15 to 30 seconds per ad. However, you will encounter them more often, resulting in watching repetitive ads in between streaming. For a 30-minute TV show or episode, there are typically four commercials that will be played.
