SPI Channels Roll Out in Democratic Republic of Congo


SPI International/FILMBOX has inked a multi-channel distribution agreement with Bleusat, a DTT operator in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo, marking its first deal in the country.

Bleusat is adding SPI’s entire eight-pack of African channels to its TV lineup. This includes FilmBox Africa (movies and TV series), FilmBox Art House (independent and classic films), DocuBox (documentaries on nature and human civilization), FashionBox (fashion trends and shopping), FightBox (combat sports, live MMA galas from Europe and the U.S.), Fast&FunBox (extreme sports programming), 360TuneBox (international music) and Gametoon (interactive eSports channel addressed to millennials).

“We are glad to have launched our channels with Bleusat, which is our first partner in the Democratic Republic of Congo,” said Amit Karni, SPI’s head of distribution for Africa. “SPI’s channels deliver diverse, top-quality entertainment to viewers across Africa, offering also localized language versions.”
