Pluto TV is an AVOD platform or, what is the same, a platform that allows us to watch TV channels and content on demand without having to pay anything but, in exchange, we have to watch ads. It is a free alternative to Netflix if you want to watch channels and content without paying anything but you will do it over the Internet and, of course, you will need to have a minimum speed for it to work smoothly and to be able to access the content.
If you are doubting whether or not you can use it or have a very unstable connection and low speed, we explain what is the minimum speed to see it and what it allows.
From the Pluto TV help page they indicate that have a stable connection It is essential to see the contents optimally. At least, they explain from the web page, a speed equal to or greater than 5 Mb is needed for them to load.
If you don’t know what your Internet speed is on your device, you can try doing a speed test through the browser. You simply need to go to the web page testdevelocidad.es and press the button. After a few seconds, the page will tell you what your upload speed and download speed are and you will be able to know if it is enough or not for the Pluto TV contents to look good.
It is a required speed similar to that required by other streaming platforms. For example, Netflix recommends us to have about 5 Mbps if we want to access content in full high definition or FullHD but ensures that 3 Mbps is enough if we want HD or have to have up to 15 Mbps if we want the highest quality and watch movies or series in UHD or 4K.
How to see
If you have this Internet speed you will be able to watch the free channels of Pluto TV without any problem wherever you are. You can access both if you are connected by cable from your computer or your TV (practically always, wherever you are and have contracted what you have contracted, we will have a higher speed than this if we connect by cable) but also you can connect through your home WiFi networkfrom your office or from public Wi-Fi networks (although it is never recommended to connect to this type of network because they can endanger our data and our privacy) as long as you reach the minimum speed.
Also, the great advantage of Pluto TV is that we don’t need registration to access the different content, but we only enter the web and we can see the free channels or enter the à la carte section. From the browser we can see all the content but it also has a free application that will allow us to access all the channels without logging in or registering in it.
Unlike other platforms such as Netflix, HBO Max or Disney+, we cannot watch the content of Pluto TV offline but rather it will force us to be connected to the Internet at all times to be able to reproduce the contents. Whether you are going to watch the free channels of Pluto TV or if you want to access the content on demand (series, movies and programs) you must be connected to the Internet.
