LoveFilm signs deal with MGM to stream classics and new releases

As now being reported on Forbes, CNBC, Yahoo, TechCrunch and all over the place, we have agreed a new deal with MGM to help grow our range of video on demand titles. This is helping to grow a core part of the LOVEFiLM service that is part of the free trial our affiliates are promoting.

MGM Classics will be available to LOVEFiLM members as part of their subscription including the multi-Oscar winning films West Side Story and The Apartment among other award-winning films. New MGM releases will be available to access instantly on a transactional basis.

Simon Calver, the big dog, chief cyclist and CEO at LOVEFiLM commented:

"We're delighted to bring MGM's legendary content to LOVEFiLM. With over 85 years making top quality movies, the MGM stable will be a notable addition to our expanding 'Watch Online' service. With the digital revolution underway, our opportunity for growth is huge and the addition of MGM titles is a substantial development in enhancing our digital catalogue."
