WaterBear Network, the free streaming platform dedicated to sustainability and the future of the planet, has announced the continued expansion of its linear FAST channel on Samsung TV Plus across Spain and Italy.
Available to Samsung’s Smart TV and select Galaxy device users, viewers of the channel will have access to all of WaterBear Network’s original content. This follows the launch of WaterBear Network’s first FAST channel on Samsung TV Plus in the UK, Netherlands and Sweden in March.
WaterBear Network is available across 194 countries and produces content spanning biodiversity, community, circularity, climate action and sustainable fashion. Founded by the Executive Producer of Oscar-winning My Octopus Teacher, Ellen Windemuth, WaterBear Network’s content connects viewers with critical global issues and the campaigns of more than 100 NGOs.
Samsung TV Plus is a free, ad-supported video service available in the UK and 15 other European territories installed on all 2017-2021 Samsung Smart TVs, and available for download from the Google Play and Galaxy Store on Samsung Galaxy smartphones and tablets in select territories.
Head of Distribution at WaterBear Network, Oliver Taprogge, commented: “Following our launch in the UK, Netherlands and Sweden we’re delighted to be launching our FAST channel on Samsung TV Plus in Italy and Spain. Content producers, channel owners and device manufacturers must utilise the entire ecosystem to provide audiences with the content they want, where they want. The rise of FAST channels speaks to the change in content consumption. Samsung is at the forefront of this and the perfect partner to ensure our content inspires and educates their viewers. The expansion of this partnership highlights the powerful selection of content on offer and the growing desire of consumers to view content that speaks to their own values. With the WaterBear platform now already available across 194 countries, this European expansion is a major step in sharing the world’s most important social and environmental stories.”
