I should have posted this some time ago but just remembered I was off enjoying some sunshine in Turkey when we announced the news. As well as the Warner Bros announcement today we also signed a deal with STUDIOCANAL to offer their titles to LOVEFiLM members as part of their subscription at no extra cost.

A summary of the press release:

LOVEFiLM and STUDIOCANAL have signed an exclusive long-term deal in the UK and Germany giving LOVEFiLM members access to the portfolio of new and library movies from the leading international film distributor for a 12-month window.

Unknown, starring Liam Neeson, and thriller Source Code, starring Jake Gyllenhaal, will be among the first titles available in the UK and Germany from this Autumn. Future films will include the critically acclaimed, No.1 British thriller Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and horror flick Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark produced by Guillermo del Toro. In addition, members will be able to stream titles from STUDIOCANAL’s library – one of the most comprehensive film catalogues in the world – including the Oscar winning war drama The Pianist, Apocalypse Now, directed by Francis Ford Coppola, and critically acclaimed psychological thriller Mulholland Drive.

LOVEFiLM was acquired by Amazon in February 2011 and has major streaming content deals in place with Disney, eOne, Icon, Lionsgate, MGM, Warner Bros and STUDIOCANAL.
