SPI’s FilmBox Expands Availability in the Netherlands


SPI International’s FilmBox has launched on an additional three service providers in the Netherlands, following its Dutch debut five months ago.

FilmBox is now available through the basic packages of Plinq, Trined and KabelNoord. Customers of those providers can access films such as Aleksandr Chernyaev’s action-thriller Wake Up, Norwegian thriller An Affair and David Fincher’s Academy Award-winning drama The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

The FilmBox channel is also available in the Netherlands via Canal Digitaal, Online.nl, DELTA and Caiway.

“Just five months after the debut of FilmBox in the Netherlands, we have almost doubled the channel’s reach, providing our curated selection of movies and series through seven Dutch TV platforms to about 600,000 households in the country,” said Jeroen Bergman, general manager of Film1 and FilmBox Netherlands. “Considering that the Netherlands is the first Western European market to have launched FilmBox, the exceptional success we have achieved with the channel here is very promising for SPI’s plans to bring FilmBox to other Western European markets.”
