VOD paybox pacts for D’Works pix

Japanese co. has already inked with MGM, U, Fox

TOKYO — DreamWorks has signed a content deal with BB Cable TV, Japan’s first and still only video-on-demand service via Internet broadband connection. This is BB’s fourth hookup with a Hollywood studio.

BB will have non-exclusive access to DreamWorks’ library, including recent pics such as “Catch Me If You Can.”

The paybox has already inked with MGM Television, Universal and 20th Century Fox. The new deal means BB Cable TV can offer 2,100 VOD titles to subscribers.

This announcement comes as competition is firming up.

In late January communications giant NTT and satellite broadcaster Sky perfect TV announced the creation of a broadband television service scheduled to start this summer. Other major corporations getting into position are KDDI Corp. and Tokyo Electric Power, the world’s largest utility company.
