PlutoTV Coming To Canada In December

Finally, one of the best free streaming services on the web will be available to all Canadians without a VPN. 

In case you're not familiar with PlutoTV, it houses a vast array of free movies and TV shows, with a mixture of hundreds of so-called "Live" TV channels and On Demand shows. Just about everything you can think of is there, including a plethora of current CBS shows like Ghosts, movies like Planes, Trains and Automobiles, Anchorman and War of the Worlds. 

There's also a 24-hour Alex Trebek Jeopardy channel, if you feel in the mood to compete, and a never-ending Bob Barker-era Price Is Right feed. And there's classic TV, ranging from Johnny Carson's Tonight Show and Perry Mason to Dick van Dyke and All In The Family.

The site is owned by CBS/Paramount and will be repped here by Corus, so you may see some Global shows sneaking in on the Canadian version. 

But there's still no word on whether the rights to all of those shows will transfer to Canada, so some may not be accessible here.

It officially debuts on December 1st and is one of the better free services on the web. 

Those with a VPN set to the U.S. can sample it here. 

Pluto TV to launch in Canada in December

Looks like you need VPN to get the best of both worlds. 
The Canadian version leaves out a Sci-Fi channel. (& possibly others)
I'm guessing this is because Pluto Canada will be Corus run while 
the Canadian Sci-Fi channel is indeed a Bell channel, with Bell holding onto the rights to what may be considered "best" content for such a channel.

I went for years without a VPN. Now I would never consider going on the Internet without one. They're not expensive in the long run and they make a huge difference when trying to access foreign sites. They also increase your security. If you've never considered one, you might want to look into them. 

As for Pluto Canada, this press release has wider details about what you can expect to see at the launch.

Totally agree RA. When I did my extensive research, the two names that always came out on top were Express and Nord. I went with Nord. They had a deal for first timers for roughly $57 U.S. for two years.

I also use Nord, and find it not only easy to use and very reliable, but if you ever have questions, the response is quick, easy to understand and they seem like they truly want to help. Plus it works!

One of these days I should head to South Surrey (near the border) and connect to AT&T’s mobile network. I’ll pay a roaming fee but in theory I should be able to access the US Pluto.

If you can spring for a VPN (which you can set to the U.S.,) you can stay put and watch it at home.

& that's what some people don't seem to realize. Any fees requested are actually less than the cost of roaming fees to watch on a smart phone. 
Bigger screen also, lol.

I'm hoping my Corus (CJR.B-TO) stock turns around soon.

Re: PlutoTV Coming To Canada In December

I hope Canada gets a chance to tune into the latest PlutoTV addition - more than 400 segments from more than 50 years of "60 Minutes," a new freebie that's been added to the site in the U.S. For now, the pieces available will only be from around 2008 to 2019, but they promise to add older ones as the years go by. 

The ones I would like to see are the infamous episodes where Mike Wallace shows up to confront some hustler or crook and traps him into a squirm-worthy cross-examination. Those were always my favourites and while they've essentially stopped doing them, they'd be worth watching again. Global currently owns the 60 Minutes rights in Canada, so it's my hope they'll be available on this side of the border when the site launches here in December

Those with a VPN set to the U.S. can find the newcomer already online.

It'll be nice to see the late great Andy Rooney once again. I miss hearing his "last word" at the end of the program.
Here's a classic, which includes the line "I bet the bottle cost more than the water..." lol
