Channel operator SPI International is due to launch a new independent film network called FilmBox Arthouse in Europe and the US this summer.
The channel will be available for DTH platforms, cable, IPTV, mobile, and connected TVs with related video-on-demand rights, said SPI. The firm is also working on a multi-screen app to make the channel available on web-connected devices.
The launch will mark SPI’s sixth international channel launch after FightBox HD, FashionBox HD, DocuBox HD, Erox HD and Eroxxx HD. The FilmBox Arthouse network will feature auteur and independent films from around the world.
SPI International has been supplying theatrical films and TV programmes to the international market for more than 20 years and currently operates 34 TV channels across four continents.
