        Pluto TV is free... has 250 channels, and has thousands of free on demand movies and tv shows.

        So I wouldn't say many of those options listed really compare to Pluto TV. Some cost money, while others are very limited in content.

        But this an is interesting article, its almost a counter to my own which I wrote about all the benefits of Pluto TV and why it is a great option for those who do not want to pay for their TV.
