Czech Operator Digi TV & FilmBox Extend Pact


SPI/FilmBox International and the Czech operator Digi TV have extended their long-term cooperation agreement to include new channels.

New channels will be available via classic DTH satellite broadcasting and also on the Digi2Go Internet television. The new additions are FilmBox Extra HD, FilmBox Family, DocuBox and FightBox channels. Together with the already available channels FilmBox, FilmBox Plus and FilmBox Premium HD, Digi TV will now offer seven SPI/FilmBox channels.

This fall, FilmBox channels will introduce Knightfall and Hard Sun, among others.

Tamas Fulop, CE regional director of operation for SPI International, said: “Our partnership with Digi TV has proven successful, so after a common agreement, we decided to continue with it. We are delighted to be able to provide interesting channels and programming offered to our viewers on this platform even in the future. After our success with 3 channels now we are adding four more channels. SPI is becoming a one-stop shop strategic partner for operators to deliver more value to subscribers.”

Vladimír Rusnák, executive director of Digi TV, said: “By adding more channels from the FilmBox family, we will please the broad community of our users, whether they want the latest TV series, film classics or exciting documentaries. Now our viewers have a wider array of channels of different genres that offer engaging content, while those seeking top image quality get more HD resolution channels.”
