Australia VOD at DVD window
November 3, 2010
Foxtel and Hybrid Television Services have both reached landmark agreements with a number of Hollywood studios to start bringing forward movie release dates in line with DVD releases in Australia. Commencing immediately, selected titles on Foxtel’s existing pay-per-view movie service, and Hybrid Television Services’ Caspa On Demand service, will be released within the DVD window time-frame.
Foxtel and Hybrid Television Services have signed pay-per-view deals with all major Hollywood studios – including Twentieth Century FOX, Universal Studios, Disney, MGM, Paramount, Roadshow, SONY and Warner Bros – along with a range of independent movie distributors. Universal Studios has agreed to make all November and December movie titles available at the same time as DVD release.
