Fox Signs Up With Movielink

Internet film download service Movielink has inked a distribution deal with News Corp.'s (NWS - Get Report) 20th Century Fox, the company said Monday.

The Santa Monica, Calif.-based online digital movie service now boasts pacts with all the major film studios. The company says the deal reaffirms that broadband is a viable distribution channel.

Movielink is a joint venture of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Viacom's (VIA - Get Report) Paramount Pictures, Sony Pictures Entertainment, GE's (GE - Get Report) Universal Studios and Time Warner's (TWX - Get Report) Warner Bros. Studios. It also shows nonexclusive content from Disney's (DIS - Get Report) Walt Disney Studios, Miramax, Artisan and others.

"Our deal with Fox marks a very significant step forward for Movielink and the movie industry," said Movielink chief Jim Ramo, in a statement. "Broadband VOD is proving to be a viable distribution platform for delivering premium content, and we are pleased that Fox supports our vision of bringing consumers a wide selection of movies on demand."

The news comes as the big telcos and cable companies fight to entice consumers with the so-called triple threat of Internet, phone and TV service. Advanced digital services like video on demand are expected to play a huge role in radically reshaping the communications landscape.

Movielink will add both new and older Fox titles to its library of more than 1,200 movies.
