Walter Presents is now available over the Internet on Comcast’s Xfinity X1, marking the first time the SVOD service is available from a pay-TV provider in the US.
The streaming subscription video on-demand (SVOD) service, which is dedicated to foreign-language drama TV series, offers more than 400 hours of content. Titles available now include Spin, Valkyrien, and Black Widow with more titles to be added across the year.
Walter Iuzzolino, co-founder and curator of Walter Presents says, “I’m delighted and excited to introduce award-winning titles from Walter Presents to more audiences across America who might not yet have had a chance to sample the drama delights the rest of the world has to offer. Now, Xfinity X1 customers will have access to blockbuster series they might never know existed – the ultimate passport to the very best TV dramas from around the world.”
Xfinity X1 customers can subscribe to and access the service by saying “Walter Presents” into their X1 voice remote or by finding it within the networks section of Xfinity on Demand. The service can be added to X1 customers’ service for $5.99/month.
Walter Presents is personally curated by Iuzzolino, a former UK television executive who devoted his time to finding the best foreign TV programs available and decided to bring his favourites into one collection.
In the UK Walter Presents launched on Channel 4’s on-demand service All 4 in January 2016. The service is now available in the US, Australia and Italy.
