Video platform provider Alchimie and Samsung’s TV Plus platform have extended their partnership to provide a range of themed VoD channels to millions of Samsung Smart TV viewers across the UK, Spain, France and Italy.
The 30+ themed channels on offer are all populated and updated by Alchimie’s 60,000 hour, multilanguage premium-content library.
Additionally, the partnership has seen the debut of Alchimie’s first scripted channel, Movies Central by TVPlayer, on Samsung’s TV Plus platform. The channel gives viewers in France and the UK access to must-see films from all genres.
Alchimie says its platform, distribution technology, library and dynamic approach provides Samsung’s TV Plus flexibility both in the range of channels and the content offered. Alchimie’s channels are populated with exclusive curations or ‘playlists’ of content designed around channel themes.
“The cornerstone to this flexibility is Alchimie’s library of premium multilanguage content, one of the largest in the world, which provides exclusive access to trusted premium programming, allowing channel editors to refresh content playlists regularly, match viewers’ interests and stay relevant to global and local events,” said Alchimie’s statement.
Nicolas d’Hueppe, CEO/Alchimie, added: “Samsung’s European audience is large, multilanguage and discerning. With Alchimie’s inspiring library and technology we can create themed channels that are well populated and agile – designed to appeal to those audiences with high-standards and special interests. Together with Samsung we make sure there is something for everyone to watch, wherever you are, and whatever your interests are.”
Samsung TV Plus comes pre-installed on post-2016 Samsung smart TVs. With more than 300 channels, the service is currently available in Germany, Italy, Switzerland, France, UK, Austria and Spain.
