SPI International’s FilmBox has launched on three more service providers in the Netherlands following its debut on Canal Digitaal, Online.nl, DELTA and Caiway.
It is now available through the basic packages of Plinq, Trined and KabelNoord at channels 19, 23 and 25, respectively.
Commenting on the development, Jeroen Bergman, General Manager, Film1 and FilmBox Netherlands., said: “Just five months after the debut of FilmBox in the Netherlands, we have almost doubled the channel’s reach providing our curated selection of movies and series through seven Dutch TV platforms to about 600.000 households in the country.
“Considering that the Netherlands is the first Western European market to have launched FilmBox, the exceptional success we have achieved with the channel here is very promising for SPI’s plans to bring FilmBox to other Western European markets”.
SPI International has been active in the Dutch pay-TV market with its thematic brands, and more recently with the premium movie services brand Film1, which operates four linear channels and on-demand services in the region available also via Plinq, Trined and KabelNoord.
