Turner gets WB pix

Turner Classic Movies has acquired another major movie package via a deal with Warner Bros. for more than 200 titles, including “A Streetcar Named Desire, “”The Exorcist” and “Papillon.”

The newest Turner Broadcasting network, set to launch April 14, also announced its first cable agreement, with Adelphia Cable, which will make Turner Classic Movies available to 250,000 subscribers in April and an additional 500, 000 by the end of 1995.

Terms weren’t disclosed, but Turner announced an earlier multiyear agreement with Paramount for roughly 300 movies — made between 1948 and the mid-’80s — that sources valued at about $ 30 million over the course of the deal. The new network already has access to the Turner Entertainment Co. library, which includes pre-1948 Warner Bros. titles obtained through Turner’s deal for the MGM library.

Turner Classic Movies says it has access to more than 3,600 movies, including the early MGM, WB and RKO titles, as well as the studio acquisitions. Sister networks TNT and TBS also draw extensively on the Turner library.
