Highlight and its subsidiary Constantin Film will continue to contract with Paramount for their portfolio of products in Germany, while Highlight/Rainbow Home Entertainment will distribute Paramount physical products in Austria and Switzerland. The five-year contract begins in 2016.

“We are delighted to continue working with Paramount and look forward to ongoing success as the home entertainment landscape continues to evolve,” said Franz Woodtli, managing director of Highlight.
