It’s heeere. It is Walter Presents, the brand new subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) platform for non-English-language world drama in the US, and it is streaming Euro TV and other international TV titles right now.
True to the announcement a month and a half ago about Walter Presents expanding from the UK to the US in March 2017, the SVOD service went live in the States today.
Also exact is the number of titles announced as being available for streaming on this Walter Presents launch day: 34.
All of the programs are shown in their original language with English subtitles, and all are exclusive to Walter Presents. Titles include some of the most highly-anticipated Euro TV premieres on this side of the Atlantic, such as Nordic noir drama Valkyrien (which isn’t available yet on WP UK) and French political thriller Spin (Les Hommes de l’Ombre).
Fans of Euro TV crime dramas have plenty to choose from, including Black Widow (Penoza, Dutch), Dead Beautiful (Les Dames, French), and two series from the German Tatort franchise – Inspector Falke and Nick’s Law.
A few other series include crime thriller Night & Day (Nit i Dia, Catalan), drama Home Guards (Veszettek, Hungarian), comedy/fantasy drama The Invisibles (Neviditelní, Czech), and dramedy Scratch My Back (Voor Wat Hoort Wat, Flemish).
Here’s what you need to know to get in on the Euro TV+ goods:
