KabelKiosk, the direct-to-cable platform operated by Eutelsat in Germany, has acquired a movie package from US studio Sony Pictures for the video-on-demand (VOD) service of its interactive multimedia portal KabelKiosk Choice.

The agreement has been signed by Rovi Corporation, Eutelsat's VOD partner, and Sony Pictures Television. The users of KabelKiosk Choice can watch the movies directly on their TV screen either through a TV or a set-top box hooked up to the Internet.

The package, which is accessible from now, includes the German children's movie Die Vampirschwestern (The Vampire Sisters), US drama Smashed and horror movie Evil Dead. Titles including After Earth, Grown Ups 2 and The Smurfs 2 will follow over the next few months.
