In the dynamic world of digital entertainment, "FAST Channels" is a term that’s been climbing the popularity ladder swiftly. They’ve intricately integrated into the media, yet some are still unfamiliar with what they entail. If you’re curious about what FAST Channels are, how they fit into the modern media mix, and how your business can jump on this, you’re in the right place. We’re here to unpack the essence of FAST Channels and guide you on starting your very own FAST channel.

What is a FAST channel?

FAST, short for Free Advertisement Supported Television, lives up to its name by thriving on advertising revenue. These channels almost feel like regular TV channels, but are completely free to view for anyone interested. You may have come across some already; Samsung TV Plus, The Roku Channel and Pluto TV offer some of the biggest FAST channels.

These easily accessible platforms, available on the internet and for example smart TVs worldwide, provide a diverse, global audience. And, together with Monboso we are now able to provide this for you!

The appeal of FAST channels

For viewers:
In an era where much digital content is tucked behind subscription fees, FAST Channels emerge as a breath of fresh air. Unlike Netflix or HBO, there are no strings attached—no subscription fees, just unrestricted access to a variety of content. It’s not entirely on-demand but offers an enticing, budget-friendly alternative for viewers.

For distributors:
If your archives are brimming with unused content, a FAST channel could be a game changer. It’s a chance to breathe new life into old media, engage audiences, and turn a neat profit. Monetization is a breeze—either pair up with an advertising platform or, with our assistance, set up your own to control and customize your ad content.

Start your FAST channel

If your business possesses a treasure trove of unused content, launching a FAST channel could be your golden opportunity. These low-maintenance platforms are user-friendly and efficient and can be targeted to a very niche audience.
