MENLO PARK, Calif., June 26, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Future Today, the leader in ad-supported streaming, with flagship channels Fawesome, HappyKids and iFood.tv, and ranking in the top free channels across every major connected TV (CTV) and over-the-top (OTT) platform, including Roku, Amazon Fire TV and Apple TV, today announced its partnership with TCL, one of the world’s best-selling and leading consumer electronics companies, to bring its online streaming service to TCL TV and mobile users in North America.
Through this partnership, Future Today will launch five linear channels, including some of their most popular including HappyKids, ifood.tv and Fawesome.

Those factors, along with our award-winning product lineup, have made us one of the most popular electronics brands in the country,” said Mark Zhang, President, TCL North America. “TCL wouldn’t be a top 2 best-selling TV brand in the U.S. for four consecutive years if we didn’t listen to what our users value and consumers are hungry for more entertainment options, so we’re excited to expand our programming through this premium multi-channel streaming service.”
The integration of Future Today's AVOD platform into TCL's devices will provide an enhanced viewing experience for TCL users, offering them access to a broad range of premium content.
