Samsung TV Plus gets Alchimie Channels



The company behind TVPlayer has joined up with Samsung to provide smart TV users with additional channels.

All newer Samsung Smart TVs have in-built access a guide called TV Plus, which provides access to additional linear channels delivered via the internet, on top of any traditional free-to-air channels available at a viewer's location.

Alchimie, which took over TVPlayer last year, is now distributing up to twelve of its own-brand channels via the Samsung platform in the UK, Spain, France and Italy.

The channels include

  • Big Name, featuring documentaries on renowned figures
  • MMA TV with its mixed martial programming; 
  • Humanity which shows award winning current affairs and geopolitical programming

... and a range of others covering Sports, Lifestyle, Special Interests and Music.

Nicolas d’Hueppe, CEO of Alchimie said:
Samsung’s TV Plus is a great partner, connected TV viewing is increasingly popular and Alchimie has the library of premium multi-language content, the portfolio of channels and the editorial expertise to ensure that Samsung’s TV Plus will be able to offer a range of channles to its growing European audiences – whatever their language or interests.
