Pluto TV: What Happened to the Eye Candy Channel?

19 comments

Q. Hey, I wanted to watch the Eye Candy Channel tonight and it wasn’t on Pluto TV! I couldn’t find it anywhere and I looked up and down the channels. Where is it?!!! How am I going to stay in quarantine without the Eye Candy Channel?! — Marcio, Marina Del Rey, California.

Update: The Eye Candy Channel has found a new TV home. Find out where here.

Marcio, before I answer, a little background on Pluto TV and the Eye Candy Channel for our readers who are not familiar with either.

Pluto TV is an online service that has roughly 200 free channels. Yes, free. The lineup includes numerous sports, news and movie channels as well as specialty channels for such cult faves as Baywatch, Mystery Science Theater, Doctor Who, Unsolved Mysteries, The Addams Family and Degrassi High, among others.

And for the last five years, Pluto TV has carried The Eye Candy Channel. Produced by a Southern California company called Kaloopy, the Eye Candy Channel features one video after another of a beautiful woman in various states of undress, dancing, jumping, and sometimes, rolling around the floor or beach 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.

But as of last night, you can watch it no more.

Yes, Pluto TV has removed the Eye Candy Channel from its lineup. The streaming service has yet to offer an explanation, but Kaloopy has posted a statement at its web site:

“As of April 14 Kaloopy will no longer be The Eye Candy Channel on Pluto TV. We enjoyed the last 5 years of running the content on the channel. As with all good things they must come to an end. We’re working on putting up the videos on many new platforms and will be announcing them in the coming weeks.”

If I had to guess, which I sometimes am forced to do in this space, I would say the change has something to do with Pluto TV’s new owner, Viacom, which last year assumed control of the service. Perhaps Viacom didn’t like carrying a channel that some might view as an affront to women. But I am just speculating so don’t start calling Viacom and telling some secretary he or she is evil personified.

Okay?

Sorry to have to inform you of the news, Marcio. But you can still watch Kaloopy’s dancing girls at its web site, and it sounds like the channel will return at some point on another service. The TV Answer Man will update this story if and when we get more information.

Happy viewing, and stay safe!

  1. So you keep crap like MTV or Teenage Brides on but remove girls in bikinis, guess we know what you really like.

  2. Screw Viacom, pluto channel gone from my Roku. They obviously want us to watch gays and lesbians. Which makes this regular man sick to my stomach.

  3. Lol. Did Ru Paul have something to do with this? Either him or Christians. Seeing so much religious crap now…

  4. I am a bit pissed. I appreciate Pluto TV. But really taking away Eye Candy and replacing it with that stupid train thru Norway? When you look across the different channels it is hard to understand why. You didn’t remove the THC channel. People just smoking bud on tv. I can mention others and I’m not hating, but please reconsider for GOD sake and ours too. Your loyal fans.

  5. It was just for SJW cookie points. They removed it but replace it with See Her, a channel dedicated to women empowerment crap. But they didn’t touch the Baywatch or DCC Making the Squad (a bunch of half naked cheerleaders “dancing”) channels, which tells you Eye Candy was targeted.

  6. I deleted Pluto TV as soon as eye candy disappeared. I will not support viacom in its promotion of only homosexual people. I have seen enough men kissing men to last me 12 lifetimes. Pluto TV is dead to me and I hope it dies a sudden death for other viewers.

  7. I agree fully just got my Roku back up and why can I see the lesbians and gay kissing and not the beautiful human body. Way to political abnormal correctness. Viacoms gonna ruin something else like the corporate bohemoths.Oh and yeah,really keeping THC channel and removing my relaxation channel Kaloopy?!.
