I love my Pluto TV! I have been using Pluto for more than 3 months now, enough time to make a honest and fair recommendation or tell the cut throat truth. Luckily I can recommend Pluto, first time for everything. I have no complaints, I enjoy the services all the way around. I read about the all the features and learned how to use them to effectively, they can stand behind all they offer with their services, when people follow the directions.

I really love the layout, it’s actually sometimes nice to watch scheduled programming rather than the on demand style of Netflix and Hulu (because sometimes it’s just nice to have someone else make a decision for you). But the same 3 or 4 commercials OVER AND OVER, especially the fact that the dang Panera soup commercial plays at least 3 to 8 times in a row is enough to drive the sanest person nuts.
