Mech+ & Global Distribution Services Partner for FAST Channel


Mech+ and Global Distribution Services have forged a partnership to launch a FAST channel on Freeview in the U.K.

Mech+ is dedicated to bringing viewers science, engineering and robotics content, including the robot combat competition series Robot Wars. Robot Wars sees amateurs and professionals clash with destructive remote-controlled robots in a steel arena.

“We are beyond excited to launch Mech+ via Freeview and leverage state-of-the-art technology to expand this excellent TV channel to the U.K.’s largest TV platform,” said Tanya Kronfli, managing director of Global Distribution Services, specializing in delivery and digital monetization of TV content via Freeview.

Nick Rees, COO of Mech+, added, “We’re very excited to be working with Global Distribution Services. Mech+ has been a massive hit since we launched last year. Making it available on Freeview was an obvious next step to meet the needs of our constantly evolving audience, providing the viewers with exactly what they want to watch around the clock, free of charge.”
