Includes some of the greatest British programming of all time
Amazon company LOVEFiLM has signed a subscription video on-demand deal with BBC Worldwide to give its members streaming access to the content from the BBC’s archive of shows, plus celebrated programmes commissioned by other British broadcasters.
The subscription video on-demand (SVOD) deal includes some of the greatest British programming of all time and TV titles will include the popular Doctor Who, the critically acclaimed Life On Mars, spy drama Spooks, highly-acclaimed mini-series Whitechapel, as well as some of the public and critics’ favourite documentaries including the breath-taking Planet Earth.
This is the latest content deal to add further TV content to LOVEFiLM Instant, Europe’s TV and movie subscription streaming service available on a range of internet-connected devices including the PC, Sony PlayStation3, Apple iPad, web-enabled TV sets and Blu-ray players and Microsoft Xbox 360.
The LOVEFiLM Instant gives members immediate access to TV and movie content from major broadcasters and studios including Entertainment One, Disney, Lionsgate, Momentum, Sony Pictures, STUDIOCANAL, Warner Bros. and ITV direct to their living rooms.
In addition, LOVEFiLM members will also continue to benefit from physical DVD rentals with the LOVEFiLM by Post service.
Amazon’s LOVEFiLM CEO Simon Calver said LOVEFiLM is thrilled to be bringing together great British TV content with Europe’s film subscription service.
"This gives LOVEFiLM an even more powerful, unique offering of instant programming for our members to view across a growing number of platforms, for one low monthly price,"
BBC Worldwide UK and Ireland Sales & Distribution head Lisa Rousseau said BBC had a content partnership with LOVEFiLM for several years now and it’s great to see this evolve digitally.
"We’re delighted to give LOVEFiLM’s subscribers the opportunity to instantly watch their favourite British shows, wherever and whenever they wish, alongside a diverse range of great programmes and films," said Rousseau.
