LOVEFiLM has struck a major content deal with leading independent distributor Momentum Pictures, an Alliance Films Company, offering its members a catalogue of titles to watch online and via internet-enabled devices exclusively through the LOVEFiLM Player.
The agreement sees LOVEFiLM, Europe’s largest subscription service streaming movies and TV episodes over the internet and sending DVDs by post, boosting its digital streaming offering with a selection of top titles that will not have been seen on any subscription or TV movie service before, including the award winning Millennium Trilogy films – The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire, and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest.
The new titles, which will be exclusive to LOVEFiLM for one year, include 30 brand new films available to watch as part of members’ subscriptions, as well as further titles from Momentum Pictures’ back catalogue such as Dorian Gray, 44 Inch Chest and Brooklyn’s Finest.
Simon Calver, CEO of LOVEFiLM commented:
“We successfully launched LOVEFiLM on the PS3 last week. These new, never-been-seen-before on subscription TV titles will drive growth on that new service in the heart of the living room. This deal is another great milestone for LOVEFiLM’s streaming service, allowing us to further enhance our digital offering with a selection of must-watch titles from one of UK’s leading studios. LOVEFiLM’s exclusivity in this partnership will mean that we are the only digital outlet offering such quality titles – further securing our place as a leading provider in digital entertainment.”
Nick Smith, Head of TV & New Media Sales at Momentum, said:
“We are delighted to be working with LOVEFiLM to provide new and exclusive content for their constantly growing online offering and believe it to be the perfect platform from which lovers of independent films can access the best in current film entertainment.”
