Global media company SPI International’s FilmBox continues to expand in the Netherlands as the channel launches with three more service providers following the roll-out on Canal Digitaal, Online.nl, DELTA and Caiway. FilmBox is now available through the basic packages of Plinq, Trined and KabelNoord at channels 19, 23 and 25, respectively.
“Just five months after the debut of FilmBox in the Netherlands, we have almost doubled the channel’s reach providing our curated selection of movies and series through seven Dutch TV platforms to about 600.000 households in the country,” commented Jeroen Bergman, General Manager, Film1 and FilmBox Netherlands. “Considering that the Netherlands is the first Western European market to have launched FilmBox, the exceptional success we have achieved with the channel here is very promising for SPI’s plans to bring FilmBox to other Western European markets.”
SPI International has been active in the Dutch pay-TV market with their thematic brands, and more recently with the premium movie services brand Film1, which operates four linear channels and on-demand services in the region available also via Plinq, Trined and KabelNoord.
