Pluto TV is one of the most popular free streaming apps on many popular devices such as Rokus and Fire TVs. A wide range of content curated into a single interface has made it a favorite app for many cord cutters.
Now Pluto TV is testing out adding local channels from your antenna right into the Pluto TV interface. If you own a Roku TV and have connected an antenna to it you will be able to view your local channels right inside the Pluto TV interface.
We couldn’t find a lot of details about this new feature so we reached out to Ilya Pozin a staff member at Pluto TV. Here is what we learned.
During this beta testing Pluto TV only shows up to 15 channels inside the Pluto TV guide. It said that was just for the early test and Pluto will continue to improve support as it gets feedback from the community.
Pluto is pulling the data from the Roku TV so you must have your antenna set up with your Roku TV. This is also just an early beta test. Currently it does not support other devices, such as Android TV, but said depending on how the community reacts to this test it may consider adding support to other devices and expanding the support for live TV.
