WARSAW: SPI International is launching six of its thematic channels on TNT SAT Africa.

The FilmBox brand channels set to roll out on the Mali-based DTH platform are FilmBox Africa, FilmBox Arthouse, Fast&FunBox, FashionBox, DocuBox and MadscreenBox. Of the six channels, FilmBox Africa, FilmBox Arthouse, DocuBox and MadscreenBox are being localized in the French language.

TNT SAT subscribers will have access to a range of programming, including BBC dramas such as The Musketeers and Doctor Who, as well as international films, extreme sports content and more.
