Walmart Plus subscribers can now watch a selection of Pluto TV videos without having to sit through the ads. The ad-free Pluto TV experience is just the latest benefit bundled with Walmart’s subscription service and an extension of the existing Paramount Plus deal.
Back in 2022, Paramount and Walmart announced a deal which resulted in Walmart Plus customers being able to get a free Paramount Plus subscription. This benefit unlocks access to the Paramount Plus Essential plan, which is an ad-supported subscription.
Pluto TV is already a free, ad-supported service so there isn’t any way to offer additional content for free. That said, there is the option to make some of the free content available to watch ad-free, and that’s exactly what has now happened.
The change is already live so existing Walmart Plus customers will find that the option to watch ad-free Pluto TV is listed as a benefit on their Walmart Plus account page. From there, they can enable the offer by clicking on the link which will redirect them to Pluto TV to create an account or log in with an existing account.
It is worth noting that only select titles are available to watch ad-free with the vast majority of the Pluto TV catalog still including ads. The selection of ad-free content is expected to rotate over time, so even if none of the available ad-free videos interest you today, some might next week or next month.
Also, if you are a T-Mobile customer then you are eligible for a similar ad-free Pluto TV experience. Similar to the Walmart Plus benefit, T-Mobile customers also have to enable the deal by linking their T-Mobile account to Pluto TV and this can be done through the T-Mobile Tuesdays app.
For those that might be considering signing up to Walmart Plus to take advantage of ad-free Pluto TV and/or free Paramount Plus, a subscription costs $12.95 per month (or $98 per year) following a 30-day free trial.
