Pluto TV
« on: April 12, 2018, 01:59:53 PM »
My wife and I like to leave the TV on all night. Usually it's something that we've seen a million times so we don't get interested in it and can fall asleep, like Law & Order or Monk or something. But the usual suspect networks that run that stuff have changed their programming to show other useless crap in the middle of the night. I used to put on Netflix versions of SVU for my wife, but they got rid of all the old seasons and she is getting sick of it. To combat this, I made the switch to Pluto TV.

So now it seems that almost every night I fall asleep with Pluto TV on the Rifftrax channel (occasionally the MST3K channel if it's a Riff I just saw recently). My question is, how often do they rotate the stock of films and shorts? It seems like a fairly small sample size, but it does change now and then. With so many shorts and VODs to choose from, it would be great if they had a larger rotation.

I don't even mind the stupid commercials every 10 minutes... after all, I'm supposed to be sleeping lol. It's great to wake up in the middle of the night and hear the guys. Reminds me of the old Comedy Central days.

you might want to try our Twitch channel. The way the infrastructure works makes it easier to have a more varied rotation.

Any issues with the RiffTrax main page should be directed to support@rifftrax.com Attempts to engage with me directly about such matters will result in ridicule.

It looks like they just dumped a bunch of new rifftrax titles on Pluto TV. They had the total riff off episodes, and I'm watching the carnival of souls live show now.

The MST3K Turkey Day marathon was last Sunday, so I thought I'd put the Pluto TV MST3K channel on today. EVERY FRIKKIN COMMERCIAL is some Tiger Woods thing with some old rap song. I'm not exaggerating, no other commercials are airing. Every break has it about 6 times in a row.

I may need to go to Plan B.

I watch at least a few minutes of Pluto TV every day. This is the first day that they've done this. I guess the company that sells whatever Tiger Woods is hawking said "just buy up all of the commercial time", thinking that it was a great idea and not realizing that it would just cause everyone to quit watching.

Reminds me of the first broadcasting for Hobgoblins, where, for some reason, every commercial was for either Forsaken, or Kahlua Mudslides over and over again. Made a particularly painful movie even more arduous.

Twitch rifftrax stream is commercial free. (Twitch sometimes throws a commercial at you once you start a stream and not all of the Twitch streams are commercial free, but again, the Rifftrax stream is).
