The additional channels are FilmBox Africa, FilmBox Arthouse, Fast&FunBox HD, DocuBox HD, 360 TuneBox, Gametoon HD and FashionBox HD. They are part of SPI’s channel portfolio on the digital entertainment on demand (DEOD) platform.

The channels will offer subscribers content including Hollywood movies, series, documentaries, fashion trends, lifestyle programmes, music, sport and live events, such as KOK World Series, RXF MMA Championship and MFC Makowski Fighting Championship,.

“Building on the great response to FightBox HD amongst the DEOD subscribers who enjoy a live event every week, and together with our long-term partner Discover Digital, I am pleased to announce we have expanded our agreement to bring seven more channels to their platform. Now DEOD subscribers have access to a richer variety of great HD-quality channels from SPI/FilmBox,” said Georgina Twiss, MD of Western Europe and Africa at SPI International.

Stephen Watson, director of Discover Digital International, said: “We are very excited to add such a broad mix of quality content and extend our distribution partnership with SPI International.

“Not only do the additional FilmBox channels continue to provide our audiences with an excellent selection of broad entertainment, but they also continue to grow and diversify our formidable movie offering by introducing documentaries and arthouse titles. This deal provides additional value for our broadcast and telco operator partners, who offer the DEOD service to their customers in multiple countries on the continent.”
