AAM will launch VOD websites tomorrow with three of Emap Performance's consumer brands, film magazine Empire, Motorcycle News and Today's Golfer.
This marks AAM's first VOD distribution partnership after sister company LoveFilm and AOL UK.
Empiremoviedownloads.com will eventually have a library of 500 feature films to download. Because AAM has digital deals in place with studios including Universal, Sony and Warner Bros, films on offer will include Superman Returns, Taxi Driver, Ocean's 11, The Da Vinci Code and The Bourne Supremacy. Downloads for rent will cost $5.80 (£2.99) and downloads to own will cost $11.60 (£5.99) and up.
TGgolfdownloads.com will offer content such as video tips and archived coverage of the British Open. Mcnbikedownloads.com will feature racing content, stunt videos and related documentaries. Content on those sites will rent for $3.88 (£1.99) and up.
The deal will launch with 350 hours of content. That includes AAM's library as well as bespoke programming produced by Emap.
