Lovefilm secures Sony Pictures content deal

Amazon-owned movie streaming company Lovefilm and Sony Pictures Television have signed a multi-year content deal giving Lovefilm customers exclusive streaming access to new and forthcoming Sony Pictures titles during the second subscription pay TV window, as well as catalogue titles and TV series, from June 2012.

The agreement with Sony Pictures Television is the latest in a line of exclusive content deals announced by Lovefilm in the UK in recent months, including deals with Warner Bros, Entertainment One, Studiocanal, Disney, Momentum and Lionsgate.

Lovefilm customers members will be able to stream Sony Pictures titles including The Social Network and action-thriller Salt at no extra cost and as part of their existing subscription.

Simon Calver, chief executive of Lovefilm, said: “Our latest major content agreement means we’ll be able to exclusively offer our members world-class content from Sony Pictures. The number of recent high profile deals we have secured means we are able to keep expanding the service, offering our members high quality films and TV and the ability to watch as much as they want for one low monthly price.”
