The service will launch in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Kosovo, Montenegro, Serbia, and Slovenia on December 14, 2022, with Albania, Czech Republic, Hungary, North Macedonia, Poland, Romania, and Slovakia to follow in February.
SkyShowtime first launched in the Nordic countries this year before expanding to Portugal and the Netherlands in October.
“SkyShowtime was created for Europe and we are thrilled to tell customers across Central and Eastern Europe that it’s almost time for SkyShowtime. We are excited to bring them exclusive access to the latest series and movies from our iconic and world-renowned studios as well as a premium line-up of quality local entertainment,” said SkyShowtime CEO Monty Sarhan.
