Lovefilm brings Twentieth Century Fox to UK service

Amazon-owned online video service Lovefilm has struck a deal with Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution that will give UK subscribers access to the Hollywood studio’s second pay television window.

The deal will see Lovefilm have access to Fox’s 2011 theatrical slate in March 2013. It will also give customers access to series including early seasons of motorcycle drama Sons of Anarchy and all seasons of 24, Prison Break, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and its spin-off Angel.

This is Lovefilm’s latest Hollywood studio deal following arrangements with Warner Bros, Sony, Disney and NBC Universal.

Gina Brogi, executive vice-president of worldwide pay television and subscription video-on-demand for Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution added: “We are delighted to be partnered with Lovefilm on this new window for Fox films in the UK. This film and series agreement enables us to give UK fans yet another avenue to enjoy the great stories and characters they have come to know and love from our studio.”
