BSkyB has announced a three-year output deal with Spyglass Entertainment. The agreement covers the pay and pay-per-view windows and includes an option for SVOD rights. The titles will be made available in both standard and high definition. BSkyB this week extended its Sky Anytime VOD service to owners of Sky HD set-top boxes.
The agreement with the studio, agreed directly between Spyglass and Sky, will cover up to 15 titles starting in 2008. Recent hits for Spyglass have included Seabiscuit, Memoirs of a Geisha, Bruce Almighty, and The Sixth Sense.
Spyglass’s Chief Executive Officers, Gary Barber and Roger Birnbaum, complimented Sky on its success in marketing and promoting movies in the new technological world. (JC)
