About Walter Presents

Walter Presents launched January 2016 in the U.K. as a video-on-demand service, founded by Jason Thorp, Walter Iuzzolino and Jo McGrath. Dedicated to showcasing award winning foreign language drama, the service is named after its curator, Walter Iuzzolino, a passionate drama fan.  In March 2017, Walter Presents launched as an SVOD platform in the U.S., with the New York Times hailing it as a “chic TV boutique with a foreign accent.” In November 2017, Walter Presents launched in Australia through pay-TV service Foxtel and in Italy September 2018, its first roll-out in mainland Europe, on Discovery’s Nove, Giallo and Dplay channels. In October 2018 Walter Presents partnered with PBS Distribution in the US, to make premium foreign language drama available on PBS Masterpiece on the Amazon Prime Video channel. Additionally, select top-tier titles chosen by PBS are also broadcast on PBS stations and streaming on PBS Passport, a digital member benefit available through local stations. In February 2019 Walter Presents increased its US distribution further launching on Comcast Xfinity X1 and later in June Walter Presents launched on the Roku Channel.  In 2019 Walter Presents teamed up with Medialaan to make the service available to Flemish audiences on their newly launched digital channel VTM GO, and also joined forces with S4C to make its dramas available in Welsh. This year we partnered with TVNZ with over 250 hours of content on their VOD service and also launched Walter Presents in Russia, exclusively on Start, Russia’s fastest growing SVOD platform, providing 400 hours of hit international drama.
