Online film and TV company blinkBox Entertainment has appointed Doug Davis as acquisitions director.

Davis had been advising the company and is now with blinkBox full time, signing up film and TV partners for the service.

He had previously been a TV agent at William Morris in London and had also served as European sales director for AtomFilms.

'The blinkBox proposition is very exciting for film and TV rights owners. Blinks are fun messages between friends which encourage audiences to discover new shows and re-connect with old favourites,' he said. 'From a studio perspective, blinks are a fantastic promotional tool to drive digital revenue streams, including VOD, download-to-own, mobile and advertiser-supported viewing.'
