The new deal will see SPI’s drama hub Dizi spread across the region to 10 countries.
Turkish broadcaster SPI/FilmBox has signed a new strategic deal with long-standing partner Digital Virgo to further extend the reach of its drama hub Dizi across the MENA region. This will see Dizi integrated into DV CONTENT, a catalogue of digital services designed for mobile operators. The deal will ensure Dizi is now available in Arabic on PlayVOD, Veedz and Unlimited Streaming in Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Kuwait, Morocco, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia and the United Arab Emirates.
Commenting on the deal, Georgina Twiss, Managing Director of Western Europe and Africa at SPI International, said: “We are pleased to expand our partnership with Digital Virgo to bring some of the most popular series to both existing and potential Turkish series enthusiasts in MENA.”
Last year, Digital Virgo brought SPI’s FilmBox Africa, FilmBox Arthouse, Gametoon and Fightbox, to multiple countries in Africa.
Speaking about their partnership, Achraf Ammour, Sales Director for the African Market at Digital Virgo, added: “Premium content is essential to the success of our offer. We are pleased to continue this partnership with Dizi, bringing another deal on the table with added-value Turkish series – locally adapted content that meets the needs of the viewers in MENA.”
