Step 2 - Once you've generated your feed, simply copy the feed URL to clipboard and you're ready to go!

Make sure you double-check the feed contents to ensure this reflects the video content you'd like to deliver to Pluto TV. Then please send the feed URL to your account contact at Pluto TV to complete QA and delivery.

Can I customize the feed once generated? 

Yes! You are able to customize the Pluto TV MRSS feeds by adding parameters to the feed URL that is generated in the Zype platform. Here are some example parameters that can be added to the MRSS feed URL along with an explanation of what they do:

page= Determines which page of the MRSS feed is being viewed when results have been paginated. If unspecified the default page shown is page 1 Any integer between 1 - unlimited.
