As a result, Dizi content will be offered both via linear channel and SVOD via the operator’s distribution networks in the basic package. Timeless Dizi Channel will be available to Meo subscribers with Portuguese subtitles and the viewers will be able to access Dizi series on-demand through Meo’s SVOD offer Meo Filmes e Séries.
Commenting on the development, Georgina Twiss, MD Western Europe and Africa at SPI International, said: “We are delighted to bring the mesmerising world of Dizi to more Western European audiences through this agreement with our long-standing partners Meo in Portugal.
“Our Dizi brand is extremely well received across the globe and we are looking forward to witnessing Dizi’s Portuguese fan base grow as they tune into these engaging series”.
Tiago Silva Lopes, consumer products and services director at Altice Portugal, added: “The launch of Dizi Channel differentiates and diversifies Meo’s offer, allowing access, on the one hand, to content aimed at international fiction lovers and, on the other hand, to specific styles, such as series”.
Meo already carries the gaming and esports channel Gametoon from SPI/FilmBox’s portfolio.
