Sky extends Warner Bros movie deal

January 25, 2018

Sky has announced an extension to its deal with Warner Bros. The deal will give viewers in the UK, German and Austria the chance to see Warner Bros films such as Wonder Woman premiere on Sky Cinema sooner than ever before (following the home entertainment window).

The agreement with Warner Bros. further strengthens the group’s content offering by ensuring Sky is able to provide the best and broadest range of content to its customers.  Now Sky Cinema customers will be able to enjoy all of the top ten grossing films in the world from last year and access top movie brands including Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings. This is on top of dedicated genre channels, a brand new premiere every day and over 1000 movies on demand.

Ian Lewis, Group Director of Sky Cinema said: “When it comes to movies, Sky Cinema offers our customers the best choice, the best platforms and our renewed deal with Warner Bros. will strengthen our service even further. Warner Bros. offers some of the most iconic films, actors and directors and we’re thrilled to continue this relationship.”

Jeffrey Schlesinger, President, Warner Bros Worldwide Television Distribution said: “Our friends at Sky have been great partners and Sky Cinema has been a terrific home for our movies for many years. We are pleased to have the opportunity to not only continue our strong relationship with Sky but to build upon it even further.”
