The channel will also feature the MGM-produced Stargate TV series. It will have seasons 1 through 5 of Stargate SG-1, the first two seasons of Stargate Atlantis and the full series (two seasons) of Stargate Universe.

In April, Pluto TV will also be showing the first episode of Halo, which quickly became the most-watched premiere of an original series on Paramount Plus, and Halo: The Series Declassified. The shows will appear on the Paramount Plus Picks channel. ■
