Love Pets, Homeful FAST Channels Added to VIZIO WatchFree+


Blue Ant Media’s Love Pets and Homeful FAST channels have been added to VIZIO WatchFree+ in the U.S.

The Love Pets channel features stories about the animals in our lives and the people who care for them. This includes programming such as Bondi Vet, which takes viewers into an emergency vet clinic in Australia as it saves the lives of beloved pets and exotic animals.

Other titles in the Love Pets lineup are Vet on the Hill, following the day-to-day life of veterinarian Dr. Scott Miller at his busy clinic in a small U.K. town; ER Vets, centering on a group of vets at a 24/7 trauma center; The Bizarre Pet Vets, starring Dr. James and his team as they treat bizarre animals in Australia; and Hope for Wildlife, taking a look at the wildlife rescue team led by Hope Swinimer.

Homeful includes notable real estate, renovation and transformation series and is home to Mike Holmes’ catalog of home series and specials, including Holmes on Homes, Holmes Makes it Right, Holmes + Holmes, Holmes on Homes Special: Lien on Me and more.

Additional programming on the channel includes Sarah off the Grid, seeing Sarah Richardson build an eco-friendly home; Coolest Places to Stay, providing a peek inside some of the most unique, handcrafted short-term rentals; Brojects, starring brothers Kevin and Andrew, who create quirky build projects at their weekend getaway home; and Moving the McGillivrays, following Scott McGillivray as he builds a family home while also building a house for a family in need.

The two channels join Blue Ant Media’s other channels Love Nature, Haunt TV and Drag Race Universe on VIZIO WatchFree+.

“We have an incredibly collaborative and successful relationship with VIZIO, and we’re thrilled to add some of our fastest growing FAST channels, Homeful and Love Pets, to the WatchFree+ platform,” said Jamie Schouela, president of global channels and media at Blue Ant Media.

“WatchFree+ continues to strengthen its programming through bingeable genres like home decor, DIY, nature and animal content thanks to our expanding relationship with Blue Ant Media,” added Greg Barnard, director of content acquisition at VIZIO. “We look forward to adding more content that provides users the most out of their free experience.”
