Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution has licensed a broad swath of its film library to You on Demand, a multi-platform subscription video-on-demand service in China.
Films included in the agreement include A-Team starring Bradley Cooper and Liam Neeson; Black Swan starring Academy-Award winner, Natalie Portman; 10-time Academy-Award nominated film, Master and Commander, starring Russell Crowe; Speed, starring Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves; and Unstoppable, starring Denzel Washington and Chris Pine.
You on Demand already had a licensing agreement with the programmer for transactional VOD. Under the new SVOD deal, subscribers can access the films via mobile, over-the-top streaming, digital cable and IPTV.
The service, based in New York and Beijing, also carries content from Disney Media Distribution, Paramount Pictures, NBC Universal, Miramax Films, Lionsgate and Magnolia Pictures, as well as a selection of content from Chinese filmmakers.
