The Conan O’Brien TV channel, offered exclusively for free by Samsung TV Plus, is heading overseas.
The free, ad-supported streaming channel, which features O’Brien’s various celebrity interviews, skits, and other programming, launched in May in the U.S. to Samsung TV Plus users. Now you will be able to find the channel in Australia, Canada and New Zealand.
Conan O’Brien TV marks the latest example of how free, ad-supported streaming channels are shaking up the way we watch television. The rise of so-called FAST services like Pluto, Roku Channel, and Samsung TV Plus, resemble a cable lineup with their established channel and live feeds. But streaming’s flexibility means these platforms can create tailored, custom channels catering to niche interest, whether it’s one dedicated to Antique Roadshow or another focused on Fear Factor.
“Consumers today want premium entertainment content and that is our mission at Samsung TV Plus,” said Takashi Nakano, senior director of content and business development for Samsung TV Plus. “With the successful launch of the Conan O’Brien TV channel in the U.S., it was instrumental that we expand the reach of our quality entertainment.”
“We are thrilled to expand our exclusive partnership and provide the Conan O’Brien TV FAST channel to Samsung consumers in new markets,” said Jeff Ross, Executive Producer.
