The three UK channels Reel Truth, Masters of Food and All Drama. The Reel Truth channel, which initially launched as a YouTube channel in 2017, and will host a variety of factual documentaries and series from around the world such as Crime Investigation Australia, Drug Lords, and Richard Hammond’s Engineering Connections.

Masters Of Food will showcase some Endemol Shine Group’s culinary programming including series from the Australia and Canada versions MasterChef, which is the most successful food format in the world. All Drama will be a destination for lovers of global drama, which taps into Endemol Shine Group’s  scripted library, delivering hugely popular, and critically acclaimed series such as Australian drama McLeod’s Daughters, British Crime series Wire in the Blood, and the Robert Carlyle fronted mystery drama Hamish McBeth.

Curated from Endemol Shine Group’s content library, Reel Truth, Masters of Food launched in October 2019 and in addition to the three UK channels, further channels will be launched in the US and across key European markets in the coming months.

Commenting on the deal, Kasia Jablonska, head of digital distribution and monestisation, Endemol Shine Group, said: “The curation of dynamic channels and delivering our content through OTT platforms is a core focus for our digital business. It’s the space which is about to explode and Endemol Shine is very much a part of the avant-garde. Our partnership with Samsung TV Plus is testament to the enduring appeal of our extensive library of shows, and by working with distribution partners such as Wurl, we are able to meet the demands of our rapidly developing audiences.”

“The future of TV viewing is through connected TVs, and industry titans like Endemol Shine Group are poised for continued success because they’re capitalising on this shift,” added Sean Doherty, CEO of Wurl. “We’re proud to support Endemol Shine Group as it continues its international channel expansion.”
