Subscribers of Film1 who have taken out their subscription directly with the film channel, rather than via a cable or IPTV operator, can now watch the channel’s offer directly on their Samsung smart tv. Until now, subscribers could only watch via tablet or smartphone and had to use Chromecast or Airplay to watch on a regular TV set.
In June 2018, Film1 made it possible to subscribe to the service outside TV providers such as Ziggo and KPN. A subscription via the service itself is often cheaper than a subscription via the TV provider. As a stad-alone service, Film1 costs €7.99 a month.
Sony Pictures Television acquired Film1 in July 2015.
