LEBANON / Agreement between beIN Media and Italia Film concerning 600 films

beIN Media, which recently expanded its pay TV package with new entertainment channels, has just formalized an agreement with the Lebanese distribution company Italia Film International. For the next five years, beIN will be able to broadcast nearly 600 films distributed by Italia Film, which enjoys exclusive deals with major US groups such as The Weinstein Company and Dreamworks, and which is also Disney’s official sub-distributor in the Middle East and North Africa.
In a statement, beIN highlights some of the upcoming blockbusters it will show thanks to this agreement, including Quentin Tarantino’s “The Hateful Eight” and Tom Tykwer’s “A Hologram For The King”.
Last month beIN Media signed a 5-year agreement with Front Row Media, a US distributor of independent films. In the Arab world competition for the pay-TV market is growing: besides the presence of beIN, OSN and Starz, the region is also preparing for the arrival of the American Netflix in the first quarter 2016.
