Sky Movies has announced its latest exclusive deal, this time with indie film specialists Entertainment Film Distributors.
The deal will see hit titles including The Master, starring Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman and Silver Linings Playbook, starring Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper heading to Sky Movies subscribers.
Other classics available include Brokeback Mountain, The Departed, Gangs of New York, American Psycho and Ali.
As well as arriving on Sky Movies channels and available uncut and ad-free on via Sky Movies Box Office, you’ll also be able to stream them on demand via Sky Go on your laptop, tablet or phone. Non-Sky TV subscribers who’ve signed up for Now TV will also be able to access the films with a Sky Movies monthly pass.
Part of the deal will see new titles being available exclusively via Sky Movies and Now TV for more than a year, with new titles arriving six months after cinematic runs have finished.
Ian Lewis, Director of Sky Movies said: “We’re delighted to be extending our relationship with Entertainment Film Distributors, who have been great partners for many years. As a result of the partnership, we’re able to offer Sky Movies customers exclusive subscription access to EFD’s hit movies such as Silver Linings Playbook, alongside a great selection of their classic titles.”
Nigel Green, Joint Managing Director of Entertainment Film Distributors, added: “We’re delighted to be continuing our partnership with Sky, meaning that Sky Movies customers will be able to enjoy our hit films and classic titles. Having worked with Sky for nearly twenty years, we value their long-standing expertise in providing their customers with the best possible movie-viewing experience, helping film fans get the most out of our great selection of movies.”
Upcoming sci-fli flick, The Host based on the Stephenie Meyer novel of the same name, will be one of the first films to arrive exclusively on Sky Movies and Now TV as a result of this deal.
