This is for any streamers who have ever said, “I wish there was a channel that plays my favorite TV series 24/7.”
Leave it to Pluto TV to come up with this idea. The free streaming service introduced six new channels for fans of some classic TV shows. We’re talking about Happy Days, Wings, Family Ties, The Love Boat, Beverly Hillbillies, and Mission: Impossible. Pluto TV launched a channel for each of these TV series. If you’re a fan of any of these shows, you now have a constant and never-ending source of entertainment.
Here are the new channels you’ll find in the “Classic TV” section on Pluto TV:
Life was simple on Nantucket Island in the early 1990s. Brothers Joe and Brian Hackett (Tim Daly and Steven Weber) operate Sandpiper, a small airline company, while also navigating life and love. In addition to its unique premise – most of the show’s situations took part in an airport – Wings has everything a ’90s sitcom needed to entertain. That included a star-studded cast that includes Crystal Bernard, Thomas Haden Church, and Tony Shalhoub. Enjoy all eight seasons!
Family Ties (504)
The Keaton family was a staple for many Gen X TV fans. Who could forget “A, My Name is Alex,” the emotionally gripping, two-part series where Alex grieves the death of his friend? Those episodes and all seven seasons of Family Ties are available on this Pluto channel. If you miss this popular family sitcom from the ’80s, you can join Michael J. Fox, Meredith Baxter, Michael Gross, Justine Bateman, and Tina Yothers in all their glory.
Happy Days (505)
Who would have thought that a TV show made in the ‘’70s and ‘’80s, set in the 50ss, would become a culture phenomenon? Well, that’s Happy Days for you! What Gen Xer didn’t run home from the bus stop to catch this on syndication back in the day? (I know I did.) All 11 seasons of this truly classic TV series are available for you to stream anytime. Bonus: Titles on this channel include eight seasons of Laverne & Shirley, and four seasons of Mork & Mindy. Pluto made sure this channel didn’t “jump the shark.”
The Love Boat (509)
“Love Boat soon will be making another run.” And that run is all nine seasons of this whimsical sitcom playing 24/7 on Pluto. (I remember watching this show on Friday nights, right before Fantasy Island.) If you’re ready to relive the magic aboard the S.S. Pacific Princess, the crew and its guests are expecting you… on channel 509.
Beverly Hillbillies (512)
We all know and love the theme song. And if you love this show, Jed, Granny, Jethro, and Elly May are waiting for you on Pluto TV. Drop in on them any time for nine seasons of slapstick comedy and hilarious situations of this fish-out-of-water family. Just remember, the party and the Clampett’s is BYOB – bring your own banjo.
Mission: Impossible (523)
Millennials might not know this, but Mission: Impossible was a thing decades before Tom Cruise came along. This spy-oriented TV series was huge in the 1960s, and it still has its legion of diehard fans today. Well, those fans now have a channel that’s streaming all seven seasons of Mission: Impossible. And the best news is that these shows won’t self-destruct in five seconds.
About Pluto TV
Are you new to the concept of Pluto TV? You must have missed my previous blog post about it. That’s okay because I’m happy to catch you up. Pluto is like a free cable TV service that you access on the internet. It offers viewers hundreds of channels, which are divided into a variety of categories, including:
Tech + Geek
Within each category, you’ll find a bunch of channels. Each channel has its own unique focus. For example, there is an American Gladiator channel and Baywatch channel. Viewers can also enjoy variety of content from sub-channels typically associated with TV antenna reception, such as Buzzr, Shout!, and others.
Regarding Pluto TV…
…I think a great supplement to the TV you’re already paying for. Very few things in life are free, so we should take advantage of the free TV whenever we can. Bonus points if you enjoy any of these and other classic TV series. If Pluto TV has them, you can watch them anytime… or all the time. Stream on, streamers!
