OTT service launches ‘Gravitas Movies’ channel 6/01/2017 6:43 AM Eastern

Pluto TV, the free, ad-based OTT TV service, is adding a catalog of more than 2,000 features and documentaries through a partnership with Gravitas Ventures.

As a result, Pluto TV is launching a new exclusive channel (No. 721 on Pluto TV’s digital dial), called Gravitas Movies, that is available on the Web at Pluto.tv, as well as its apps for iOS and Android mobile devices and TV-connected platforms such as Roku players, Apple TV boxes, Android TV devices and PlayStation and Xbox consoles.

Films coming to Pluto TV via the deal include music documentary Sound City with Dave Grohl, Tom Petty, Mick Fleetwood, Rivers Cuomo and Trent Reznor, Cassie Jaye’s The Red Pill about the men's rights movement, Hell Baby with Rob Codry and Leslie Bibb, and crime drama Perfect Sisters starring Abigail Breslin and Mira Sorvino.

“We are always looking for ways to bring unique and diverse content to our viewers,” Tom Ryan, CEO of Pluto TV, said in a statement. "Gravitas Movies will satisfy viewers seeking cutting-edge documentaries, indie films making the film festival circuits, and feature-length movies you want to see in theaters."

Pluto, which counts Lionsgate, MGM and Warner Bros. among its content partners, recently announced a free VOD component that complements its primary, linear-style service.
