Netflix confirms Lionsgate U.K. deal

Streaming pact includes 'Hunger Games,' 'Dirty Dancing'

LONDON — Netflix has formally announced its exclusive multi-year streaming deal with Lionsgate U.K. in Blighty and Ireland.

The news, which had been previously reported in Variety (Daily Variety, Oct. 24, 2011), makes the indie distrib the second content partner in the U.K. and Ireland after MGM Studios inked a deal with the service last week.

Films covered by the deal include upcoming “Hunger Games,” the “Dirty Dancing” remake and action sequel “The Expendables 2,” all of which will be available to Netflix subscribers during the pay TV windows.

Older titles available will include “Reservoir Dogs,” “The Blair Witch Project” and “Saw 3D.”

U.S.-based Netflix is due to launch in the U.K. in the first quarter of 2012, following its rollout across Latin America and the Caribbean this year, which Variety first revealed (Daily Variety, July 15, 2011).

Momentum Pictures, the Brit arm of Alliance Films, has also inked a deal with Netflix, but titles available under the deal have yet to be announced.
