Da Vinci’s New FAST Channel Launches in the U.S.


The family edutainment channel Da Vinci has expanded its FAST distribution with a launch on Sling Free in the U.S.

With a special focus on STEM, creativity, critical thinking and social-emotional learning across all genre categories, Da Vinci is home to shows such as Science Max, Operation Ouch!, Siyaya: Come Wild with Us, The Pet Rescuers and more. The channel also features exclusive and original in-house productions, including the BAFTA-nominated show Search It Up and the upcoming holiday series Marvellous Makes.

Da Vinci’s newly launched FAST channel is now available for all Sling users to stream for free, without any payment or credit card required. The channel will continue its FAST rollout to streaming TV audiences across America on TCL Channel’s free streaming service available on TCL TVs, powered by Roku and Google smart TV systems.

Founder and COO Estelle Lloyd said: “It’s our mission to support and entertain families by providing a high-quality, edutainment experience for co-viewing. Da Vinci streams positivity and values-driven, feel-good content 24/7. We feel this is especially important in the post-Covid era.”

Lloyd added: “These launches are significant as they remove the biggest barrier, the paywall, and expose us to new and fresh audiences. We can reach so many more homes and devices and, for us, that’s significant in fulfilling our purpose. We’re delighted to work with Sling and TCL and very keen to partner with more FAST platforms.”
