BT in deal with NBC Universal for 3D films

MUMBAI: TBT has entered into an agreement with NBC Universal International Television Distribution for the video-on-demand rights in the UK to all the 3D movie titles the studio will release over the next 12 months.

BT has also signed an agreement with Vertigo to show StreetDance, the first British movie to be shot in 3D, featuring Diversity, winners of Britain’s Got Talent 2009, and Flawless BGT finalist and Street Dance Champions.
Under the terms of the NBC Universal deal, two titles already queued up for BT customers are Step Up 3D, set in New York, which customers can see from 29 November, and the animated Despicable Me, featuring the voices of Steve Carell and Russell Brand, which will be available on BT Vision from 14 March next year.

BT Vision will bring viewers 3D films from across range of genres - from family favourites to action blockbusters. All they need is a 3D TV.

BT Vision CEO Marc Watson said, “We already have an extensive catalogue of more than 500 movies in the UK courtesy of our long-term deals with major Hollywood studios and independents like Vertigo. Now Vision viewers can experience films at home in fantastic 3D, thanks to these new deals. This is just the start of 3D on Vision - viewers can expect to hear much more from us in the coming months.” 
BT Vision offers Film Club, a movies subscription pack, with more than 75 favourites every month. Titles include recent hits from PictureBox, Warner Films and Film4, with 20 titles swapping each week – many before they appear on Freeview. For even more movies, customers can watch new blockbusters and Oscar winners on video-on-demand. The top ten Blockbusters are available in HD every month.
BT Vision combines Freeview channels via the aerial with on demand content delivered via BT Broadband. Customers can pay-per-view or subscribe to thousands of hours of sport, film, documentaries, drama and kids entertainment, available on demand and all the Freeview channels, all available on TV.
