LOVEFiLM and The Walt Disney Company have come together to announce that Disney movies will now be available to film fans through the LOVEFiLM Player either on the PC, via in-home internet connected devices or the PlayStation 3.
Blockbusters such as Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe are being made available to film fans to rent and stream instantly.
The agreement will see more than fifty films from Disney’s library become available to LOVEFiLM subscribers paying £5.99 a month or more at no extra cost just in time for the Easter holidays.
Recently released Disney titles, such as TRON: Legacy, Tangled and I Am Number Four, will be available to rent and stream in their video-on-demand window on LOVEFiLM¹s pay-per-view service.
Simon Calver, Chief Executive of LOVEFiLM, said: “Our customers will be excited to have even more great films alongside our existing physical and digital titles. This is a great endorsement of the popularity of LOVEFiLM, as Disney is one of the world’s leading studios.”
Catherine Powell, SVP/GM Media Distribution, The Walt Disney Company EMEA added: “We’re working with innovative partners such as LOVEFiLM to offer our programming to viewers in evermore flexible, easy to access ways, and this agreement builds on our existing DVD rental partnership to further extend the availability of our films amongst UK audiences.”
The LOVEFiLM Player is available to download for free on the PS3, although you must have a subscription of at least £5.99 per month to be able to stream movies.
