How to watch Pluto TV outside the US with a VPN

Pluto TV is a free, ad-supported streaming service that is available in the US. It presents most of its programming in a linear fashion (as it appears on regular television, with a fixed schedule and ad breaks) but it also has some TV series and movies on demand. Pluto TV has its own versions of Spike and MTV showing regular programming. You can watch classic TV series, like Third Rock From the Sun, as well as blockbuster movies, like The Big Short, on demand.

ProtonVPN users can watch all of this and more online at Pluto TV!

How to unblock Pluto TV with ProtonVPN:

Connect to any Plus server located in the United States. Plus servers have a “P” icon next to them.

On your Android TV (app currently in beta testing), connecting to United States will automatically connect you to a Plus server if you have the right subscription.

Plus servers are available for Plus and Visionary Plan subscribers. For the fastest and most reliable connection, please connect to the server that is closest to your current location. To find the nearest servers to you, check the full list of our servers.

ProtonVPN does not condone the use of our VPN service to bypass copyright regulations.

Step 1:

Get a ProtonVPN Plus or Visionary subscription

If you already have a Plus or Visionary ProtonVPN account, you can skip to step 2.

If you’re a new user, sign up for ProtonVPN.

If you have a Free or Basic plan, upgrade your account by logging in and selecting Plus or Visionary from your account Dashboard.

Step 2:

Install our VPN app

If you’ve already installed one of our apps, you can skip to step 3.

You need to download the ProtonVPN app for your operating system. You can securely stream your favorite shows on Windows, macOS, and Linux devices or on the go with an Android device.

If you have an Android TV, you can join the beta testing program and install the app directly on your device.

Download the app for Linux, macOS, and Windows
Download our Android and Android TV app

Note: The ProtonVPN app for iOS doesn’t officially support streaming at the moment. 

Step 3:

Start watching Pluto TV online with your VPN!

Because Pluto TV is supported by ads and free, you do not need a subscription. (By creating an account, you can customize which TV channels appear at the top of your list.) To start watching your favorite TV shows and movies, all you need to do is connect to a Plus server in the US and navigate to Pluto TV.

If you experience issues watching Pluto TV, please try the following:

– Restart the ProtonVPN app and start a new VPN connection
Clear your browser cache
– Use a different browser
– Restart your device
Clear your DNS cache

Pluto TV may not always work. If you have tried all possible options and are still having issues or if you have any questions, please contact our Support team.
