SPI/FilmBox's ad-supported digital channel Filmstream will arrive in Sweden with Samsung TV Plus, Samsung Electronics’ free streaming service. “We are very excited to expand our long-standing partnership with Samsung TV Plus to include the Swedish market for our well-received FAST channel Filmstream,” Georgina Twiss, MD Western Europe & Africa at SPI International, said.
Starting this month, Samsung TV Plus users in the region can access hundreds of hours of titles by tuning in to channel number 4969. “This is the fifth market in which Filmstream has launched with Samsung TV Plus - following UK, Australia, India, and the Netherlands - and the first of a string of launches to come in the new year,” added Twiss.
Filmstream’s current slate features independent films from popular directors such as Hitchcock, Kurosawa, Fellini, and many others. Filmstream plans to expand its line-up with Hollywood blockbusters and popular hits in the future.
The platform offers a slate of 100% free ad-supported content spanning news, sports, entertainment, movies, and an ever-growing number of channels, with new channels being added every month in Sweden. The service comes pre-installed on Samsung Smart TVs from 2017 onwards and users are not required to register in order to stream the content offered.
