SPI Brings Two More FilmBox Channels into the Middle East


SPI International/FilmBox and Emirates-based Etisalat have struck a carriage agreement to introduce the two new specialized FilmBox channels to subscribers in the Middle East.

FilmBox Action offers action entertainment with a slate of thrillers, Westerns, horror, sci-fi and disaster films. FilmBox Family presents popular series, family movies, cartoons and educational programming geared toward general audiences, providing entertainment for the whole family.

These two channels join other SPI offerings on Etisalat: the Turkish series hub Dizi is available in the basic package, and Gametoon is in the sports package.

“We are excited to expand on our agreement with our long-standing partner Etisalat with the launch of two sought-after FilmBox channels in the region,” commented Murat Muratoglu, head of distribution at SPI International. “Now, subscribers will be able to enjoy a large spectrum of content from SPI that covers popular Turkish series, esports content, family-oriented movies and Hollywood’s best action features.”
