Jungo+, the company claims, is the first free ad-supported television (FAST) content app in the US to feature channels in Russian, Vietnamese, Tagalog, Urdu, Korean, and more.
The platform offers a diverse array of content from genres like esports, combat sports, LGBTQ+, dramas, horror, K-pop, dance, and music. Content partners include Korean broadcaster SBS, martial arts authority Black Belt Magazine, premium LGBTQ+ network Here TV, and dance collective World of Dance, along with independent movie studio ITN.
George Chung, CEO of Jungo TV, said: “We are proud to launch the first FAST channel offering in the USA with a complete selection of international language channels and passion-focused programming on the new Jungo Plus app, super-serving these underserved communities by delivering their favorite programs for free.”
Stuart Alson, President of ITN, said: “We are so pleased with our partnership with Jungo as their focus on the international markets in the ad-supported environment has allowed ITN to continue to grow across the global OTT space at a rapid pace.”
