November 2, 2022
SPI/FilmBox and Canal+ Group have brought SPI’s gaming and eSports channel Gametoon to Ethiopia, available on channel 71 in the DESTA package. SPI had already launched FilmBox Africa and the new additions to the FilmBox group, FilmBox Action and FilmBox Family with the operator, earlier in the year.
Gametoon is created by true gaming and eSports enthusiasts and features highlights of popular games, entertainment content from gaming youtubers, video game tournaments with million-dollar prize pools and much more. Alexandre Gruner, SVP Channels Acquisitions and Partnerships for Canal+ International, said: “We are very pleased to pursue the partnership with our new family member SPI with the launch of the FilmBox movies portfolio as well as Gametoon. Those channels will appeal to our Ethiopian viewers and strengthen our offer.” FilmBox Africa and FilmBox Family are available in the Desta package on channel 54 and 55, respectively, while FilmBox Action is accessible in the Feshta package on channel 62 via ‘Canal+ Ethiopia’, a dedicated offer distributed in Ethiopia. SPI’s MMA sports channel FightBox is also available in the Desta package.
