Soon-to-be-launched streaming video service M-GO has announced content licencing agreements with DreamWorks Animation and Relativity Media.

M-GO will provide consumers with streaming access to animated film franchises such as DreamWorks' Shrek, Madagascar, Kung Fu Panda and How to Train Your Dragon, as well as Relativity's live action releases The Raven, Mirror Mirror and Act of Valor. Going forward, consumers will be able to rent or purchase digital entertainment new releases and catalogue films across devices and platforms.

These deals join M-GO's previous content licencing agreements with NBCUniversal, Paramount Pictures, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, Twentieth Century Fox and Warner Bros.

"M-GO brings value to the marketplace by providing high-quality film and TV content to consumers on the devices they are already using."
