SPI International’s Filmstream FAST channel extends Samsung TV Plus reach in Nordics

Canal+-owned channel provider SPI International has secured a berth for its free ad-supported streaming TV (FAST) channel, Filmstream, on Samsung TV Plus in Norway, Finland, and Denmark.

The channel offers viewers access to a range of independent and classic movies.
Filmstream’s current catalogue includes independent world cinema and classic movies from directors such as Hitchcock, Kurosawa, Fellini and others. Filmstream plans to expand its line-up with Hollywood blockbusters and popular hits in the future.
“We are delighted to build on our partnership with Samsung TV Plus by launching Filmstream in three additional territories. Filmstream has proven to be a popular channel among viewers worldwide, and we are thrilled to make it available to even more viewers through Samsung TV Plus following the launches in the UK, India, Sweden, Netherlands and Australia,” said Georgina Twiss, MD of Western Europe and Africa at SPI International.
Haymi Behar, CDO and CMO of SPI International, said, “Digital expansion has been our top priority in the past few years, especially when considering how rapidly the way in which we consume content is changing. We are proud to offer viewers multiple windows of digitally accessible and curated content through our FAST channel products like Filmstream. We look forward to strengthening our partnership with Samsung TV Plus even further.”

SPI International currently offers two FAST channels – Filmstream and Docustream – which are available in various territories on platforms including Pluto TV, Samsung TV Plus, Rakuten TV, and Amazon’s IMDb TV.

Behar recently said that the channel provider aimed to expand its FAST channels offering with at least two more channels.
