Amazon’s Lovefilm and Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution have announced a multi-year content deal giving Lovefilm members streaming access to recent and forthcoming movies and TV series.
Lovefilm members will have instant, exclusive on-demand access to what is known as the second pay television window of Twentieth Century Fox film content.
The film deal commences with titles theatrically released in the UK in 2011, which will be made available to subscribers to the Lovefilm service as early as March 2013.
The deal with Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution will also give Lovefilm members access to movies and TV series from the studio’s library, and will add to Lovefilm’s TV catalogue. TV titles from Twentieth Century Fox’s television library, available from July 2012, will include early seasons of motorcycle drama Sons of Anarchy and all seasons of 24, Prison Break, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and its spin-off Angel.
Lovefilm is available on the PC, Mac or via Sony Playstation, Microsoft Xbox 360, Apple iPad and a growing number of internet-connected TV sets and Blu-ray players.
This is the latest in a long line of content deals announced by Lovefilm in the past 12 months, including agreements with Warner Bros., Sony Pictures, NBC Universal, Entertainment One, Studio Canal, Disney, ABC, BBC and ITV.
