    I wasn’t able to find this on my lg Oled tv. I did pull it up online and downloaded the app onto my phone.

    I guess it is on the fire stick and Apple TV.

    Samsung smart TVs can add the channel but not lg smart TVs?

    I saw a few minutes of Thunderball earlier and it's cropped to 16x9.

    Todd,

    What do you watch on that service and does everything have commercial breaks in them?

    I'll watch old My Cat From Hell reruns, MST3K and RiffTrax shows, the many different news channels, plus they have a nice Christmas lights and Yule log channels that are nice to have on in the background during the holidays. Yes, there are commercials, but that is how it can be a free service.

    The Christmas Lights and Yule Log channels usually don't have commercials.

    LG's WebOS has a similar service but can't remember what it's called.

    You should be able to cast it from your laptop or phone.

    I watch it sometimes.
    It’s on Roku and Apple TV.

    It’s a stream that doesn’t allow ff or rw or pause but most of the content is also there as on-demand.

    I usually only have. MST3K on.

    Channel Plus, powered by Xumo. It's integrated into the off-air TV tuner so after going past the last available station it starts showing those channels. Would watch the news channels more if they could get the frame rate to match that of live TV.

    The price is pretty good(!), but trying to watch “You Only Live Twice” and I bailed due to excessive commercials. I have not Googled, but I don’t think it was in OAR either.

    I didn’t see Pluto listed in the extra channels.
    Is there one of the approved lg apps that I can load that has Pluto for my lg Oled?

    Or am I stuck with fire stick or Apple TV only? I don’t have either

    I'm thinking if you're someone who doesn't own any of the Bond movies, a free channel providing free Bond movies would be utterly useful, but maybe I'm weird...

    Which is exactly what I'm not. That's why I said it's utterly useless to me.
