TheSoul Publishing has announced its partnership with Samsung to bring several of TheSoul’s globally popular brands to Samsung TV Plus in key European territories. With the leading TV manufacturer’s service reaching 24 countries, the collaboration enhances TheSoul’s global distribution to additional smart TV devices.
To continue its expansion of delivering free content to viewers across the globe, TheSoul Publishing is releasing both 5-Minute Crafts and TeenVee as English- and Spanish-language versions on Samsung’s FAST service.
