“The increasing demand for the channel in Europe reflects the popularity of Turkish series or Dizi as a genre that is capable of capturing viewers’ hearts across the world.
“The addition of Dizi to our bouquet of brands offered through Nowo serves to cater to the interests of both Turkish drama and quality series enthusiasts alike.”
