Dedicated kids’ channel will provide free 24-hour programming and feature popular series such as ‘Sissi the Young Empress’ and ‘Invention Story.’
Mondo TV has announced the launch of its own dedicated kids’ channel on Samsung TV Plus, Samsung’s free ad-supported Smart TV video service, in Italy. The channel, Mondo TV Kids, will be available from October 28, providing Italian children with 24-hour a day programming in Italian, with a daily segment in English to support and encourage kids who are learning English.
Users will be able to access many of the shows that make up Mondo’s extensive TV library, along with such recent hits as Season 1 of Sissi the Young Empress and Invention Story. This is the first thematic digital channel organized directly by Mondo TV and marks the beginning of a new project for the future business.
Samsung TV Plus offers more than 250 channels across seven countries in Europe giving viewers access to news, sports, entertainment, and more. It is free to Samsung Smart TV users with post-2016 models in the UK, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Spain, France, and Italy. The service does not require any downloads, credit cards, subscriptions, or additional devices – just an appropriate Samsung Smart TV and an internet connection.
“Mondo TV is delighted to be part of the Samsung TV Plus service – a service that makes access to top shows easier and quicker,” commented Mondo TV president and CEO, Matteo Corradi. “Samsung TV Plus is a marvelous showcase for our impressive library of TV and film shows, and a great way for fans of our many recent hits to access them for free.”
“Mondo TV Kids offers a diverse selection of excellent kids programming from a leading name in children’s entertainment – and it’s soon to be available on our popular and easy-to-access Samsung TV Plus service in Italy,” added Samsung Electronics European head of business development – Smart TV, Richard Jakeman. “We are extremely excited that TV Plus is the first service to carry Mondo TV Kids channel.”
