FilmBox comes to Ziggo

SPI/FilmBox has announced the launch of its flagship channel FilmBox in the Netherlands with Ziggo.

The deal will provide all 3.1 million Ziggo customers with access to FilmBox and its curated selection of Hollywood films. 

FilmBox first launched in the Netherlands in mid-2021, and is now available on Canal Digitaal, DELTA, Caiway,, Kabelnoord, Plinq, SKP, Trined and Breedband Helmond.

Jeroen Bergman, managing director Film1 and FilmBox Netherlands, said: “Overwhelming feedback from Dutch TV viewers shows how frustrating it is to interrupt a film several times for a commercial break. It was high time to do something about it. FilmBox is already a huge success on all the platforms that have been broadcasting it since last year and has proven its appeal abroad for many years. The channel is a wonderful addition to our premium proposition Film1, and we are proud of the trust that Ziggo places in us.”

Raymond van der Vliet, director programming and content at VodafoneZiggo said: “We are very pleased to add FilmBox to our extensive tv offering. FilmBox fits perfectly in our aim to provide customers access to their favourite content with the best quality and viewing experience. The viewing of ad break-free programs and the high-quality films and series of FilmBox helps our customers get a great TV experience.”
