"We’ve been expecting you Mr Bond" is the message from blinkbox which has inked an agreement with Metro Goldwyn Mayer Studios (MGM) for over 100 titles including the James Bond film catalogue.
“We’re thrilled to be able to offer the critically acclaimed Skyfall and equally excited to offer the other sensational titles in the Bond catalogue,” said Michael Comish, CEO Tesco Digital Entertainment. “007 has a special place in our hearts at blinkbox – he loves a gadget and he has moved with the times.”
The star attraction for the Tesco-owned streaming on-demand service will be the latest Bond hit Skyfall, the most successful Bond film of all time, as well as all other 22 Bond films. Also included will be other MGM titles such as the Rocky and Robocop films, and classics like The Magnificent Seven, The Silence of the Lambs and The Great Escape. The films, like all blinkbox titles, can be accessed on tablets, games consoles, PCs and Macs and a host of smart devices such as connected TVs, Blu-ray players and set-top boxes.
“MGM is always looking for opportunities to bring our world class library to new global audiences. We are delighted to share the legendary James Bond franchise with Tesco’s blinkbox viewers across multiple platforms for James Bond’s 50th Anniversary,” commented Chris Ottinger, president, international television distribution & acquisitions, MGM.
