Lovefilm signs Arrow, The Following, Hostages and Revolution for Amazon Prime Instant Video

Video streaming service Lovefilm will add Warner Bros hits Arrow, The Following, Hostages, Revolution and The 100 later this year.

Lovefilm, which rebrands as Amazon Prime Instant Video tomorrow, will carry the shows when they’ve finished their first run on British TV (mostly on Sky 1 or Sky Atlantic).

The first seasons of Arrow, The Following and Revolution will go live on Amazon Prime Instant Video this year with Hostages and The 100 in 2015 (they haven’t shown anywhere in the UK yet).

Jeffrey Schlesinger, president of Warner Bros Worldwide Television Distribution, said: “We are very pleased to extend and develop our relationship with Amazon in a deal that demonstrates the growing appetite for SVOD rights to our TV shows in the UK.

“UK viewers can now look forward to either re-watching or discovering these quality series on the Prime Instant Video streaming service in the coming months and years.”   

“We are incredibly excited to bring these critically acclaimed shows to UK TV fans when they arrive on Prime Instant Video, Britain’s largest subscription streaming service, later this year,” added Jason Ropell, head of Amazon Instant Video International Content Acquisition.

“Launching in July with Arrow season one and Revolution season one, these standout series will be available on demand and all at once, adding to our already vast catalogue of exceptional TV shows available to stream at the viewers’ convenience.”
