Sony Pictures Entertainment's (SPE) latest blockbusters Terminator 3, Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle and Spider-Man are among 80 feature film titles acquired by Germany's ProSiebenSat.1 Group in an exclusive free-TV deal for all of SPE's output from 2001-2003.
The package, which was concluded with Sony Pictures Television International for a reported three digit million Euro sum, also includes several TV movies and series such as The Shield, The Guardian, Joan Of Arcadia and Stephen King's Kingdom Hospital.
Commenting on the deal, ProSiebenSat.1 Media board chairman Urs Rohner said that "the unique package completes our provision with high quality feature film highlights and will further strengthen our position as the leading supplier of big Hollywood cinema in Germany."
The last nine months have seen the ProSiebenSat.1 Group sign programme deals with practically all of the major US studios as well as such suppliers as Miramax, Dimension, Lucasfilm, Senator, Epsilon, Highlight, Constantin and Tobis.
"Our long term supply with attractive feature films of blockbuster quality is today as good as never before in our company's history", Rohner added
