Major League Soccer Joins the Programming Slate on Pluto TV
Major League Soccer and Pluto TV have launched the league’s channel on Pluto TV (Channel 203).
MLS becomes the first pro sports league to feature a dedicated channel as part of Pluto TV’s offering of 100+ live, linear, curated channels and thousands of movies on demand from nearly 150 major studios, networks, publishers and digital-first outfits.
The league’s agreement with Pluto TV will see the new channel feature premium soccer content, classic matches, highlights, and more.
“Major League Soccer’s agreement with Pluto TV offers fans a new way to experience the game and interact with our high-quality content,” said MLS Senior VP of Media Chris Schlosser. “Major League Soccer is always evaluating new opportunities to provide our young, diverse and tech-savvy fan base increased access to our matches, athletes, and clubs. We are thrilled to offer a new free, content destination for our fans.”
In addition to classic matches including MLS Cup 2018 and Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s debut, original features on the channel will include The Movement, which recently debuted its fourth season exploring the intersection of soccer and culture, as well as The Birth of a Rivalry, MLS’s flagship series about the passion of new rivalries.
Other regular MLS series that can now be found on Pluto TV include Matchday Central, Extratime driven by Continental, MLS Review, and highlight packs featuring the best goals and plays from each week.
“Establishing our first league offering with a renowned and respected organization like MLS is the perfect match,” said Amy Kuessner, Senior VP of Content Partnerships, Pluto TV. “Expanding Pluto TV’s sports offerings has long been a goal of the platform, and we’re proud to kick that off with the most popular game in the world.”
Viewers and fans can access Pluto TV on gaming consoles such as PS4, as well as Amazon’s Fire TV, Roku, Android TV, Chromecast, on Smart TVs by Vizio, Hisense, and Sony. It is also available on-the-go via apps for iOS, Android and Amazon, as well as at-the-fingertips on PC or Mac, or on the web.
