“Our Dizi brand, which currently boasts a catalog of some of the best Turkish drama series, has garnered immense popularity across the globe since its launch. We are delighted to partner with Comcast, one of the most prominent players in the market, to jumpstart Dizi’s U.S. expansion and to bring the magnetizing world of Turkish series to the homes of millions in the region,” commented Berkin Ecevit, Sales and Business Development Director at SPI International.
Established in April 2019, Dizi has expanded its global footprint rapidly and is currently available through multiple operators and digital platforms worldwide with linear and on-demand propositions. “Our partnership with Dizi is an exciting new edition to our international library for drama series lovers. We are excited to continue to grow our international entertainment offerings with additional language choices, as well as making it easily accessible to our customers who can simply say ‘Show me Dizi’ into their voice remote,” said Rebecca Simpson, Executive Director, Multicultural & International Video Strategy, Xfinity Consumer Services.
