Narrative Entertainment launches into the FAST TV Space

Published on: 15th November 2022

The launch heralds the debut of POP Kids on Samsung TV Plus, making its content accessible to an even wider audience.

Narrative Entertainment has made its first foray into the FAST (free, ad-supported streaming TV) market with the launch of Pop Kids, Great! movies and Great! christmas channels on Samsung TV Plus. These new, ad-supported live channels extend the offering of the Pop networks by providing families and movie-lovers with another place to watch globally renowned films and shows, for free via the internet.

CTV specialist Media16, run by Simon Poole and Joe Evea, is the exclusive sales house managing the advertising and sponsorship sales on Narrative Entertainment’s FAST channels. Commenting on the move, Simon told Toy World: “I’m delighted to be working back in the kids arena with Narrative Entertainment, as it expands its existing footprint into the rapidly growing FAST space. Pop Kids represents an exciting opportunity for brands to reach children in a premium, digital environment with their existing TV advertising content.”

FAST stands for free, ad-supported streaming TV services. Simon explains further: “Essentially, this is streaming live TV, using an internet connection rather than an arial – it’s the equivalent of Freeview for internet connected TVs.”

Pop Kids has a wealth of strong content, such as Pokémon Journeys, Care Bears: Unlock the Magic, and Cookie Monster’s Foodie Truck, as well as fan favourites like Miraculous and Dragon Ball Super.

Samsung TV Plus is free TV, with no subscription needed. Pre-installed on all 2016-2022 Samsung Smart TVs, and available for download, Samsung TV Plus instantly delivers an ever-growing number of channels across multiple genres including news, sports and entertainment, as well as a VOD library of popular movies and shows. The free, ad-supported video service is available in the UK and in 15 other European territories.
