Pluto TV Adds 7 New Channels
Pluto TV is set to roll out new channels dedicated to CSI: Miami, Rachael Ray, and Hallmark movies in September.
Pluto TV, our favorite FAST (free ad-supported television) app here at CableTV.com, is adding seven new “live” channels in September. We still remember back in the day when we only watched the Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Cats 24/7 channels, simpler times.
Let’s look at the new additions coming to Pluto TV’s 250+ channel lineup, even though there’s no fresh kitties or robots content.
New Pluto TV channels
00s Replay (premieres September 1)
Pluto TV has channels dedicated to the movies of the ’80s and ’90s, and now the Y2K decade is in the spotlight. Among the films kicking off 00s Replay are Mean Girls, Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, and Tom Cruise’s 2005 take on War of the Worlds.
The Ed Sullivan Show (premieres September 1)
The Ed Sullivan Show is mostly remembered as the variety hour that introduced The Beatles to America in 1964, but they’re not the only band Sullivan welcomed (or tolerated): Elvis, The Rolling Stones, The Doors, The Beach Boys, Janis Joplin, and many more also performed in the ’50s, ’60s, and ’70s.
CSI: Miami (premieres September 16)
Once relegated to sharing time on Pluto TV’s CSI channel, CSI: Miami finally gets its own dedicated streaming space. From 2002 to 2012, the David Caruso–led crime procedural was the most popular TV series on the planet, and Caruso’s sunglasses were meme superstars (“Yeeeaaah!”).
CSI: NY (premieres September 16)
Even though it wasn’t quite as big as CSI or CSI: Miami, the blue-hued CSI: NY (starring Gary Sinise and Melina Kanakaredes) was still a sturdy crime drama that ran for nine seasons on CBS. It’s also notable for not being CSI: Cyber, which thankfully won’t be getting its own channel.
60 Minutes (premieres September 24)
Since 1968, the newsmagazine show 60 Minutes has produced over 2,500 episodes—but it still hasn’t upgraded to a digital stopwatch. The series has also won 138 Emmy awards and produced two of the most-watched TV interviews ever: Barack Obama and, yes, Stormy Daniels.
Hallmark Movies & More (premieres September 26)
Round-the-clock cheesy romcoms and holiday flicks are go on the Hallmark Movies & More channel. HM&M is also home to series like Cedar Cove and Chesapeake Shores, as well as more Christmas meet-cute movies than you can shake a flannel shirt at.
The Rachael Ray Show (premieres September 26)
Rachael Ray’s daily syndicated series has cooked up over 2,000 episodes in 16 seasons—that’s a whole lotta recipes and household hacks. The Rachael Ray Show Is also famous for its celebrity guests, ranging from A-listers like Oprah Winfrey to nobodies like Bill Clinton.
