Looks like Sky’s using its cash reserves to tie-up big movie studios so the likes of Netflix and LoveFilm are left wanting. Warner Brothers have signed on for Sky’s raft of services for, meaning WB movies will only be available on TV and streaming from Sky, for a whole year, six months after their cinema releases. Quite a coup for Now TV.
It’s bad news for Netflix and LoveFilm, but then neither are really competing in the first “pay TV window” that Sky’s grabbing. Still, for those looking for Warner’s latest movies, they should pop up on Now TV six months after the cinema, so you won’t need to get off your arse to watch the most recent raft of blockbusters anymore.
