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.

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

How to unblock Pluto TV with Proton VPN:

Connect to any Plus server located in the United States. Plus servers are available for Plus, Unlimited, Family 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.

On your Android TV, connecting to United States will automatically connect you to a Plus server if you have the right subscription.

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