SPI/FilmBox, Discover Digital Sub Saharan Africa channel boost

August 9, 2019

Global media company SPI/FilmBox and converged online television service Discover Digital have expanded their existing partnership in Sub Saharan Africa by adding another seven channels from SPI’s channel portfolio to the DEOD (Digital Entertainment On Demand) platform.

The newly-expanded partnership with DEOD will include FilmBox Africa, FilmBox Arthouse, Fast&FunBox HD, DocuBox HD, 360 TuneBox, Gametoon HD and FashionBox HD.

“Building on the great response to FightBox HD amongst the DEOD subscribers who enjoy a live event every week, and together with our long term partner Discover Digital, I am pleased to announce that we have expanded our agreement to bring seven more channels to their platform,” commented Georgina Twiss, MD Western Europe & Africa at SPI International. “Now DEOD subscribers have access to a richer variety of great HD quality channels from SPI/FilmBox.”

“We are very excited to add such a broad mix of quality content and extend our distribution partnership with SPI International,” said Stephen Watson, Director of Discover Digital International. “Not only do the additional FilmBox channels continue to provide our audiences with an excellent selection of broad entertainment, but they also continue to grow and diversify our formidable movie offering by introducing documentaries and arthouse titles. This deal provides additional value for our broadcast and telco operator partners, who offer the DEOD service to their customers in multiple countries on the continent.”
