Today it was announced that This Old House and Ask This Old House would be coming to Samsung TV Plus. This means Samsung Smart TV owners will now be able to watch This Old House and Ask This Old House for free 24/7. This follows the launch of the This Old House channel on XUMO earlier this year.
First aired back in 1979 with Bob Vila as the host of the show, This Old House is still on the air today. With over 1,000 Episodes This Old House is one of the longest-running shows currently still on TV. Originally launched as a 13-part series, the show became a huge success and is now streaming for free on both XUMO and Samsung Smart TV Plus.
“Recently, working together with Wurl on the challenges inherent in OTT monetization and distribution structures has been a true collaboration. They are one of a few platforms at the front of OTT democratization—developing and implementing tech in response to rapidly evolving audience and ad insertion requirements. We’re fortunate to work with a partner like Wurl that is willing to get on the phone, roll up their sleeves and lend expertise to get the job done right in this, often challenging, world of OTT,” said Gunnar Waldman, General Manager, Digital Video, This Old House Ventures. “Wurl has been especially helpful sorting ad-tech and monetization issues, offering their ops and dev teams to collaborate on podding, waterfall, and fill challenges—even with third-party partners. Of course, each content provider necessarily encounters unique challenges, which makes bespoke help all the more appreciated.”
On its website, This Old House is described as: “With 18 Emmy Awards and 71 nominations under its belt for This Old House, and six nominations for its companion series Ask This Old House, the No. 1 rated home improvement series still has audiences turning to America’s favorite team of experts — host Kevin O’Connor, master carpenter Norm Abram, general contractor Tom Silva, plumbing and heating expert Richard Trethewey, and landscape contractor Roger Cook — for a trusted and formidable source of expertise, along with wit, humor, and a great sense of camaraderie.”
