FilmRise announced that Smart TV LG will expand its FAST channel offerings with the launch of a suite of FAST channels across North America, UK, Ireland and the Nordics in addition to popular FilmRise AVOD content for the LG Channels service. FAST channels include some of FilmRise’s most popular titles including “Forensic Files,” “Unsolved Mysteries,” “Heartland,” “21Jump Street,” “Hell’s Kitchen” and “FilmRise Free Movies”.
Several popular FilmRise FAST channels had been featured on LG Channels in the past, leading to the mutual desire to expand globally with a focus on FAST. FilmRise was an early mover in developing FAST channels and remains an industry leader.
Danny Fisher, CEO of FilmRise, comments, “Our partnership with LG Electronics has proven to be an incredibly fruitful one and we are thrilled to be adding these FAST Channels for LG consumers to enjoy. This deal represents our aggressive initiative in expanding our global footprint into new territories through collaborations with connected devices.”

With more than 350 channels and rapidly growing, LG TV owners can easily discover their favorite programs by launching the LG Channels application on their LG TV’s webOS platform (LG smart TV models 2016-present).
