The SPI International affiliate Kino Polska TV is set to launch the Turkish drama channel Dizi in Poland.
Starting in April 2021, Dizi will be included in the offers of Vectra and Multimedia Polska networks in the Gold Package and the MaxBox Package, respectively. The brand-new Polish feed of Dizi, tailored to the preferences of the Polish viewers, will initially include Black Money Love, 20 Minutes, Ezel, Karadayi, Kurt Seyit & Shura, Red Scarf and Moms and Mothers. The channel will broadcast Turkish series 24 hours a day, seven days a week in HD with Polish voiceovers.
Berk Uziyel, CEO at SPI International, said: “We are excited to launch Dizi in Poland, which will delight quality drama fans in the country with its specially-curated programming that features some of Turkey’s most popular and critically acclaimed productions.”
Bogusław Kisielewski, president of Kino Polska TV, said: “Dizi is the essence of everything that is best in Turkish series and our response to the phenomenon of production from the Bosphorus in Poland. Dizi will broadcast only carefully selected titles that are very popular among viewers around the world and are taking new markets by storm. Today, Turkey is a series empire, and we—due to the pedigree of our majority shareholder SPI International—have access to the best Turkish content. We intend to use this to build the market position of Dizi in Poland.”
Małgorzata Wojtaszko, head of content at the Vectra Group, said: “We carefully analyze the preferences of our customers in order to best match the offer to their needs and preferences. We know how popular Turkish series are in Poland. The phenomenon of these productions could not escape our attention. We are glad that on April 1, we will be the first to offer our clients access to Dizi and its rich collection of Turkish hits.”
Jacek Koskowski, general director of sales and distribution in Poland at Kino Polska TV, said: “Vectra and Multimedia Polska is the first step in building the Dizi distribution in Poland. We also talk to other operators, because we want the channel to reach as many households in the country as possible. Dizi is a unique product, the only one entirely filled with Turkish premium content, so we are convinced that it will be very popular with Polish viewers.”
