utd. by content taps African film market
January 22, 2013
Newly launched utd. by content has announced its further global expansion through a recent deal with WB Cape Media, a company spearheading the secure distribution of digital media throughout Africa.
The two companies have already worked together on tent-pole films for Warner Bros and other Hollywood majors across cinemas in South Africa. This deal paves the way for ongoing high profile titles to be serviced and delivered directly in territory for many years to come.
Under the terms of the deal, utd. by content will leverage its relationships with major content owners and film distributors to offer local digital cinema distribution and related services for South Africa and the rest of the African continent. WB Cape Media will deliver the service in territory and work with the local distributors and/or regional studio offices to prepare titles efficiently for it’s theatrical release. The company is the first of its kind in this market managing this type of workflow.
