Sky has entered a new multi-year licensing agreement with NBCUniversal for exclusive television rights in the UK and Ireland to current, upcoming and library feature films for its Sky Movies service. All movies will be made available to Sky customers on-demand on Sky Go, as well as in HD and 3D where available. In addition, Sky has entered a separate agreement with Universal Networks International (UNI) to extend the availability of UNI’s television channels on Sky’s subscription TV packages.
Sky Movies customers will have an exclusive window of subscription access to NBCUniversal titles after they have ended their run in UK cinemas. As a result, Sky Movies will be the first subscription service in the UK and Ireland to screen Snow White & the Huntsman, Battleship, Ted, The Bourne Legacy, ParaNorman and Savages. Upcoming releases that are also part of the agreement include Anna Karenina, Les Miserables, The Man With The Iron Fists, Despicable Me 2 and About Time.
Sky customers will also get exclusive subscription access to classic NBCUniversal titles including Jurassic Park, Back to the Future and the American Pie series of films, as well as iconic titles such as Mamma Mia, Gladiator and Scarface.
The full range of titles will also be available to NOW TV customers. NOW TV offers easy and flexible access to Sky Movies across multiple electronic devices with films available for instant streaming. Customers who subscribe to Sky Movies via Virgin Media, UPC and TalkTalk will also be able to enjoy this offer.
