Wedotv expands FAST line-up and launches in new territories

Swiss-based AVOD and FAST channel outfit wedotv has refreshed and expanded its line-up of channels.

Wedo big docs, which started in September 2022 in cooperation with Big Media Holdings, will expand its programming in the non-fiction area at the end of January 2023 and will be renamed wedo big stories.

Wedotv’s line-up of FAST channels, which have so far been distributed mainly in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the UK, will also be launched this year in other countries in Europe and Africa as well as in the USA.

Philipp Rotermund, co-CEO and founder of the wedotv parent company Video Solutions AG, said: “We have further expanded the range of programmes and the distribution of our AVoD service wedotv and the FAST Channels in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Great Britain in 2022. The number of active users has more than doubled compared to the previous year. This puts us in the best possible position for expansion outside of our core markets.”

Chris Sharp, Rotermund’s partner as co-CEO and founder, said: “Our channels focus on film genres such as drama, comedy and horror, as well as TV series and documentaries. We added many new viewers in 2022 with the acquisition of lifestyle content and live sports rights for sports like horse racing and sailing,” said Sharp. “We are therefore aiming to conclude more such deals this year in order to launch attractive genre-specific channels in our core markets and internationally.”
