Online movie rental service LOVEFiLM will add titles from Paramount Pictures to its video-on-demand (VOD) line-up in Germany. A multi-year content deal was signed with the Hollywood studio, the Amazon subsidiary announced in Munich.
From autumn 2011, LOVEFiLM customers will be able to stream Paramount movies during the German pay-TV rights period window. The package includes, for example, the third part of the Transformers series Dark of the Moon, sci-fi thriller Super 8 and the Coen brothers production True Grit.
The films can be accessed via PC and PlayStation 3 as well as internet-capable TV sets of the Sony Bravia series and Sony Blu-ray players with the Xbox 360 to follow soon.
Additionally, movie fans can rent a large number of Paramount titles from LOVEFiLM on DVD or Blu-ray by conventional mail
