SPI International & Allente Ink Deal


SPI International, a CANAL+ company, has partnered with Allente to bring the Dizi channel and Dizi on-demand content to the Nordic region.

The launch begins in Sweden. Plans for rollouts in Norway, Denmark and Finland have been scheduled for a later date.

This strategic partnership marks a significant expansion for SPI International, as its Turkish dramas will reach all-new territories.

Georgina Twiss, managing director for Western Europe and Africa at SPI International, said: “We are very happy to introduce the Dizi Channel in Sweden, especially when it is together with the region’s industry leaders, Allente. This collaboration highlights their innovative and market-leading approach to content with strong support for the power of Turkish dramas. The region is one of the most sophisticated content markets in the world, and this is a significant first step in bringing this captivating genre to Nordic television viewers.”

Michael Bärlin, chief content officer at Allente, added: “We are thrilled to launch the newest addition to the Allente family: Dizi. Our partnership with Dizi adds a treasure trove of captivating Turkish series, renowned for their compelling narratives. By integrating Dizi into our offerings, we’re not just expanding our content library; we’re enriching the cultural tapestry we offer to our subscribers and will address an under-served segment in the market. This collaboration underscores our commitment to delivering diverse, high-quality entertainment that resonates with audiences worldwide.”
