Under the new agreement, Sinema TV will get first pay-TV window rights to fresh Sony Pictures theatrical titles.
Sony Pictures Television has signed first-run feature film slate deal with Turkish pay-TV operator Sinema TV that expands the two companies’ existing library content deal.
Under this new agreement, Sinema TV will now get first pay-TV window rights to fresh Sony Pictures theatrical titles such as Venom: Let There Be Carnage, Uncharted, Ghostbusters: Afterlife and Hotel Transylvania: Transformania.
In April SPT and Sinema TV signed a three-year volume deal comprising the bulk of Sony’s recent library titles. That agreement includes an exclusive one-month window in July to rights in Turkey for the entire Spider-Man franchise on Sinema TV.
Commenting on the deal, Ferik Faruk Boyacioglu, Sinema TV Partner and CEO, said: “We are delighted to expand our long-term cooperation with Sony Pictures Television with a multi-year first pay deal. With this new deal, we will be able to present our viewers a variety of fantastic movies which are highly valuable in the time of pandemic.”
Mark Young, Executive VP of networks and distribution for EMEA at Sony Pictures Television, added: “We have a fantastic collaborative relationship with the team at Sinema TV and we are really pleased to announce this deal to bring them the first pay window rights in Turkey to some of SPE’s most anticipated upcoming theatrical titles.”
