LoveFilm strikes MGM movie streaming deal

LoveFilm has upped its online movie streaming service following a deal with MGM, which will bring movies including The Graduate and Quantum of Solace to its online player.

Customers can watch the movies, including Tarzan and Thelma & Louise, on a pay-per-view basis.

The deal marks the latest move in LoveFilm’s expansion strategy, which has so far included content deals with Warner Bros Entertainment, as well as deals with Samsung and Sony to offer the on-demand movies through their TV sets.

It is understood LoveFilm is boosting its streaming service in anticipation of the expected arrival of US movie streaming giant Netflix in the UK.

LoveFilm also plans to launch on the Sony Playstation 3 and is eyeing a potential tie-up with Project Canvas.

Yesterday BT signed a deal with Walt Disney to bring the company’s video-on-demand service ABC TV to BT Vision.
