In recognition of Hispanic Heritage Month, Samsung Oct. 7 announced the launch of 10 free Spanish-language channels on its Samsung TV Plus platform. The ad-supported platform offers free access to more than 145 content channels.
The Spanish-language channels include content ranging from telenovelas, reality shows, comedies, news, adventure shows to modern dramas. The content from Sony Canal, Estrella TV, Pluto TV, Tastmade and Spike, among others, is also available on the recently launched Samsung TV Plus mobile app for download on select Galaxy smartphones.
“Samsung includes a broad cross-section of cultural perspectives in our entertainment and content, so it is only fitting that we [add] channels to our extensive collection of Samsung TV Plus programing,” Salek Brodsky, VP of strategic partnerships & business development for Samsung Electronics, said in a statement.
