Multi-territory content exploiter E1 Entertainment has signed North American digital distribution deals with UK-based providers ITV Global Entertainment and ContentFilm.
The ITV arrangement covers over 185 hours of classic British TV series and miniseries - including Michael Gambon series Maigret, the PD James Collection and Anthony Quinn’s The Old Man and the Sea - and the ContentFilm deal is for distribution via iTunes of more than 100 hours of TV series, miniseries and films, including Michael Moore Hates America, Phantom of the Opera and Cracking the Da Vinci Code.
The two deals follow agreements E1 has recently signed with Porchlight Entertainment and Peace Arch Home Entertainment, both of which included North American digital distribution rights.
E1 Entertainment US president Michael Rosenberg said: “We are pleased to add both ContentFilm and ITV to our growing roster of content partners for whom we provide digital distribution services, offering their quality programming to our digital customers. Along with our well-established physical distribution network, we have developed a significant digital infrastructure and will continue to drive digital growth through agreements like these and by securing rights across all media platforms as we acquire content for our library.”
