And finally, the iconic American period drama Mad Men has joined the Entertainment Hub, another one of Samsung TV Plus’s popular channels.

The Sopranos and Mad Men – both part of the golden age of television and both lauded as the greatest television series of all time – have now found a new home in FAST, allowing even more audiences to discover these incredible shows for the first time, or for old fans to rediscover and watch over and over again – all in a free-to-access environment. ”
