My pluto tv only shows mtvs. Is there anything else I should do to get more than this?
I also have only 50 channels from 1001 to 1049. I do not know what settings or what else to do...

You'll need to setup a smart DNS service or VPN to a US Server.
Once connected to a US vpn server you'll have a total of 105 channels.
You'll notice that there's a new list of live news channels from 105 to 143.
Other non live channels will be from channels 202 to 935.
You'll also have access to a list of On Demand movies which are quite good na wala sa ordinary pluto tv access..  ;D

You can load all these channels under Live Channels app along with haystack and puppetmaster tv.

Yeah. I think that's it. The app for asia is for mobile phones only. i was able to install it via usb, but the interface is not optimized for android tv.
try sideloading HBO GO android tv. though I'm not sure if the app works with asia region. Let us know if it works. :)
I'm an HBO NOW subscriber and I'm using the HBO NOW android TV app with our Mi Box.
Both HBO GO and HBO NOW for android tv almost shares the same ui.

btw, try sideloading the aptoide tv app. http://m.aptoide.com/installer-aptoide-tv

For the smart DNS option you can use Getflix. You can create an account for a free 14 day trial.
for the vpn option i'm currently running a diy openvpn server on a cheap VPS running CentOS located in the US.
but before that i was using VPN Unlimited via openvpn app for android tv until it expired.
I recommend using  Getflix. After setting up the DNS servers in your router then its good to go.

Smart DNS is very easy and simple to setup.
Just go to the Getflix site and sign up a new account for a 14 day trial.
After that, you just need to access your router and change your dns server to Getflix's dns server.
Go to the Getflix Dashboard and click the force IP update then select the region where you want to get connected.
After that, all you devices connected the router will have access to US Netflix/hulu/HBO NOW/pluto tv  and more.

Akin di naman.. mine is always locked at 1080p 60hz.
Make sure that "Auto Switch to best resolution" is off.

@nerveblocker,

I think the discounted price for 24 months isn't bad at all.

I tried the 14 day trial and inputted the DDNS of Getflix on my Android tablet.  Played Pluto TV and got more additional channels. It works!

ok, thanks

question lang din, when using Kodi, do you still need to use VPN pa? or do you only use that if may content na limited to certain countries?

vpn is optional unless you're trying to access region locked.

Afaik, yung gumagamit ng vpn for kodi mostly mga taga US and other countries para di masilip ng ISP nila na they're streaming movies and more. On my end I use vpn or smartdns to access geo blocked services like netflix (US and other region), hulu, hbo now, sling tv, pluto tv and more.

A pecualiarity of using multi-bay external hdd enclosures with android boxes is that you can't predict the order in which the hdds will get mounted. This will not go well if you plan on using kodi and scrape information for your files.
