The channel offers audiences 24/7 access to 10 seasons and over 160 episodes of the iconic Robot Wars, remastered in HD.

Robot Wars is the hugely popular robot combat competition series that sees amateur and professional roboteers clash with destructive remote-controlled robots in a steel arena patrolled by the legendary “House Robots” including Sir Killalot, Matilda and Dead Metal who keep the competitors in check.

Other titles on the channel will include spectacular Olympic-style robot competition Techno Games, automotive reality show Car Warriors and Rescue Robots, a children’s show featuring robots performing explorative missions.

Launched less than a year ago on Web, iOS and Android, Mech+ is dedicated to bringing viewers the best in science, engineering, and robotics content. This first launch on to FAST is a huge milestone and endorsement of the appeal of the channel.

Tom Burton, Senior Sales Manager, Mech+, said ‘We’re very excited to be working with Samsung TV Plus. Mech+ has been a massive hit since we launched last year and we’re continuing to build a highly engaged audience. Our expansion into FAST is a continued example of our ambition to meet the needs of our constantly evolving audience, providing the viewers with exactly what they want to watch around the clock and free of charge’.
