WildBrain Extends FAST Partnership with Samsung TV Plus


WildBrain has launched new FAST channels for its Teletubbies, Strawberry Shortcake, Caillou, Sonic and Super Mario brands on Samsung TV Plus in Australia and New Zealand.

The company also plans to launch 27 new channels on the platform in multiple other territories later this year. This includes debuting a Strawberry Shortcake channel in the U.K., Brazil and Mexico; a Sonic channel in the U.K. and Italy; and a Teletubbies channel in Brazil and Mexico.

These new channels will add to the 29 WildBrain channels already on Samsung TV Plus across the U.S., Canada, the U.K., France, Germany, Spain and Italy, nearly doubling the number of the company’s channels on the platform.

“FAST is a cutting-edge and strategic opportunity for IP owners to engage their fans wherever they’re watching, with ‘always-on’ channels serving up dedicated, 24/7 streams of content in a curated kid-safe environment,” said Lara Ilie, VP of AVOD and FAST at WildBrain. “We’re delighted to extend our position as the leader in the FAST space for kids’ brands through this expansion of our partnership with Samsung TV Plus.”
