March 31, 2021
SPI/FilmBox AVoD platform Filmstream, which offers a wide range of independent and classic movies, is now available in India via Samsung TV Plus.
“We are thrilled to witness the increasing demand for our cutting-edge product Filmstream, designed specifically for those who appreciate the art of cinema,” commented Georgina Twiss, MD Western Europe and Africa at SPI International. “We are excited to bring the specially-curated selection of Filmstream to more territories with Samsung TV Plus, the premium at-home destination for Samsung Smart TV users.”
Samsung had announced their plans to roll out Samsung TV Plus in India along with several other European markets, late last year. Viewers in India will now be able to watch Filmstream via Samsung TV Plus which comes pre-installed on Samsung Smart TVs dating back to 2017 and offers ad-supported content spanning news, sports, entertainment, movies and more. Filmstream will also launch on Samsung Galaxy smartphones later in April 2021.
Filmstream’s current catalogue includes independent world cinema gems and classic movies from iconic directors such as Hitchcock, Kurosawa, Fellini and many others.
SPI’s Filmstream is currently available on Samsung TV Plus in the UK and Australia with more launches coming soon.
