  1. I’m afraid this signals the beginning of the end. The new corporate overlords will greed this thing to death. Not my favorite service, but pretty good for free.

  2. If Viacom want to sell me Comedy Central for a few dollars a month, I’d consider it.

    Bundle it with their other garbage, no thanks, that is why I don’t have cable.

  3. I absolutely love it the way it is. Sure there is a lot of repetition on many of the channels but it is a good balance for a free service. Can’t imagine what they could possibly add that would make it worth paying for (on top of Nflix, Prime, CBS, ESPN+, etc). Boooo!!!

  4. Sadly, we all knew they wouldn’t spend money on it just to let it not be monetized even more.

    > Viacom noted that Pluto TV’s ad inventory is undersold — today, the company’s sales team sells less than 50 percent of ad space. That leaves room for growth.

    Now if they mean undersold in that Pluto wasn’t asking for enough money, I don’t know, that’s entirely possible.

    But, my concern and belief is they mean more ads are needed and I find the ads are sometimes overloaded on channels like TNA and Wipe Out. If they think there aren’t enough, that boggles my mind. Of course if they could get the ad breaks to match up with the ad breaks built into most of the shows, then I might get behind it.
