BT Vision has agreed a content deal with NBC Universal International Television Distribution to bring a raft of US dramas to its video on-demand service.

Under the deal, BT Vision's TV Pack subscribers will get access to a variety of NBC Universal programmes, including Law & Order, 30 Rock, House and Heroes.

"We are delighted to sign a deal with NBC Universal, so that we can offer some of the most successful US drama series all in one place and available for TV pack customers to watch whenever they want," said BT Vision chief executive Marc Watson.

BT Vision already has existing deals with HBO and Universal Music. It also signed another agreement with Sony Pictures in July for VOD rights to a range of new and classic films.
