Twilight, Mad Men as you go as M-GO roars in new deal with Lionsgate

The M-GO digital entertainment service has broadened its bouquet considerably in a content deal with Lionsgate.

The deal will mean that the pay-as-you-go offering will be able to show Lionsgate's library of films and TV shows, including The Hunger Games and Twilight franchises, Tyler Perry's Madea films and the multiple Emmy Award-winning TV series Mad Men. Indeed series six of the series, featuring Don Draper and Madison Avenue colleagues, will be at the heart of the kick-off offering.

As the relationship develops, the two companies will also explore new content delivery models for the free service which is available on a number of platforms including Android, iOS and Windows connected devices. M-GO is also pre-loaded on LG Electronics Smart TVs; Samsung's Smart TV's, Blu-ray players and tablets;  VIZIO's Smart TVs, Blu-ray players, tablets and digital media players; and Intel Ultrabook devices.

"Getting Lionsgate content was a top priority for M-GO. Being the 'people-friendliest' digital entertainment service means never resting until we have secured the entertainment people want most at their fingertips such as their hot content like Nashville, Anger Management and The Impossible," said M-GO CEO John Batter, commenting on the deal. "We look forward to working with Lionsgate to lead the industry by pioneering new ways to maximise the benefits of digital by providing amazing entertainment instantly and earlier than ever before for consumers in the US."

“M-GO is exactly the kind of entrepreneurial partner with whom we like to be in business, and our partnership underscores the growing spectrum of digital and traditional platforms available for monetising our content," added Lionsgate president of worldwide television & digital distribution, Jim Packer.

"We're pleased to give M-GO access to our full range of content because they share our commitment to being at the forefront of home entertainment initiatives designed to meet the changing needs of our consumers."
