Pluto TV is bringing classic geek television to celebrate SDCC, and the whole schedule has been announced. Starting July 18, Pluto TV turns into “Nerd Heaven,” and kicks off a schedule of classic television that will run through the end of July. 

The event starts July 18 with sci-fi thrillers, including Debug and Moon. On July 20, a Doctor Who marathon begins, streaming episodes of the classic sci-fi series like “Trial of the Time Lord” and “Time and the Rani.” On July 23, a Naruto marathon celebrates Sasuke’s birthday. 

On July 21 & 22, Pluto TV will be live streaming from SDCC on its IGN channel. This is in addition to the network’s 24/7 channels, including a brand-new Godzilla channel.
