Digi adds five channels in SPI/FilmBox deal

SPI/FilmBox has announced a new linear and digital distribution deal with Hungarian pay TV operator Digi.

As of September 1, Digi customers will have access to SPI’s flagship movie channel FilmBox. In addition, subscribers who add the FilmBox Pak will also have access to FilmBox Premium, FilmBox Stars, FilmBox Family, and FilmBox Extra HD, the latter of which will replace Film Now on DIGI’s EPG. 

Subscribers who sign up to the premium package will also get an included FilmBox+ streaming service subscription, with which they can watch more than 10 linear channels and hundreds of hours of VOD content. 

Tamas Fulop, CEE Director of Operations at SPI International, said:“We are pleased to offer multiple viewing options to DIGI subscribers who enjoy watching top-quality movies. We want to make the entertainment experience as relaxing as possible for our audiences. In line with this vision, we have made our streaming service FilmBox+ available with DIGI and created an additional window of curated content that is easily accessible on internet-connected devices.”

Tamás Tábori, CEO of DIGI Hungary, said: “At DIGI, we have reached another milestone in the renewal of our programme offer, which is part of our ongoing strategic transformation. We are committed to bringing exciting, popular, and more entertaining content to our programming. Our customers will be able to view entertainment content either via the Internet or through our TV services.
