Pluto TV, Paramount Streaming’s free ad-supported streaming service, is adding more Star Trek content, now expanding to include full seasons of original Paramount+ programming in the USA.
Stream SNW for free… season 2 of Picard already available
Paramount Global is leveraging the power of its popular free streaming service with a new initiative of offering full seasons of original programming before new seasons are released on Paramount+. According to Deadline, this will include the first season of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, which should start streaming for free on Pluto TV in May, one month ahead of the debut of season two on Paramount+ on June 15.
The different original shows will be available via the Paramount+ Picks channel during primetime programming, and also available in special programming blocks on other channels. In the case of Strange New Worlds, this will likely mean the show will rotate through on one of the two dedicated Star Trek channels.
If Paramount continues with this corporate synergy, we could expect the most recent seasons of Lower Decks, Prodigy, and Discovery to also show up on Pluto TV ahead of the release of their upcoming new seasons on Paramount+. It looks like Pluto TV has already started this initiative, as the second season of Star Trek: Picard recently began streaming on Pluto TV’s Star Trek channel and all ten episodes of season 2 are currently available on demand, which is also available for free (with ads).
Pluto TV is available on the web, and via apps for smart TVs, consoles, and mobile devices. To see Star Trek on Pluto TV, click here.
