We are thrilled to offer a new free, content destination for our fans.”
Highlights of the available programming include classic matches, such as MLS Cup 2018 and Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s debut for the LA Galaxy, a 4-3 win over crosstown rivals LAFC. Original features on offer will include The Movement, which explores the intersection of soccer and culture, and The Birth of a Rivalry, MLS’s flagship series about the passion of new rivalries.
Additional programming includes Matchday Central, featuring expert analysis from MLS personalities; Extratime driven by Continental, a twice-weekly talk show; MLS Review, a weekly show; and highlights including “Top 10 Plays” and “All Goals,” among others.
“Establishing our first league offering with a renowned and respected organization like the MLS is the perfect match,” said Amy Kuessner, SVP of content partnerships for Pluto TV. “Expanding Pluto TV’s sports offerings has long been a goal of the platform, and we’re proud to kick that off with the most popular game in the world.”
MLS’ new channel will join Pluto TV’s 100-plus live, linear, curated channels and thousands of movies on demand from nearly 150 major studios, networks, publishers and digital first outfits.
