Pluto TV

Apologies if this has been asked already. I’m new to Virgin Media and keep seeing the ad for Pluto TV, telling me to look in Apps for the app. It’s not there!

I’ve done some googling and apparently it’s on the v6 box but not the 360. But the 360 is the newer box. This makes no sense to me! Why would this apparently new app be on the old box but not the new one? Is it going to be put on the 360 box? 

If it’s not, stop rubbing my nose in it by constantly advertising it to me and telling me to look in apps! 

Explanations appreciated. Many Thanks!

Re: Pluto TV

Hi TraceyEss,

You are correct that the 360 doesn't have a dedicated Pluto app at present (hopefully that's in the pipeline.

I hope this helps in a small way.

You can though use the My5 app and click on channels. There you will see a selection of programs under Pluto Drama, Pluto Food, Pluto Movies, Pluto Paranormal and Pluto Retro.

The 360 doesn't have all the same features as the V6. It has some newer functionality, but doesn't replicate everything the V6 does. Most of the app-stuff is probably replicable given development time, but remember these are two very different software platforms and there will be differences for quite a while yet.

Re: Pluto TV

Thanks for your reply. Sad aren’t I? Just wanted to have a look. I don’t bother watching most of the channels anyway!

Re: Pluto TV

Hi @TraceyEss thanks for posting and welcome to our community.

I'm sorry the app you seek is not currently available on the 360.  Your fantastic fellow community members have advised you correctly.  The only thing I can really advise at this time is watch this space.

Regards

I have just tried this and there is no "Channels" option to click on?
