Twentieth Century Fox deal for LOVEFiLM
June 25, 2012
Amazon’s LOVEFiLM and Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution have agreed a major multi-year content deal giving LOVEFiLM members streaming access to recent and forthcoming movies and TV series.
LOVEFiLM members will have instant, exclusive on-demand access to the second pay-TV window of Twentieth Century Fox film content.
The film deal commences with titles theatrically released in the UK in 2011, which will be made available to subscribers to the LOVEFiLM service as early as March 2013.
The deal with Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution will also give LOVEFiLM members access to movies and TV series from the studio’s library of titles, and will add to LOVEFiLM’s already extensive TV catalogue. TV titles from Twentieth Century Fox’s television library, available from July 2012, will include early seasons of motorcycle drama Sons of Anarchy and all seasons of 24, Prison Break, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and its spin-off Angel.
LOVEFiLM members will be able to enjoy these, and a huge range of other titles, on-demand as part of their subscription via the LOVEFiLM Instant service – available on the PC, Mac or via Sony Playstation3, Microsoft Xbox 360, Apple iPad and a growing number of Internet-connected TV sets and Blu-ray players.
The deal follows similar content pacts announced by LOVEFiLM in the past 12 months, including agreements with Warner Bros, Sony Pictures, NBC Universal, Entertainment One, STUDIOCANAL, Disney, ABC, BBC and ITV.
Amazon’s LOVEFiLM will continue to rent Twentieth Century Fox titles on DVD, Blu-ray and Blu-Ray 3D via its LOVEFiLM By Post service.
