Sky viewers will be the first in the UK to have access to hit Paramount Pictures movies on TV, after the two firms agreed a new multi-year licensing deal.

An extension of the existing deal between the companies means major cinematic releases, such as 'Noah', 'Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues' and 'Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit', will air first on Sky Movies.

A number of eagerly-anticipated future releases, including 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' and 'Transformers: Age of Extinction', will also make their TV debut on the platform.

Sky Movies subscribers will be able to enjoy Paramount films around eight months after they are released in cinemas. Once on Sky Movies, they will be available exclusively on the service for more than a year.

As well as new releases, Sky Movies customers will have access to a host of classic titles from the Paramount back-catalogue. 'Forrest Gump', 'Top Gun', 'The Godfather' and 'The Godfather: Part II', and all of the 'Star Trek' movies will be available on-demand.

All Paramount content will also be available to Sky Movies customers via Sky Go, the broadcaster's mobile TV service, meaning they can enjoy films on the go.

Ian Lewis, Director of Sky Movies and Acquisitions, said the firm is "delighted" to sign a new deal with Paramount, extending the companies' long-standing partnership.

"This deal will give Sky Movies customers exclusive access to all Paramount Pictures’ new films, including the recent new hits 'Noah' and 'Anchorman 2', as well as the ability to enjoy a wide range of classic titles," he stated.

"This is just the latest example of us giving Sky Movies customers the biggest and best movies to watch, how and when they want."
