SPI International / FilmBox and OVY Network have recently agreed to extend their channel distribution agreement onto multiple territories across Africa.

According to the new agreement eight channels from the SPI International/FilmBox portfolio initially set for Botswana will be also available through OVYtv in Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Namibia, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.

“We are excited to expand our footprint in Africa,” Berk Uziyel, Executive Director for Filmbox International Ltd. commented on the new deal.

“So far our channels have been performing very well throughout the region. This is why our partner OVY Network decided to carry eight of them on its OVYtv platform in multiple territories,” Uziyel added.

The Filmbox channel line-up consists of two movie channels – FilmBox Africa and FilmBox Arthouse, FightBox – a martial arts channel, Fast’nFunBox – an extreme sports channel, DocuBox – a documentary channel, FashionBox – world’s first native HD channel devoted to fashion, 360TuneBox – a music channel and MadscreenBox – a live, interactive game channel with family-oriented entertainment.
