BSkyB extends download service

Satcaster signs deals with WB, Paramount

LONDON — Europe’s leading paybox BSkyB is to beef up its download movie service following new agreements with Paramount and Warner Bros.

The satcaster claims the development means that Sky Anytime PC will be the first online download service to offer the latest movies from all six Hollywood studios.

The Paramount deal gives BSkyB’s subscribers PC access to titles such as “Mission: Impossible 3,” “The Weather Man,” “Saving Private Ryan,” “Top Gun,” and, from early next year, “Shrek The Third” and “Transformers.”

The Warner Bros. agreement features fare including “Harry Potter & the Goblet of Fire,” “Superman Returns” and “Poseidon.”

Sky Anytime on PC already offers pix from 20th Century Fox, Universal, Sony and Disney.

Since the service bowed in January 2006 BSkyB says its customers have downloaded more than two million films.

Ian Lewis, director of Sky Movies and Sky Box Office, said: “Working with leading content providers has been a key factor in the success of Sky Movies and we’re delighted to be the first download service to offer titles from all the major studios.”
