Five hundred hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute, so you’ll literally never be able to watch everything. The real challenge is sorting through everything that you could be watching and deciding what sounds good—like you could in the old days of TV.
Why can’t you channel surf the web, the way you used to surf cable channels? That is the question PlutoTV tries to answer, and it does a pretty good job. There are live TV stations, including The Weather Network and Bloomberg News. But there are also “channels” offering videos you can find elsewhere online, curated into a format that feels just like flipping through TV. And best of all: it’s completely free (and legal).
