The online service is being made available free of charge to all the platform’s customers who subscribe to the Filmbox channels pack. A monthly subscription to the latter gives Focus Sat customers access the premium movie channels FilmBox Premium, FilmBox Extra HD, FilmBox Plus, FilmBox Family, DocuBox HD and FightBox HD.
Filmbox Live offers viewers live streaming channels and the Filmbox VOD library.
Commenting on the development, Berk Uziyel, executive director for SPI International/Filmbox, said: “We are very excited to extend our existing Filmbox Pack on Focus Sat. This full viewing experience is all-inclusive, ad-free, premium TV and multiscreen entertainment. It allows subscribers to enjoy an extensive library of top quality and diverse programming content anywhere they want – with a single subscription.
“Thanks to the on-going collaboration with UPC DTH Filmbox Live is now one of the leading VOD platforms in the region featuring not only movies on-demand but also non-stop, unlimited access to several live-streaming channels.
Catalin Itu, VP Sales and Operations in UPC DTH, added: “After successfully launching Filmbox Live for UPC DTH customers in HU/CZ/SK in November 2016, we are pleased to make Filmbox Live also available to Focus Sat customers in Romania. This will further enhance our multi-screen services providing our customers with more movies and thematic content”.
