FilmboxSPI International will launch eight thematic channels on Miabox, an OTT platform in Ivory Coast that is planning to offer its services across sub-Saharan Africa.

The bouquet consists of FilmBox Africa, FilmBox Art House, FightBox, Fast&FunBox, FashionBox, DocuBox, 360TuneBox and MadscreenBox.

Of these, four – FilmBox, FilmBox Art House, DocuBox and MadscreenBox – will be localised in the French language.

Commenting on the launch, Amit Karni, SPI International’s head of sales Africa, said: “As we expand our distribution footprint in Africa we are glad to bring FilmBox channels to viewers in Ivory Coast.
