Watch4 Launches FAST Movie Channel


Watch4 has launched a new FAST channel, Watch4 Movies, across smart TV platforms in Germany, Switzerland and Austria.

Watch4 Movies, featuring collections of movies from genres such as horror, drama, comedy, mystery and action, can be accessed via Samsung TV Plus, LG Channels, Rakuten TV, Philips, TCL and Xiaomi, among others. In addition to its normal selection, the channel will host seasonal and themed collections, such as Summer of Love and Christmas Classics.

The FAST movie channel will be made available in additional European markets in Q4 and into 2022.

“We have seen Watch4 grow as an AVOD platform massively over the past three years, but as FAST platforms become another great place for consumers to discover the content they love, we wanted to extend our brand and curated collections to this space as well,” said Philipp Rotermund, CEO of Watch4. “Watch4 Movies has been designed to be a more traditional linear TV watching experience for FAST platforms’ audiences. In this fractured TV market, it is more important than ever to be wherever viewers are enjoying content.”
