Pluto TV not loading through built-in app/Smartcast on Vizio display

Anyone experience loading issues with some of the built-in apps? Specifically Pluto TV doesn't load any videos and displays the three little dots as if it's loading, but it does display the tv listings so it's connected and receiving data. I tried resetting the display back to factory settings in an attempt to 'clear the cache', but it didn't work. It's just hung up on Pluto, which is a bummer because I've actually gotten use to watching it's content.

I have a Vizio E55-E2 4K Theatre Display with built in Chrome/Smartcast, purchased in 2017.

Is this a good question?

I have the same problem on my E55 with Pluto only, all other apps working fine. Tried all the same things, help! Might be a global issue with Pluto on these displays, works ok on another TV in the house with Chromecast.

Nice - it's back! Now my kids can watch their cat channel (good grief). Well it was helpful knowing it was not just me experiencing the problem - thanks!
