Molotov Adds Fast&FunBox, FightBox to Lineup


French OTT service Molotov, owned by Fubo, has added SPI International’s Fast&FunBox and FightBox to its offering.

Fast&FunBox features programming and competitions across adrenaline-fueled sports, including car racing, motocross, snowboarding and skateboarding. FightBox is dedicated to combat sports, offering a selection of exclusive content, live events and weekly programming across mixed martial arts, boxing, wrestling, karate, kickboxing and taekwondo, among others.

The two channels are available via Molotov’s extended basic package. They join SPI International’s Gametoon in Molotov’s offering. Gametoon is part of the service’s Gamer Zone package.

“We’re excited to further strengthen our relationship with Molotov by introducing Fast&FunBox and FightBox to French audiences,” said Georgina Twiss, managing director of Western Europe and Africa at SPI International. “These offerings, alongside Gametoon, cater to MMA, extreme sports and esports enthusiasts, in harmony with Fubo’s mission to deliver dynamic sports entertainment to audiences worldwide. With SPI International’s channels on Molotov, viewers can enjoy a diverse range of sports content including appointment to view live fights and breathtaking adrenaline sports.”

“Our parent company, Fubo, has built a successful business in multiple countries following the sports entertainment model, and we plan to expand Molotov’s offering in the same way,” said Grégory Samak, managing director at Molotov. “As a player in MMA, extreme sports and esports—all growing sports in France—SPI international is an obvious partner for Molotov as we go deeper into sport.”
