Sky Movies will continue to air Entertainment Film Distributors (EFD) content after agreeing a new three-year deal with the firm.

The UK film distribution company owns the rights to hit movies including The Master, Silver Linings Playbook, Beautiful Creatures and The Host, plus a number of classic titles.

Brokeback Mountain, The Departed, Gangs of New York, American Psycho and Ali are among the hit movies in EFD's extensive back catalogue.

Sky Movies subscribers will be able to watch EFD films in HD - device and title-permitting - while on-demand and on-the-move viewing options will also be available.

Viewers will be able to watch new EFD releases around six months after they have ended their run in UK cinemas.

Customers with a Sky+HD box linked to their broadband connection will be able to enjoy content through Sky's On Demand service.

Films will also be available for viewing via the Sky Movies monthly pass on NOW TV.

Ian Lewis, Director of Sky Movies, said the new deal means subscribers can continue to look forward to even more of the biggest films, enjoying them on-demand on their Sky+HD set-top box and even taking movies with them on their mobile devices.

"We’re delighted to be extending our relationship with EFD, who have been great partners for many years," he stated.

"As a result of the partnership, we’re able to offer Sky Movies customers exclusive subscription access to EFD’s hit movies such as Silver Linings Playbook, alongside a great selection of their classic titles."

Nigel Green, Joint Managing Director of EFD, said his firm was delighted to be continuing its successful partnership with Sky.

"Having worked with Sky for nearly 20 years, we value their long-standing expertise in providing their customers with the best possible movie-viewing experience, helping film fans get the most out of our great selection of movies," he stated.
