Orange has won exclusive rights to films such as White House Down and Captain Phillips, after signing a deal with Sony for movie and television rights.
The France-based operator will have exclusive first-run rights to all of Sony Pictures Television's forthcoming films for its OCS Pay TV service.
OCS is a package of themed channels dedicated to movies and TV dramas that is available on Orange TV and a range of service providers including Canalsat, SFR, Numericable and Bouygues Telecom. It was created in 2008.
Serge Laroye, President of OCS and Executive Vice President, Content Direction at Orange, said: “This agreement with Sony Pictures Television adds significantly and qualitatively to the content for our 100 percent cinema and TV series offer and confirms our position as a premium service – it is exactly the kind of content our subscribers love. The partnership is also a reflection of both parties’ continued commitment to cinema.”
Last month, Orange revealed revenues fell 3.5 percent to €19.3 billion in its home market in 2014 as it continues to battle France's ultra competitive telecoms market.
Mike Wald, Executive Vice President, International Distribution for Sony Pictures Television said: “This new partnership with OCS secures significant distribution of our world class film and TV content in one of our most important markets. We hope to expand this partnership to even greater levels in the near future.”
