Rothblum will supervise WBITD’s operations in German-speaking Europe, overseeing the licensing of the Hollywood studio’s content including TV, theatrical motion pictures, telepics and animation to free and pay TV operators over terrestrial, cable, satellite and IPTV platforms, as well as to fledgling ad-supported and subscription VOD clients.

Based in Munich, Rothblum will report to Robert Blair, senior VP for Northern Europe at WBITD, and to Geike.
