January 19, 2018
Global media company SPI International/FilmBox has launched ten international TV channels on WhereverTV in the US, which delivers OTT subscription television services to a variety of devices including smartphones, tablets, PCs, streaming media players, computers and connected TVs.
Based on the distribution deal signed by SPI and WhereverTV Broadcasting Corp., the OTT provider is adding all channels from SPI’s worldwide TV portfolio including several featuring multiple language options.
“We are excited to make our channels available on WhereverTV and to team up with this innovative streaming platform to provide diverse types of programming to both ethnic and general audiences,” said Stacey Sobel, executive VP of SPI International.
“WhereverTV is transitioning from a development to operational company and in doing so we have refined our 2018 business model,” said Edward D. Ciofani, CEO. “Our business model calls for content acquisition from around the world, exclusive content development, Major Marketing Alliances, similar to the announced Google Chromecast for Latin America and major marketing initiatives including social media marketing. We are pleased to kick off the New Year with our first new content deal with SPI International/FilmBox. “There are a lot of content providers (channel providers) around the world that offer a uniquely diversified perspective of cultures, travel and lifestyle content. SPI International/FilmBox is one of those unique companies that I believe our customers, if they haven’t already, will gravitate too.”
