Sky has penned a multi-year pan-European deal with Sony Pictures Television (SPT).
The agreement will see Sky bring all new and future Sony releases to its subscription and transactional movie services throughout the UK, Ireland, Germany, Austria and Italy.
Sky claim that the Sony content will be available via Sky Movies, Sky Cinema and Sky Film ‘over a year’ ahead of any other subscription service.
It will also be available on a transactional basis via Sky Store, Sky Select and Sky Primafila.
Gary Davey, managing director of content at Sky, said, “Sony has a fantastic track record of producing big global hits, with a really exciting slate of films coming up including Ghostbusters and Inferno.
“Along with our investments in entertainment, sport and the arts, major agreements like this help meet our commitment to provide our customers with exclusive, world-class films and programmes and the very best TV experience.”
Keith LeGoy, president of international distribution at SPT, added, “Sky is a fantastic collaborator and this landmark movie deal across multiple territories further cements our relationship over the coming years.
“Together, we are now able to bring what are sure to be some of the biggest and most talked-about movies and upcoming releases to Sky viewers across Europe for the first time.”
