Sony to launch free ad-supported TV channels on LG, Samsung TVs

28 Mar 2024 | Rasmus Larsen |

Sony Pictures will next month launch 8 free ad-supported streaming channels in 9 European countries. They will be available through LG, Samsung and TiVo devices.

Launching the 8 streaming channels, known as Sony One, on competing TV platforms is certainly an interesting development. Sony Pictures stated that it is part of a strategy to make it content "available to everyone, wherever they are".

- "Sony Pictures recognizes the potential of the free ad-supported television space to engage new viewers globally with our extensive feature film and TV series catalog spanning 100 years. Our entry into the FAST space in Europe reflects our dedication to making premium content accessible to audiences on new and important distribution channels," said Pete Wood, SVP, Digital Sales, Distribution, SPE.

The 8 free ad-supported streaming channels will be available in native language in the UK, France, Italy, Germany, Spain, Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland.
