SPI International has announced the launch of its new digital streaming service Dizi.
It offers a selection of Turkish series as well as the best series, telenovelas and soap operas from all over the world, depending on the demands of local markets.
Dizi is dubbed the Home of Good Stories and combines the lean-back and lean-forward viewing experiences with a linear channel offer and a large selection of on-demand content. Subscribers can access the service at www.dizi.com via web, mobile devices and smart TVs.
Commenting on the development, Berk Uziyel, CEO at SPI International, said: “The launch of the Dizi streaming service signifies the evolution of the Dizi brand into a fully integrated service that combines linear and on-demand content propositions to bring the best series from Turkey and beyond to all available screens around the globe.
“As a part of SPI’s macro strategy, we offer good movies spanning all genres under one roof via FilmBox’s Home of Good Movies. Now with our Dizi brand, we introduce the Home of Good Stories, where in addition to some of the most sought-after Turkish series, viewers can expect to see top-quality series with powerful storylines from around the world in the future”.
SPI International started its “Dizi journey” in 2019 with the launch of their Timeless Drama Channel (TDC), which later on adopted the name Timeless Dizi Channel. The channel, which offers over 600 hours of Turkish series from major producers, currently reaches over 8 million households in 50 countries.
The new service’s global debut will take place this week at NEM Dubrovnik.
In reference to the new product, SPI’s CMO Haymi Behar said: “The Dizi app builds on the success of the Timeless Dizi Channel and features around 400 hours of content from an inventory of critically acclaimed series such as Black Money Love, Kurt Seyit & Shura and Insider with new episodes added monthly. The app will feature English, Polish and Spanish localised interfaces and 13 language options and more will be added in time. The Dizi service will both enable viewers to tune into the linear channel and watch episodes on-demand through their preferred devices at their leisure”.
