BUZZR on Pluto TV?
« on: October 26, 2018, 07:41:09 PM »
The app’s website lists BUZZR as one of its channels, but it won’t let me tune directly to it, nor does it show on my channel guide, either on the iPhone or Roku apps.

Can anybody get it?

I poke around a site called Radio Insight, and recently someone started a thread claiming they had a back-door link to Buzzr via Pluto TV. 

The link to the thread:  https://radioinsight.com/community/topic/buzzr-tv-programming-on-pluto-tv-a-certain-internet-video-service/

Pluto TV "backdoor" link to Buzzr:  http://pluto.tv/watch/buzzr?clip=5b9ac869fadbb577d9e4e1c6

I tried his link in the initial post, but only got a static image from Pluto TV.

brings up the “Rat Pack” music channel for me, but I can stream from Buzzr’s site on my laptop anyway.  Hopefully something happens with the Roku app soon.

Buzzr just posted to social media that they're officially on Pluto TV channel 514, but I'm not seeing it on the channel lineup yet.

Its also in their channel lineup on their Web site, I saw (which was enough to get me to register for an account with them), but yeah, not showing up yet otherwise. Will be quite useful for Roku and Fire Stick users. (Wish there was an Xbox app; guess I'll have to keep using my Plex stream there for now.)

Good Morning! We are so excited to announce that you will find #BUZZR on Pluto TV today! Download Pluto TV free and watch BUZZR 24/7 (CH 514) soon!

With that last word in their post above, I'll take a stab and say "soon" will be November 1st.

They're now apologizing for jumping the gun and saying it will be on Pluto soon.

I suspect the problem is they need an actual editor and they meant to say "We are so excited to announce today that you will find #BUZZR on Pluto TV!"

It's showing on my Pluto guide finally, but only on the website. Not on Roku yet.

Yep, I see it too. Can you not set favorites on the website?

EDIT: Amusingly, they acknowledge it exists in the Favorites / Block Channels list on the iPad, but you still can't tune it yet. :)

Not sure what you mean. Are you asking if it can be played on an AirPlay drvice (like an AppleTV) from an iOS device? If so, I can check in a bit, but at the same time I'm 90% sure PlutoTV would have a native AppleTV app so you wouldn't need to.

EDIT: The only AirPlay device I have is a hacky app on a Fire TV, so this isn't 100% tested, but: PlutoTV on iOS does not have native AirPlay, though screen mirroring worked just fine. (And PlutoTV *does* have a native AppleTV app.)

Yes. AirPlay. My bad. Thank you.

BUZZR is available on the Android app.  The PS4 version does not have it yet.
