SPI International, announced confimed the launch of a new version of FilmBox channel in Hungary, fully tailored for the Hungarian market, featuring an enhanced content selection starting January 2024. The initiative will be further strengthened through a partnership with RTL Saleshouse, facilitating advertising sales and viewership measurement.  "We’re dedicated to enhancing FilmBox’s value proposition across key regions like Hungary, through individual feeds featuring enriched content selections. Our next goal was to find a partner who embodies the spirit of FilmBox and can collaborate effectively within SPI’s corporate structure. RTL Saleshouse fulfils these requirements, and I am excited to commence our collaboration," Tamás Fülöp, Regional Director of SPI International said.

The move reflects the Canal+ company's effort to keep leveraging its expertise to enhance the group's mainstream channel offerings. In line with SPI International's commitment to providing exceptional entertainment and services to global audiences and business partners.

Featuring titles from industry leaders like Paramount Global Content Distribution and Prorom, these additions will provide viewers with an elevated entertainment experience.  "The renewed FilmBox channel fits perfectly into our portfolio, and we are very proud to launch and build the advertising sales channel together," said Zsófia Demeter, Ad Sales Director, RTL Saleshouse.
