May 22, 2012
Sony Pictures Television (SPT) has made three new distribution deals in the Middle East region, with local broadcasters in Egypt, Qatar and Dubai. The multi-year deals, brokered by SPT’s recently opened distribution office in Dubai, license broadcast rights to feature films from the Sony Pictures library across a wide variety of genres and decades.
For the first time, SPT has made content distribution deals with Al Rayyan in Qatar and the Egyptian-based television network, Rotana, which will broadcast the features on its multi channel platform. Meanwhile in Dubai, SPT has confirmed a new distribution deal with national broadcaster Dubai Media Incorporated (DMI), who will air their selection on Dubai One.
