November 1, 2023

BBC Studios has announced the launch of the Top Gear FAST channel in Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands, exclusively on Samsung TV Plus. This marks BBC Studios’ debut in the FAST channel market within the Benelux region.

Already available in Spain through Samsung TV Plus, the Top Gear channel is part of BBC Studios’ expanding FAST portfolio. In the EMEA region, BBC Studios has partnered with Samsung for nearly three years, with all existing EMEA FAST brands available on Samsung TV Plus. These brands include the Doctor Who channel in Spain, Italy, France, and Germany, BBC Drama in Spain, Italy, and France, and BBC Food, BBC Travel, and BBC History in Germany.

The FAST channel in Benelux devoted to the Top Gear brand will showcase episodes from seasons 14 to 22 in original English audio and Dutch subtitles, giving Samsung TV Plus users access to hundreds of hours of content for free.

Kasia Jablonska, Head of VoD for EMEA at BBC Studios, said: “I’m excited to see Top Gear‘s global motoring legacy finding new life in Benelux to satisfy the needs of our motoring fandom locally. Having a partner like Samsung in developing our FAST proposition ensures that our exquisite BBC content reaches new audiences and is delivered through a top-level viewing experience, which has always been our highest priority”.

Jennifer Batty, Samsung TV Plus’s European Head of Content Acquisition, added: “We’re very excited to be the exclusive FAST home of Top Gear in the Benelux region. Top Gear is an iconic series, with countless classic episodes, and the launch of these channels further demonstrates our commitment to bringing premium entertainment content to our users across Europe for free”.
