Pluto TV will launch OUTtv Proud channel during Pride Month

June marks the 53rd annual Pride Month, and Pluto TV is doubling down on LGBTQ+ content with the launch of a new channel, OUTtv Proud. And according to the announcement, that will entail a lot of RuPaul’s Drag Race marathons. The regular edition of RuPaul’s Drag Race will be featured on Logo Pluto TV every Monday through Thursday from 6 p.m. ET to 1 a.m. ET. Logo Pluto TV will also have marathons of the spinoff series, RuPaul’s Drag Race: All Stars, from Monday to Thursday during the hours of 3 p.m. ET to 6 p.m. ET, and again on Saturdays from 2 p.m. ET to 2 a.m. ET.

But Pride Month can not rest on RuPaul alone. That’s why Logo Pluto TV will also run marathons of Big Freedia: Queen of Bounce every Friday of the month from 8 p.m. ET to 2 a.m. ET. Additionally, Pluto TV’s Vevo channels will throw the spotlight on LGBTQ+ musical artists and queer-friendly music acts including Blondie, David Bowie, Freddie Mercury & Queen, Cyndi Lauper, Culture Club & Boy George, Muna, Omar Apollo, Kany García, Maria Becerra, and Ricky Martin.

The Pride Month celebration will also extend to Pluto TV’s movie channels. The Birdcage, In & Out, But I’m a Cheerleader, Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, Kinky Boots, I Love You Phillip Morris, and Broken Hearts Club will be featured on Pluto TV Comedy. Pluto TV Love Stories has Date and Switch and The Wedding Banquet, with encore showings of In & Out and But I’m a Cheerleader. Many of these titles will also run on Cine Premiere.

This month, Pluto TV is also celebrating National Game Show Day by launching channels dedicated to The Price is Right: Drew Carey and Family Feud Classics. Nickelodeon’s teenage comedies iCarly, VICTORiOUS, and Sam & Cat will also have a new home on the Totally Teen channel.

On June 5, Pluto TV will also launch a new animated series called Shaq’s Garage. It’s a comedic fantasy that features Shaquille O’Neal and his Shaq Pack, a collection of cars that have come to life with the magic of AI. It’s not Shaq’s first animated role, and it probably won’t be his last.

The visually impaired can now watch Comcast TV channels on VR goggles
comcast xfinity stream app vr goggles visually impaired nueyes e2 low vision electronic magnifier yard 1

For years, those who are blind, or legally blind because of visual impairment, have relied on described video soundtracks while watching TV. Now, thanks to a partnership between Comcast and a company called NuEyes, another option exists. Comcast's Xfinity Stream app now comes preinstalled on the NuEyes e2, an AR/VR magnifying device that enhances the usable vision of a person who is visually impaired. It looks like Google's now-defunct Daydream VR goggles, but it's an all-in-one device that doesn't require the use of a smartphone.

Conditions such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, and retinitis pigmentosa can all contribute to serious vision impairment. “Being blind since birth, I know firsthand the power of technology to enhance independence,” Comcast vice president of accessibility Tom Wlodkowski said in a press release. “Our partnership with NuEyes is an extension of our commitment to designing great entertainment experiences for people of all abilities.”

directv now channel list pricing release date watching tv remote

As the streaming video war hits a fever pitch, cable and satellite providers are faced with a difficult reality: With so many enticing -- and inexpensive -- streaming options available for both on-demand and live TV, a lot of subscribers are asking why they should continue paying such high monthly fees. Charter Communications, the nation's second-largest cable company, has decided it's better to offer up its own streaming, over-the-top (OTT) service than to watch its customers abandon ship in favor of Sling TV, PlayStation Vue, or one of the other services. This new service, called Spectrum TV Essentials, will launch in March for $15 per month and will include over 60 live lifestyle, entertainment, and news channels, plus any on-demand content these channels provide.

You can only sign up for Spectrum TV Essentials if you're a Spectrum internet customer, but if you do, you'll have access to the content via the free Spectrum TV app, for iOS, Android, Apple TV, Roku, Xbox One, Amazon Kindle Fire, Samsung smart TVs, and computers via the Spectrum TV website. No word yet whether the service will offer a DVR option, or how many simultaneous streams will be allowed.
