Viasat inks movie deal with SF

Scandinavia-focused broadcaster Viasat has inked a movie deal with Swedish-based movie studio Svensk Filmindustri.

The agreement gives Viasat exclusive pay-TV rights to SF’s movies across its premium movie channels in Scandinavia.

The deal, which kicks in this year, will allow Viasat to show 12 SF movies a year. As well as being broadcast on the various linear TV1000 channels operated by Viasat, the agreement allows the broadcaster to make them available, exclusively, in its subscription video-on-demand service.

Viasat recently inked a similar agreement for movies with NBC’s NBC Universal International Television Distribution.
