Customers can subscribe to Dizi directly on their Comcast device for $4.99 month and access the service’s curated selection of Turkish drama series. These have English and Spanish localisation options – including Spanish and English dubbing and English subtitles for those who would like to watch the series in the original Turkish.
Commenting on the launch, Berkin Ecevit, sales and business development director at SPI International, said: “Our Dizi brand, which currently boasts a catalogue of some of the best Turkish drama series, has garnered immense popularity across the globe since its launch. We are delighted to partner with Comcast, one of the most prominent players in the market, to jumpstart Dizi’s U.S. expansion and to bring the magnetizing world of Turkish series to the homes of millions in the region”.

We are excited to continue to grow our international entertainment offerings with additional language choices, as well as making it easily accessible to our customers who can simply say ‘Show me Dizi’ into their voice remote”.
