BSkyB and Disney extend film deal
UK pay TV giant BSkyB has extended their movie output deal with Disney, the fourth such renewal since their original deal 24 years ago.

BSkyB will keep "first subscription pay TV rights to Disney films, including Pixar, Marvel and Lucasfilm releases," and get additional rights on other platforms.



Additionally, the companies will launch a new "Sky Movies Disney" channel which will play both new and classic films in the UK and in Ireland. BSB will allow continue to broadcast Disney Channel, Disney XD and Disney Junior, including their HD versions.

Sky Movies Disney will have first run rights for new films like Wreck-It Ralph, and Pixar's Brave. They will be exclusive, as well, blocking out rivals like Netflix and Amazon's LoveFilm.
