SPI’s FilmBox Channels Score Distribution in Ivory Coast


WARSAW: SPI International is launching eight of its thematic FilmBox channels on Miabox, an OTT platform in Ivory Coast.

Miabox plans to offer its services across Sub-Saharan Africa. The platform will carry FilmBox Africa, FilmBox Arthouse, FightBox, Fast&FunBox, FashionBox, DocuBox, 360TuneBox and MadscreenBox. Of the eight channels being offered by Miabox, four—FilmBox, FilmBox Arthouse, DocuBox and MadscreenBox—are being localized in French.

Through these channels, Miabox users will have access to BBC dramas such as Doctor Who, films featured at international festivals, documentary titles, combat and adrenaline-filled sports, fashion and music-themed programming and more. MadscreenBox, for example, is an interactive channel that brings viewers family-oriented games and entertainment.

“As we expand our distribution footprint in Africa we are glad to bring FilmBox channels to viewers in Ivory Coast,” said Amit Karni, SPI International’s head of sales for Africa. “With the four channels localized in French we are looking forward to attracting more French-speaking viewers throughout Sub-Saharan Africa.”
