FAST channels have recently taken the streaming world by storm. So, what are they exactly? The acronym stands for Free Ad-Supported Television. And, in essence, they are channels that continuously stream content with advertisements. The main difference here is that the content is completely free.
Many of the channels are not typical cable channels. Instead, they are more specialised channels. Sling Freestream, for example, includes a few news channels such as ABC News Live and CBS News. These are 24-hour live news channels that are also ad-supported and available for free on all platforms. AMC Thrillers and The Walking Dead Universe are also available.
