SPI International in deal with Ooredoo

Channel provider SPI International has struck a new deal with Qatar-based service provider Ooredoo to secure the addition of its FilmBox Live app to Ooredoo’s Oman TV set-top service.

Ooredoo Oman TV subscribers will now be able to watch FilmBox Live programmes on-demand at any time on their TV screens.

Ooredoo TV provides customers with the ability to sign up for streaming services from around the world, including, for the first time, FilmBox.

“We are happy to ink this deal with Ooredoo TV, an important digital player in the region. This is the beginning of a long term partnership. This partnership allows for our content to reach new audiences in the region.’’ said Murat Muratoğlu, head of distribution for ex-Yugoslavia, the Baltics, Turkey, Greece, Bulgaria, APAC, CIS and MENA at SPI International.

Feras bin Abdullah Al Shaikh, director of consumer sales at Ooredoo said: “We want our customers to enjoy the internet and all of its possibilities. With Ooredoo TV, users can experience video on demand at the click of a button. Today, customers are increasingly moving away from traditional TV watching habits of following a set schedule for catching their favorite series and soaps, to the flexibility of online and on-demand streaming; and that is exactly what Ooredoo TV offers.”
