Pluto TV is coming to Google TV in style. Google announced that Pluto TV would be integrated at the OS level with free live streaming TV channels in the Live tab or watch Free Live TV recommendations in the To You tab.
Google is consistently releasing new enhancements to its Google TV OS (available on Chromecast with Google TV). The latest improvement comes through a partnership with Pluto TV, a popular free linear streaming service. Instead of on-demand video content, Pluto TV works more like traditional cable.
When you download the Pluto TV app on your Google TV toting device, you’ll see more than 300 free live TV channels on the Live tab and Free Live TV recommendations on the To you tab. If you are an avid Google TV user and you like to navigate right from the OS level, this is a significant upgrade that will make it easier to find new things to watch.
Google says the partnership with Pluto TV starts today, but the integration will roll out to all Google TV devices in the coming weeks. This means that even if you download the Pluto TV app on your Chromecast with Google TV, you may not be able to watch the channels on the Live and For You tab yet.
