        I don’t do anything OTA, so I can’t confirm or deny it.

        I can tell you that it is a live stream, the same one they do on their website…so I would assume it would be the same as the OTA except for maybe the commercials.

    The article misses the biggest new Pluto feature. OnDemand was added for Roku, Fire and maybe others. Doesn’t work on apps yet. They also recently got deals with MGM, LionsGate and Warner Bros. How could you miss this? Should update article.

      I found the Xive channel on Apple TV to be much better. The Roku version seems buggy to me

        Xive also has a free channel under Pluto. Works fine on Roku and Fire.

        Nope, just refuting the ‘official’ social engineering message that we are being indoctrinated with. Nothing wrong at all with stating that they AREN’T trusted. Could have gone farther to point out all the incestuous links between them and the DNC etc.
