CraftsyTV Brings Creativity and Inspiration to Plex with Launch of New FAST Channel

CraftsyTV will debut on Plex as the first FAST channel devoted exclusively to crafting and creative hobbies.



PLYMOUTH, MINN. (November 18, 2022) — TN Marketing, Minnesota-based global video streaming company, announces its exciting debut in the FAST market with the launch of their new channel, CraftsyTV. The channel is now available on Plex, the free global streaming media platform, as the first ever to provide original programming for creative makers and craft enthusiasts, as well as millions of viewers worldwide.


Audiences will be able to tune in to educational, informative, and entertaining content including tutorials, step-by-step demonstrations, and how-to videos in an array of creative categories such as knitting, quilting, baking, sewing, painting, crocheting, and many more. In addition to original content, CraftsyTV will also air monthly live programming that, until now, has been available exclusively to the Craftsy community.


“The launch of CraftsyTV is an exciting strategic extension of the Craftsy brand to reach new audiences of hobbyists and enthusiasts around the world through this new platform,” says Cal Franklin, CEO of TN Marketing. “We’re taking what we've learned in the last twelve years about consumer engagement and video analytics and applying that intelligence to the linear programming of CraftsyTV to maximize viewership and attract top-tier advertisers.”


CraftsyTV originally debuted as a feature available uniquely on the Craftsy mobile app to provide users with a continuous stream of video content. The new FAST channel is now live on Plex with a 24/7 feed of how-to content covering more than 20 categories. TN Marketing plans to continue developing additional platform relationships and new channels with the goal of providing creative inspiration to audiences everywhere.
