E1 to partner with Beyond

E1 Entertainment is branching out into Australia and New Zealand following a deal with Brisbane-based Beyond Home Entertainment. E1 will distribute films and TV shows on DVD in both territories in partnership with the Aussie distributor. The deal was brokered by E1's international home entertainment manager Billy Watson, who will also oversee things from his London office. 'The initial focus will be distribution of non-theatrical film and TV programs, but E1 also plans to distribute its properties in other formats, including digital and all television formats,' said president of filmed entertainment, Patrice Théroux.
