Currently, company representatives have not announced an official price for access to the platform in the latter countries.
“SkyShowtime was created for Europe and we’re excited to be able to tell customers in Central and Eastern Europe that it’s time for SkyShowtime. And that means exclusive access to the latest series and movies produced by our world-renowned studios, as well as a premium range of quality local entertainment. After successful launches in Northern Europe and Portugal expanding into these important markets and bringing SkyShowtime to even more customers in Europe is a crucial moment for us,” according to a statement by Monty Sarhan, CEO SkyShowtime.
SkyShowtime will premiere the most popular movies, premium series and children’s content. The selection of titles will be high quality, as they are from the world’s biggest production houses, as mentioned above.
