SPI’s Docustream and Filmstream launch in Netherlands on Samsung TV Plus

SPI/FilmBox has announced the expansion of its ad-supported digital channels Docustream and Filmstream to the Netherlands.

Available via Samsung TV Plus from mid-August, the channels will provide viewers with hundreds of hours of content. 

As the titles of the channels would suggest, Docustream is oriented around documentary features and TV programming, while Filmstream presents independent world cinema gems and classic movies from storied directors such as Hitchcock, Kurosawa and Fellini. 

Samsung TV Plus launched in the Netherlands earlier in 2021, and has since built up a portfolio of more than 20 free ad-supported channels. Filmstream is currently available to watch on select Samsung devices in India, UK and Australia with more launches to be announced in the coming months.

Georgina Twiss, MD Western Europe & Africa at SPI International, said: “It brings us great pleasure to expand our partnership with Samsung TV Plus to another key Western European market for SPI with the launch of our new documentary AVOD channel Docustream and the well-received Filmstream. Now, Samsung TV Plus viewers in the Netherlands can enjoy some of the best documentary features and world cinema gems acquired from top producers and distributors with specially curated Docustream and Filmstream programming slates.”
