ProSiebenSat.1 and Warner Bros. International Television Distribution have extended their existing licensing deal.

The German broadcasting group will continue to hold the exclusive free TV rights to Hollywood blockbusters and television series, which now include Batman vs. Superman, Tarzan, the Lord of the Rings series, the Harry Potter movies, the cult movie the Hangover, and Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. The trilogy Fantastic Beasts and where to find them, which is based on the novel of the same name by J. K. Rowling, and German movie productions like Der geilste Tag with Matthias Schweighöfer and Florian David Fitz are also part of the deal.

"Movies and series from Warner Bros. are among the best of our industry," said Rüdiger Böss, EVP for group programming acquisitions at ProSiebenSat.1 . "We have been collaborating for many years and Warner productions are regularly rated highly by our viewers. I am therefore delighted that we have managed to continue this extraordinary partnership and thus to secure many attractive film and series productions for the coming years."
