The niche movie channel Showtime will add a number of blockbusters to its schedule in the Baltic Republics, with the first titles premiering in October.

This follows a recent agreement concluded by its owner NonStop Television and Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution for Showtime in the Baltic Republics. The deal includes titles such as William Shakespeare’s Romeo + Juliet, The Thin Red Line, Bad Girls and Ladyhawke.

NonStop Television is part of the Millennium Media Group (MMG) and operates 13 channels in 53 countries. Showtime is available in Scandinavia, the Baltic Republics and Africa.
