SPI International/FilmBox and Telekom Romania have inked a distribution deal to launch SPI’s flagship premium movie channel, FilmBox Premium, in Romania.

FilmBox Premium, which broadcasts more than 300 titles every year, is now available to subscribers across all of Telekom Romania’s distribution networks. FilmBox Premium is SPI/FilmBox’s flagship premium movie channel and broadcasts the newest blockbusters, award-winning world cinema movies and Hollywood features.

Channel highlights for the month include Ghost in the Shell, based on the comic of the same name and starring Academy Award nominee Scarlett Johansson; the sci-fi drama The Circle featuring Emma Watson and Academy Award winner Tom Hanks; and a slate of award-winning movies such as Star Trek Beyond, The Secret in Their Eyes and The Ghost Writer.

Telekom Romania already carries three channels from the SPI/FilmBox portfolio, including Turkey’s rapidly growing Timeless Drama Channel, which now reaches 5 million homes in 14 countries. The other channels offered through the operator’s platforms are DocuBox, which broadcasts a collection of award-winning documentaries about different cultures and the wonders of our world, and FightBox, which delivers live combat-sports events and mixed martial arts coverage from all over the world.

“FilmBox Premium is one of the top movie channels and we are happy that we have included it in our grid and we are now able to offer our customers movies that they will definitely enjoy. SPI International and Telekom Romania have built a solid partnership over the years, which helps us keep our customers satisfied and always looking forward to new, high-quality content,” said Andreas Elsner, chief commercial officer for the residential segment at Telekom Romania.
