10Play launches new FAST channels
Entire channels devoted to MasterChef Australia, Prisoner, Survivor and Baywatch amongst first FAST channels on 10 Play.
Entire channels devoted to MasterChef Australia, Prisoner, Survivor and Baywatch are amongst new FAST channels now available on 10Play.
13 FAST channels have launched, offering a range of curated content in either single shows or genres.
There are channels specialising in Australian drama, action & adventure, retro cartoons and Christmas movies.
FAST channels are free to view, with advertising, with programming scheduled rather than on demand.
Daniel Monaghan, Senior Vice President, Content and Programming, Paramount Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) said: “Our new FAST channels deepen our offering to diehard fans with a world of content for the foodies, film buffs, reality fans and more.
“Devotees of MasterChef can gorge on back-to-back episodes from Australia and the US. And Survivor superfans can set up camp on a channel dedicated to all the series shot in South Africa, Australia and New Zealand.
“Or if you want drama and can’t get enough of the Hoff, then you can stream every episode of Baywatch on a dedicated channel for this 90’s fan favourite. There’ll also be an Aussie Drama channel with a mix of much-loved shows such as Puberty Blues, Rush, The Secret Life of Us, and more. But if you like 80’s Aussie classics, join Lizzie, Franky and Bea on our dedicated Prisoner channel. And we have our Christmas movie channel for the whole family to enjoy.
“There’s something for everyone to stream for free this summer with a wealth of choice in this first taste of our FAST channels and it’s only just the start as we intend to expand in 2023.”
Rod Prosser, Chief Sales Officer, Paramount ANZ said: “Our new FAST channels will deliver a win-win for audiences and advertisers alike, providing targeted opportunities for marketers to reach key audiences with distinct interests, tastes and even passions, who want to know more about products and services aligned to their interests.
“This is just another feather in the cap for 10 Play which has had its biggest year yet, growing 6% on 2021 plus registered users have grown 84% in two years to 6.2 million.
“We’re excited to be able connect advertisers with this engaged audience with clear and tangible consumer buying power across a vast array of lucrative markets and industries.”
Whether you’re on the naughty or nice list this year, there’s a FAST channel for you on our list this Christmas, available via the ‘live’ section on the 10 Play app and website.
But we don’t want you to Claus a scene this Christmas so make sure your 10 Play app is up to date with the latest version, so you can settle in, sit back and stream FAST channels this summer and binge on your favourite shows, anytime, anywhere.
