Under the deal, Altice Studio, the newly-launched channel dedicated to movies and TV shows, will gain first window rights to more than 20 films starting this month. The agreement undercores Altice’s ambition to access premium films and drama series.

The first-run Metropolitan movies will also be available on Altice’s catch up and multi-screen services.

Metropolitan’s credits includes the “Resident Evil” and “The Expendables” franchises. The company’s upcoming slate boasts Roger Avary’s “Lucky Day” (pictured above).

In other Altice-related news, the telco company has inked a global distribution deal with TF1 Group, France’s top commercial network.

The deal with Altice includes the launch of a new channel, TF1 Premium, and covers the catch up service MYTF1, as well as five free-to-air channels and all the games from the soccer world cup in 2018 in Russia.

The channel will be exclusively available on Altice’s subscription-based service SFR Play for 6 months.

Gilles Pélisson, TF1’s president, said the partnership marked a step forward in the relationships between editors and distributors.
