Brand new free-to-use streaming service coming to Canada

You can never have too many streaming platform options, right Canada? Especially the ones that are free to use.

A new free streaming service is coming to the Great White North, with over 100 unique curated channels and over 20,000 hours of content.

Pluto TV will launch nationwide on December 1 and will feature a wide variety of free programs such as drama, comedy, lifestyle, kids, movies, 24-hour news, and more.

Unlike other popular platforms, Pluto TV will be free and will trade in the subscription-based advertising model. Essentially you don’t have to pay, but you will have to advertise – like in the good old days of this thing called television.

On Thursday, Pluto TV announced that it is the world’s “leading FAST (free ad-supported streaming TV) service), in partnership with Paramount Global and Corus Entertainment Inc.

At launch, Pluto TV is not only free, but also requires no registration. Canadian users can watch Pluto TV over the web, Apple TV app, Amazon Fire TV, Roku, Android TV, Chromecast, Samsung and LG devices, or mobile apps on the App Store and Google Play.

Pluto TV says Corus will be the advertising agent for what is positioned to become “one of the largest free premium ad-supported streaming services in the country.” In addition, the platform also offers a curated suite of Corus Original library series spanning various genres.

I couldn’t be happier to officially announce Pluto TV’s Canadian launch date, December 1,” said Olivier Jollet, EVP & international GM for Pluto TV at Paramount Global. “Our initial channel lineup further illustrates how we are working to combine Corus’ incredible local content offerings with Pluto TV’s global content to meet the tastes of Canadian audiences. I am confident that Pluto TV will soon become a new destination for fans of curated content as well as customers and partners looking to invest in a new and unique streaming service at launch.”

Pluto TV Canada directly says it will offer a “wide range of exclusive channels with international and Canadian titles.”
