UKTV launches four new Free Ad-supported Streaming TV (FAST) channels.

UKTV has launched four Free Ad-supported Streaming TV (FAST) channels via select platforms.

The four stations run 24 hours a day and complement the broadcaster's existing linear portfolio, which includes W, Dave, GOLD, Drama and Yesterday.

'UKTV Play Uncovered' offers a lineup of history and engineering programmes, while 'UKTV Play Full Throttle' features cars, planes and trains.

'UKTV Play Laughs' broadcasts non-stop comedy, and the final channel, 'UKTV Play Heroes', is dedicated to shows about paramedics, doctors, nurses and the police.

Jonathan Newman, general manager of commercial at UKTV, said: "FAST is a fantastic opportunity to reach new audiences with our rich content catalogue and showcase a wide array of genres across the four new channels.

"Thanks to the hard work of a group of passionate experts from across UKTV, our new FAST channels will be a valuable complement to the existing channel network and will help supercharge the UKTV Play streaming service by further extending its reach."

The channels can be accessed via Amazon Freevee, Pluto TV and Samsung TV Plus.
