Toronto, ON (December 6, 2017) – Blue Ant Media announced today that it has partnered with Samsung Electronics Canada to launch its Love Nature 4K streaming service, which offers the world’s largest library of 4K (UItra-HD) wildlife and nature documentaries and series, on 2017 Samsung Tizen Smart TVs. As part of the partnership, Samsung Smart TV owners on the Tizen platform in Canada are being offered a free three-month trial of the streaming app loaded with more than 300 hours of Love Nature’s breathtaking natural history programming. Samsung Smart TV owners in Canada, who activate their free trial subscription, will also have exclusive access for the next three months to Alaskan Summer, a stunning Love Nature original 4K and HDR one-hour documentary, which also includes six short-form episodes, showcasing the fascinating relationship between wildlife and nature during the arctic summer season.
As part of the launch, Love Nature will be included on the Samsung Smart Menu for all Samsung Smart TVs on the Tizen platform, including the QLED TV that showcases true to life picture quality and vibrant colour.
“This partnership connects Samsung world-class technology and Love Nature 4K’s premium content experiences to a passionate audience,” said Jesse Dallal, Vice President of Digital Products. “Love Nature’s documentaries and original series in 4K and HDR take people closer to incredible wildlife and unreachable environments and we’re excited to work with Samsung to bring these experiences to its Smart TV customers.”
Beginning this month, Love Nature and Samsung are also rolling out a series of promotional initiatives to support the launch of the streaming service. Samsung will support the special three-month trial in its Smart TV app store and promote the extended trial, the exclusive content and other features on its social platforms and online. A Love Nature 4K/HDR sizzle reel will also be showcased on Samsung display TVs in retail locations across Canada.
Alaskan Summer, a Love Nature original documentary, showcases the natural beauty and complex, intertwined relationships between water, plant and animal species during the bountiful arctic season. Filmed in cutting edge High Dynamic Range (HDR), details and colours come to life, expanding what the viewer is able to see, creating a more spectacular and immersive visual experience and revealing the majesty of the northern state as it’s never been seen before. Nearly 20 hours of sunlight a day feed the season of abundance. Warmth unlocks water from the glaciers, ice caves and waterfalls. The water crashes into countless streams of the Inside Passage, feeding forest and wildlife alike. From June to August, Alaska becomes a paradise for its wildlife. Salmon rush from the sea to spawn, bears grow fat on summer’s bounty, and Stellar sea lions bask in the sun. It’s a short but crucial season for the animals. The water and sun need to be used or the long winter ahead could be fatal.
Love Nature brings audiences closer to the beauty and wonder of nature, sharing awe-inspiring stories and shining a light on the fight for survival in a changing world. Commercial-free and shot in the highest quality, Love Nature offers viewers exclusive content from around the globe. See animals in their natural habitat and visit some of the world’s most awe-inspiring landscapes through Love Nature’s unfiltered, premium content. Love Nature is available internationally via linear television in HD and 4k, as well as a video streaming service. lovenature.com
