PlutoTV, the streaming service that aims to provide the experience of a 1990s cable subscription, announced the addition of a new pro wrestling channel to its lineup today. Pluto announced the new channel on Twitter, while indie wrestling streaming service IWTV announced its content would be featured on the channel along with other wrestling content through PlutoTV's partnership with Mark Our Media.
The original press release* from IWTV stated, "We're excited to announce a new distribution partnership launching today as IWTV will be bringing independent wrestling to Pluto TV." However, IWTV later corrected their press release to read, "We're excited to announce that IWTV will be featured in Pluto TV's new channel Pluto TV Pro Wrestling as part of our partnership with Mark Out Media. We're bringing independent wrestling to more fans – FOR FREE- available everywhere you can stream Pluto TV."
IWTV revealed the following content is available now:
Beyond Wrestling "Uncharted Territory Season 1"
Women's Wrestling Revolution Entire Library
DEFY Wrestling's "DEFY Now"
PlutoTV is a free streaming app that provides dozens of ad-supported channels themed after genres, time periods, or specific television shows. The target audience of PlutoTV is viewers fatigued by too many choices in the streaming marketplace from services like Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, HBO Max, or the like, where you could spend hours just browsing the content to decide what to watch. On Pluto, viewers are directed to an interface similar to a cable guide where they choose a channel that plays linear content, including classic movies or marathons of classic TV shows. For overwhelmed viewers, the comfort of turning on a channel playing reruns of the Maury show and just letting it play can be a huge relief from the stress of deciding what to watch. Plus, those paternity tests never old.
In addition to the new pro wrestling channel, Pluto TV announced the launch of a new boxing channel at the same time. The new Pro Wrestling Channel is listed right between the Bellator and Impact Wrestling channels at channel number 732.
