DIGI, the Romanian telco, has launched the full SkyShowtime service, including premium linear channels SkyShowtime 1 and 2, to its digitalTV customers. This is SkyShowtime’s first B2B partnership in Central and Eastern Europe.

As part of a launch promotion, DIGI will make SkyShowtime available to all current digital TV subscribers in Romania at no additional charge for a limited time. Following the end of the promotional period, DIGI customers will be able to subscribe to SkyShowtime as part of new bundled offers that will be announced in the coming months.

DIGI TV customers will have access to all of SkyShowtime’s entertainment, including the latest blockbuster theatrical releases from Paramount and Universal, exclusive series—including all episodes of the global hit Yellowstone and its spin-offs 1883 and 1923—along with a growing roster of SkyShowtime Original Series.

SkyShowtime CEO, Monty Sarhan, commented: “From the start, SkyShowtime has been focused on building partnerships with leading television providers in our markets. And now, less than one year after launching in Romania, we are extremely proud to enter this new partnership with DIGI, expanding SkyShowtime’s reach and availability to over two million customers.”

“As the media landscape continues to evolve, our goal remains the same – to bring extensive and unrivalled content to our customers. For DIGI, providing a quality service means investment in cutting-edge technology, and key partnerships such as the one with SkyShowtime will help us deliver an enhanced entertainment experience. We are happy to announce the agreement to broadcast SkyShowtime channels in the Romanian market, by pursuing our mission to reach millions of homes with a variety of compelling programmes,” said Serghei Bulgac, CEO of DIGI Communications.
