Fightbox HD channel, the worldwide fight channel from SPI International, started its roll out at MIP TV in Cannes. "The interest we’ve been receiving is overwhelming. We will be on the air and on all types of screens from USA to France to India with more than 25 platforms currently negotiating to sign. We have a winner!" said Loni Farhi, the president of SPI International.
Fightbox HD is already broadcast from ASTRA 23.5E. The channel features most popular contact sports including the fastest-growing MMA. Viewers can watch the best selected fight events from U.S.A., Japan, Europe and other countries, profiles of the most known fighters from UFC, IFC and other leagues as well as original FightBox programming produced in New York. Farhi expects to offer live events coverage on FightBox HD already in the beginning of 2012.
