In the US, Pluto TV offers over 100 channels, over 120 major content partners, availability across all streaming devices with approximately 10 million monthly visitors. Pluto TV’s European headquarters is in Berlin, Germany, with Olivier Jollet as Managing Director Europe, overseeing a team of media executives - including Paul Edwards, Director of Content Partnerships Europe, and David Kwok, Director of Programming Europe.

Sky is an investor in Pluto TV and is poised to drive the introduction of the service in the UK. Sky’s initial investment in Pluto TV took place in 2014, shortly after the company’s launch in the US.

Further launches of the Pluto TV on other devices are planned for the UK and the German-speaking markets in the near future.
