REVRY, New LGBT Option On Pluto TV. Are You Unplugged From Cable TV And Looking For A Good Gay Option?
I previously shelled out $165+ a month for cable/internet access which gave me a pile of channels that gave me a handful I cared about. When I made the move to Florida, I settled into a place where the internet was free and my home entertainment dropped down to $20.00. I decided to pull the plug and pay 9 bucks for HULU and $11 for NetFlix all viewed over my AppleTV. I'll take the $20 over the 165+ any day, any month.
More and more of us are moving to cheaper and dare I say better entertainment. If you're like me, LGBT and have cut the cable television cord, we all have a new option out there to add to our less expensive viewing list.
Just in time for Pride, Pluto TV, the leading free internet TV provider, is launching its first LGBTQ+ channel, in partnership with REVRY. Since you can watch Pluto TV on any smartphone, browser or living room device, this effectively brings queer content to households in the US and Europe for free. Streaming free are classic movies, film festival hits, documentaries and original programming.
