Sky has agreed a deal with Entertainment Film Distributors, bringing the likes of The Master and Silver Linings Playbook to customers signed up to Sky Movies.
The deal also bags Sky the rights to air box-office big hitters such as Beautiful Creatures, The Host, Gangs of New York and Brokeback Mountain, which will be available to view on demand with Sky’s set top boxes or on mobile devices via the Sky Go app.
New movies will also be brought to the channel after they’ve finished their cinema run and will be exclusive for a year thereafter.
Non-Sky subscribers can access the newly acquired suite of movies on tablets, laptops and other web-enabled gadgets on a pay as you go basis though the relatively newly launched Sky Now TV service.
Ian Lewis, Director of Sky Movies said: “We’re delighted to be extending our relationship with Entertainment Film Distributors, who have been great partners for many years.
“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.”
