Today Pluto TV and Discovery Networks announced a deal to bring select Discovery shows to Pluto TV’s free streaming service. This won’t be live streaming of Discovery’s popular cable networks but will offer free streaming of popular shows from networks including Discovery Channel, Animal Planet, ID, Discovery Life, Science Channel, and TLC. Select episodes from series including Discovery Channel’s Misfit Garage, TLC’s Kate Plus 8, Animal Planet’s River Monsters and ID’s Dates from Hell, among others.
“Having our world-class Discovery content as part of Pluto’s offering reinforces Discovery’s commitment to reach all viewers across all screens, platforms and devices,” said Gabriel Sauerhoff, SVP Digital Distribution, Discovery. “We are excited to provide audiences another way to access the shows that they love, while also introducing these brands and series to new viewers.”
An exact date for the launch of Discovery on Pluto TV has not been set but is expected in November 2018.
