Sky has signed a deal with STUDIOCANAL to bring its extensive library of films to Sky TV and NOW TV customers. This will also mean that new feature films will become available on Sky Cinema after the standard theatrical release window (once the world returns to normal, that is).
As Europe’s leading media and entertainment company, Sky is an ideal partner to the film production and distribution company, bringing customers hundreds of hours of fantastic films.
Alex Hamilton, CEO STUDIOCANAL UK comments, “We are delighted to be bringing our exciting upcoming line up of films and the glories of the STUDIOCANAL catalogue to the fantastic and ever-evolving Sky platform. We look forward to a great collaboration together over the coming months and beyond.”
This isn’t the first collaboration between Sky and STUDIOCANAL, having previously worked on Sky Originals such as the adaptation of the classic children’s novel The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett, and reimaging of the Noël Coward classic comedy, Blithe Spirit which premiered on 15 January.
This follows the deal announcement in December of a multi-year pay-TV and streaming rights deal between Sky Deutschland and STUDIOCANAL across all Sky distribution channels in Germany and Austria.
This makes Sky Cinema an even more exciting channel for film lovers, with all sorts of STUDIOCANAL classics available to watch and stream from family classics to action titles, such as:
Sky TV and NOW TV customers will also get early access to new releases from the studio following their theatrical release. As of January 2021, there are a number of new STUDIOCANAL titles that will be brought to Sky Cinema on both Sky and NOW TV after their theatrical release, including:
Sarah Wright, Director of Sky Cinema & Acquisitions, Sky UK said: “There‘s so much to look forward to already on Sky Cinema this year. STUDIOCANAL’s brilliant theatrical slate with highly-anticipated, talent-driven films such as Supernova, The Last Letter From Your Lover and The Electrical Life of Louis Wain to name a few, is a fantastic addition to the service. At Sky, we’re committed to bringing customers everything they love, in one place, and our partnership with STUDIOCANAL is another step towards doing just that.”
The partnership with STUDIOCANAL is another step towards Sky becoming a central hub for the best entertainment in the UK. Towards the end of last year, Sky finalised an agreement with Amazon, adding Prime Video to Sky and NOW TV devices, adding its already extensive list of exclusive partnerships.
