European entertainment company Sky has extended its partnership with NBCUniversal
Under the terms of the agreement, Syfy and NBCU International’s reality television service, hayu, will launch in 2018 on Now TV, Sky’s streaming subscription service in the UK.
The extensive multiyear agreement between the two companies also covers Sky Cinema and NBCUniversal International Networks’ (NBCUIN) roster of channel brands for Sky’s customers in the UK, Ireland, Germany and Austria. A comprehensive EST and TVOD agreement for Sky Store — which allows customers to buy and rent movies, any time, anywhere — across those territories is also part of the agreement.
The inked deal also covers a range of acclaimed and award-winning films from Working Title and Focus Features, alongside titles from NBCUniversal’s film library.
Customers will also continue to have access to NBCUIN’s portfolio of channel brands. In the UK and Ireland, this includes Universal Channel and Syfy; in Germany and Austria, this includes Universal Channel, 13th Street and Syfy.
