Fuse Beat Launches in the U.K.


The Fuse Media FAST channel Fuse Beat has made its international debut in the U.K. via Samsung TV Plus.

Earlier this year, Fuse Media secured international content licensing deals for Fuse Beat with rlaxx TV, MTN, LingoPie and Telkom SA.

Fuse Beat includes more than 100 hours of content celebrating Black culture and its contributions to global pop culture. The channel was launched in partnership with Quincy Newell’s TwentyOne14 Media and Cinedigm and offers a lineup of Hollywood movies, original series, specials and documentaries.

Fuse Media CEO Miguel “Mike” Roggero said: “Fuse’s brand of authentic, empowering entertainment is universal. As we continue to grow the Fuse audience outside of the U.S., our commitment to amplifying and celebrating authentic voices remains paramount. The U.K. has a thriving multicultural community, and we’re proud to offer Fuse Beat’s diverse content to new audiences.”

TwentyOne14 Media’s Quincy Newell added: “We are excited to expand the Fuse Beat footprint into the U.K. in partnership with Samsung. Audiences worldwide are demanding experiences where they feel their interests are catered to and their images are properly represented. It is our vision to answer that call by providing a premium and culturally relevant product to an engaged global audience that is passionate about Black culture, and I think we’ve achieved that with Fuse Beat.”
