Filmzie Streaming Service Launches on Samsung TV Plus

New Streaming Platform FILMZIE Launches in the UK on Samsung TV

London, UK(29 Oct 2020)

FILMZIE, the free movie streaming and social platform, today announces it is now available as a channel on Samsung TV Plus in the UK as it continues its mission to connect with the nation’s film lovers.

The launch sees FILMZIE run as a linear channel on Samsung TV Plus, meaning it will be seamlessly integrated to its viewers’ connected TVs – there are no programmes or additional applications to download.

Part of this linear experience is FILMZIE’s Advertising-based Video on Demand (AVoD) offering for users, meaning that all of the films in the FILMZIE catalogue are just a click away. As an AVoD platform, the service is advertising supported, rather than requiring payment of any additional subscription or membership.

FILMZIE is a movie streaming and social platform with over 1,000 titles in its catalogue. It is designed for film fans eager to discover new movies and offers expertly curated films from a broad collection of both iconic and new works. Serving as more than just a film library, FILMZIE allows its viewers to build communities for discovering, discussing, and reviewing movies.

For film aficionados and the casual viewer alike, FILMZIE boasts a growing list of titles ranging from timeless classics to new releases from both major studios and indie producers. These titles include Taika Waititi’s cult favourite What We Do in The Shadows, legendary Korean director Park Chan Wook’s Lady Vengeance and Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, and Deception, which features the Oscar-winning Geoffrey Rush.

Matej Boda, CEO of FILMZIE says: “Movies are there to be watched, not hidden away behind paywalls by big corporations to line their own pockets. The film industry needs to support all the different, clever, entertaining, and passionately made movies out there. Films have the power to change opinions; to bewilder us, astonish us and bring joy to our lives, and we are democratizing films. We’re giving people access to great dramas, documentaries, comedies, art-house, and all the wonderful other genres between or that defy definition. We know that people understand that films cost money and producers, especially the small indies, deserve to be paid. Our AVoD model means viewers see fewer, targeted ads – in the knowledge that in return they get access to a world of fantastic films. A price worth paying.”

FILMZIE is also available as an iOS and Android app via the Samsung Galaxy Store and Google Play, or through web browsers, the service is structured around carefully curated themes, to help optimise discoverability and introduce ‘new’ titles to curious audiences.

FILMZIE’s UK service is the first in what is planned as a multi-market international roll-out. Additional territories and platforms are expected to follow later in 2020 and next year with localised catalogues.


Filmzie is a high-quality worldwide platform for streaming free movies & TV series available for Android, Android TV, iOS, Amazon Fire TV and a broad range of Smart TV app stores. Simply by watching movies on Filmzie, viewers are supporting indie filmmakers and can interact with one another via built-in social features, including a native movie rating and review system which gives filmmakers direct feedback. Filmzie has a huge variety of content, ranging from action, comedy, drama, horror and thriller movies, as well as top festival winners, independent films, exceptional short movies and much more. There are so many great films out there from extremely talented filmmakers that just don’t get seen by the general public. Filmzie is here to change that by providing free movie streaming for true movie lovers.
