Q. A buddy of mine told me I should watch Pluto TV and, in particular, the Eye Candy channel. What are they? Can you fill me in, Mr. TV Answer Man? — Tom, Philadelphia.
Tom, Pluto TV is an online service that has roughly 100 channels — and they are all free!
Even better, Pluto has some of the coolest channels you’ll find on the Net. For instance, there’s the Gorilla Channel. Yes, the Gorilla Channel, inspired by a mythical story that President Trump spends most of his time watching gorillas on TV.
The real Gorilla Channel features an always-running loop of gorillas doing strange and wonderful things like waving to zoo goers; carrying baby gorillas on their backs; watching TV (not the Pluto channel); and fighting with each other.
There’s also a slew of news channels such as CBSN, Chedder, MSNBC and CNBC (the content is recent, but not live); a gaggle of sports channels (Stadium, Fox Sports, World Poker Tour, Big Sky Conference, and Glory Kickboxing); and a collection of comedy channels (The Onion, Cracked, FailArmy, Cats 24/7, Stand-Up TV and specialized channels for Mystery Science Theater 3000 and RiffTrax, the sequel to MSTK, starring members of the original cast.)
There’s even a channel devoted to pot enthusiasts called THC, and a bunch of ‘geek’ channels such as CNET, Nerdist and Hive. (It’s a coincidence that I’m mentioning the two categories in the same sentence.)
But I’ve been saving the best for last, that is, if you are so inclined as your buddy seems to be.
And that is…The Eye Candy Channel.
The Eye Candy Channel, which is produced by a company called Kaloopy, based in Southern California (where else?), airs one video after another of a beautiful woman, in various states of undress, dancing, jumping, and sometimes, rolling around the floor in apparent imminent ecstasy.
As you can imagine, it’s a channel that must be seen to be truly appreciated, and I suspect many of Pluto’s male viewers have watched it to the point of great appreciation.
So, Tom, that’s the scoop on Pluto TV, and the Eye Candy channel. Pluto is available at Pluto.TV and via apps on Roku, Fire TV, Apple TV (4th generation) and several other devices.
