Amazon Recast DVR is nearly three weeks away from release date. Since it’s announcement, there have been pre-release changes and improvements, it’s been evolving even before coming through the starting gate.
Pluto TV channels will be available in the Recast Guide / Grid, right along with your OTA channel lineup. Users may select all, some or none, to appear in the guide. For those who wish to incorporate some or all of Pluto’s offerings, they will not be mixed in with OTA, but appear in a separate grouping, just below the OTA channels.
So you’ll be able to scroll through your OTA channels, then find the list of Pluto channels in a separate grouping after that.
For those wishing to see some of their favorite Pluto TV channels without having to scroll through the end of OTA, you can mark them as “Favorites” and they’ll be in your Favorites group in addition to the Pluto grouping.
Although you will be able to see these in the Channel guide, you will (of course) not be able to record any of the Pluto TV content. Fantastic ancillary benefit, nonetheless.
