Sony Ent. Television signs with BT

Studio launches branded channel in U.K.

BRUSSELS — Sony Entertainment Television makes its U.K. debut in March following a deal with multi-patform paybox BT Vision, announced Thursday.

Sony’s branded channel will offer Brit audiences U.S. dramas such as “Damages” and “The Shield,” and repatriate local history with period drama “The Tudors.”

BT Vision will also carry Sony Retro, rerunning 1970s series such as “Charlie’s Angels,” “Starsky and Hutch” and “Diff’rent Strokes.”

Agreement builds on a 2009 deal with Sony Pictures Television that feeds BT Vision with current and library movie titles.

“Launching in the U.K. as a subscription on-demand service is an important milestone for our networks business and demonstrates our commitment to growing a networks presence for SPT on key digital platforms,” said Sony’s international networks topper Ross Hair.
