SPI/FilmBox and Bulgarian telecom operator Net1 have struck a channel distribution deal that renders a total of 10 channels from SPI’s portfolio accessible to Net1 subscribers in Bulgaria. Among the channels is SPI’s premium movie channel FilmBox Extra, which features a curated selection of great movies acquired from major producers and distributors. The deal includes three other versatile movie channels – FilmBox, FilmBox Plus and FilmBox Arthouse – and a wide range of thematic channels dedicated to all sorts of content such as gaming, documentaries, sports, music, fashion and more.
“We are very excited to announce the start of our partnership with Net1,” said Murat Muratoğlu, Head of Distribution at SPI International. “Our ten versatile channels will provide Net1 subscribers with a vast amount of content to choose from depending on their interests.”
SPI’s premium FilmBox Extra channel offers a great selection of blockbuster hits and award-winning movies featuring world famous stars. FilmBox Plus and FilmBox present Hollywood movies, favorite evergreens, and popular series and broadcast hundreds of premiere titles every year.
“Our partnership with SPI added quality content tailored to the needs of different users,” said Peter Rizov, Net1 Executive. “These 10 first-class channels complemented the diversity of our TV list. The launch came at the very appropriate time, when our customers, spending more time at home, because of the pandemic, received a choice of more than 200 channels with a variety of topics. To enable all our existing and new subscribers to enjoy this experience, they received from us the entire package of 10 channels as a gift for a promotional period of time. I hope that our cooperation with SPI will continue in the direction of content enrichment, so that we can satisfy all tastes.”
