SPI’s Kino Polska TV to expand reach of Turkish channel Dizi

SPI International’s Kino Polska TV is launching Turkish channel Dizi in Poland.

Dizi has rapidly expanded since its initial launch in April 2019 and now claims to reach 25 million households in 81 countries.

Its Polish schedule will include International Emmy Award-nominated series Black Money Love and 20 Minutes, with shows being dubbed into the local language.

Starting from April, the channel will be available and localised in Poland on Vectra and Multimedia Polska in the Gold Package and the MaxBox Package, respectively. SPI said that the channel will come to other operators in the country at a later date.

Berk Uziyel, CEO at SPI International, said the channel would offer “specially-curated programming that features some of Turkey’s most popular and critically-acclaimed productions.”

Bogusław Kisielewski, president of Kino Polska TV, added: “Dizi is the essence of everything that is best in Turkish series and our response to the phenomenon of production from the Bosphorus in Poland. Dizi will broadcast only carefully selected titles that are very popular among viewers around the world and are taking new markets by storm.

“Today, Turkey is a series empire and we – due to the pedigree of our majority shareholder SPI International – have access to the best Turkish content. We intend to use this to build the market position of Dizi in Poland.”
