(London, UK – August 12, 2021) – Love Nature, a wildlife and nature brand with linear and streaming platforms reaching 366 million households worldwide, announced today its debut as a free, ad-supported streaming channel (FAST) on Samsung TV Plus in Spain. Love Nature is the first natural history brand on Samsung TV Plus in Spain, bringing audiences on the platform access to 100 hours of Love Nature’s award-winning programming localised in Castilian, all free of charge. The deal, which was brokered by Julio Sobral, SVP, Latam & U.S. Channel Distribution, Love Nature, further builds on Love Nature’s partnership with Samsung TV Plus, following the channel’s launch earlier this year as FAST channel in the U.S. market.
“Partnering with Samsung TV Plus to launch Love Nature as a FAST channel is an important step in expanding our reach as a multi-platform channel brand in EMEA,” says Carlyn Staudt, Global General Manager, Love Nature. “We’ve seen tremendous success for Love Nature on FAST and AVOD channels in the U.S. market and we know that audiences in Spain will also love our curated programming line-up of stunning wildlife and nature content on Samsung TV Plus’ highly accessible, free-of-charge platform.”
