Online subscription service to carry U.K. distrib's titles
LONDON — Brit indie distrib Momentum Pictures, an Alliance Films company, has inked a U.K. film distribution pact with European online film and TV subscription service Lovefilm.
Lovefilm, akin to Netflix in the U.S., will offer a selection of Momentum pics, exclusive to the site for a year, including “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” trilogy, plus titles from Momentum’s back catalog.
Lovefilm, which operates in Blighty, Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Germany, has more than 1.4 million members, and offers more than 67,000 titles to members through DVDs and digital streaming. In October, the service pacted with Sony, allowing PlayStation 3 users in Blighty to access Lovefilm content through their consoles. – — Diana Lodderhose
