LOVEFiLM Expands UK Content With Sony Deal

LOVEFiLM and Sony Pictures Television have signed a major multi-year content deal giving the Amazon company exclusive streaming access to new and forthcoming Sony Pictures titles during the second subscription pay TV window, as well as catalogue titles and TV series, from June 2012.
The milestone agreement with Sony Pictures Television is the latest in a line of exclusive content deals announced by LOVEFiLM in the UK in recent months, including deals with Warner Bros., Entertainment One, STUDIOCANAL, Disney, Momentum and Lionsgate.
LOVEFiLM members will be able to exclusively stream Sony Pictures titles including the Academy Award winning The Social Network, action-thriller Salt, starring Angelina Jolie, and sci-fi action blockbuster 2012 via LOVEFiLM Instant at no extra cost and as part of their existing subscription.
The deal will also further bolster LOVEFiLM’s extensive range of kids TV titles with modern cult, animation favourites like Transformers, Spectacular Spider-Man and The Karate Kid – adding a raft of series to existing LOVEFiLM catalogue titles like Pingu, Wallace & Gromit and Fireman Sam.
In addition, LOVEFiLM members will have exclusive streaming access during this pay window to a host of future releases from Sony Pictures including the No.1 box office hit Arthur Christmas.
The deal will see Sony Pictures’ recent and forthcoming releases, catalogue titles and TV series added to the LOVEFiLM Instant service – available on the PC or via Sony Playstation 3, Microsoft Xbox 360, Apple iPad and a growing number of Internet-connected TV sets and Blu-ray players.
