German streaming service Joyn is now offering 16 FAST Channels covering selected genres, films and series.
“‘FAST’ is the buzzword of the year in the media industry. With our new themed streams, we are now taking the first step for Joyn towards ‘Free Ad-Supported Streaming TV’ and paving the way for new ad-financed on-demand services on Joyn,” said Tassilo Raesig, CEO of the ProSiebenSat.1 subsidiary.
The new themed streams, labelled “24/7”, draw on content that is available on demand and are played in a playlist. Joyn users can start the programmes from the beginning when zapping through the EPG or jump to one of the next formats in the selection.
The channels are dedicated, for example, to shows from German TV presenters Joko & Klaas, action films from the Moviedome on-demand library, workout with series from Cyberobics, X-Factor with episodes of all seasons of the US mystery series, comedy from the Netzkino library, Being Human with episodes of all four seasons of the US sci-fi series, K11 with episodes of all seasons of German crime series K11 – Kommissare im Einsatz, True Crime with episodes from the US series Unsolved Mysteries, Murder in Amish Country, The Night Caller and In the Cold Dark Night as well as kids content from the RiC library.
The offer is to be expanded in the coming weeks. The FAST Channels can be accessed directly at https://24-7.joyn.de.
