Pluto TV is available on a range of platforms including Virgin Media, Samsung and LG smart TVs, Amazon Fire TV and even PlayStation devices.

Both already have hundreds of free channels available to watch without signing up.

But now they’ve gained four more channels from UKTV.

Some of the most popular shows from Dave, Drama, W and Yesterday are broadcast on four themed channels.

UKTV Play Heroes, UKTV Play Laughs, UKTV Play Full Throttle and UKTV Play Uncovered.

UKTV Play Heroes features frontline programming featuring paramedics and police officers including Emma Willis: Delivering Babies, Inside the Ambulance, 999: Rescue Squad, Special Ops: Crime Squad, Cop Car Workshop, Inside the Operating Theatre, Nurses Down Under and The Shift : Women on the Force.

Meanwhile, UKTV Play Laughs is home to comedy favorites such as Hypothetical, Mel Giedroyc: Unforgivable, Judge Romesh and Comedians Giving Lectures.

UKTV Play Full Throttle takes viewers in the air, on the tracks and on the road, with all things plane, train and automobile.

Expect shows like Bangers & Cash, Architecture the Railways Built, Warbird Workshop, Yianni: Supercar Customizer, Secrets of the Railways, Train Truckers, Impossible Railways, Secrets of the London Underground, and Modern Wheels or Classic Steals.

And UKTV Play Uncovered caters to those interested in history and technology, with everything from Abandoned Engineering and Forbidden History to World War 2 From Above and War Factories.

The channels are the latest in a huge lineup of so-called FAST channels – free streaming TV supported by ads.

“FAST is a fantastic opportunity to reach new audiences with our extensive catalog of content and showcase a wide range of genres across the four new channels,” said Jonathan Newman of UKTV.

“Thanks to the hard work of a group of passionate experts from across UKTV, our new FAST channels will be a valuable addition to the existing network of channels and help strengthen the UKTV Play streaming service by further expanding its reach.”
