8/1/2023

Samsung users around the globe can now access premium soccer content for free on Samsung TV Plus

The tech giant has expanded its sports entertainment offering with more content during the biggest women’s football tournament

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. has announced that FIFA+ is the latest global addition to the list of 2,000 channels on Samsung TV Plus[1], its free ad-supported streaming TV (FAST) service. This new addition forms part of the continued growth of Samsung’s sports offerings available to its users.

The free FIFA+ channel on Samsung TV Plus[2] will feature FIFA+’s rich collection of Originals, the Archive, and highlights from the Men’s and Women’s game. Additionally, users in Brazil and Italy can access full live matches[3] of the FIFA Women’s World Cup on Samsung TV Plus.

The tech tie-up builds upon the existing sports content available on Samsung TVs, which includes the DAZN Tizen app, DAZN FAST+ (Austria and Germany), the DAZN Women’s Football Channel (Australia and New Zealand), the Tennis Channel (Austria, Germany, India, the Netherlands, Switzerland, the U.K., and the U.S.), DraftKings Network (the U.S.), CBS Sports HQ (the U.S.), and other channels on Samsung TV Plus.

Samsung TV Plus is Samsung’s free, go-to source for entertainment and sports that delivers thousands of TV shows, movies and sporting events to millions of Samsung Smart TVs, Galaxy devices, and in several markets select Family Hub refrigerators and the web.

“Samsung is delighted to be adding the FIFA+ channel to Samsung TV Plus, thereby expanding the roster of sports content available on Samsung TVs and Galaxy devices,” commented Richard Jakeman, Head of Business Development at Samsung Electronics Europe. “Launching globally with a rich lineup of curated FIFA+ content will add incredible value to our customers, and with the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023™ continuing, they’ll also be able to experience content that marks the next exciting chapter in the Women’s game.”

The announcement comes as the highly anticipated Women’s World Cup 2023™ in Australia and New Zealand continues apace.

FIFA+ will offer customers access to thousands of hours of content about football’s greatest stories. The channel’s Originals are full-length documentaries, docuseries and shorts, delivering global storytelling around the Men’s and Women’s game. They include “The Happiest Man in the World” (the genius, maverick, mentor and rebel that is Ronaldinho), “Croatia: Defining a Nation” (the story of how a group of footballers defined a new nation through football), and “Bravas de Juárez” (the inspiring sacrifices behind the dream of a Latin American women’s football team), among countless others — in both long- and short-form.

The Archive, meanwhile, will become home to every FIFA World Cup and FIFA Women’s World Cup match ever recorded on camera. In addition to full match replays, editorial style programming will also be available, including tournament match highlights, goal packages, team-focused programming and dedicated player profiles.

“Collaborations like this are helping us transform the face of FAST,” said Alex Hole, VP & GM of Samsung Electronics Europe. “With the inclusion of live content from major sporting events, our TVs are turning into hubs of premium sports content, redefining our understanding of what FAST can offer.”
