Amazon’s LOVEFiLM has announced a content deal with Warner Bros. International Television Distribution that brings an extensive new library of animated content to the UK-based LOVEFiLM Instant streaming service.
Included in the deal is more than 15 years of iconic animated Batman series, from Batman: The Animated Series (1992) through to Batman: The Brave and the Bold (2011); as well as Superman, in Superman: The Animated Series – enabling fans of both caped crusaders to savour hundreds of hours of their adventures.
Other celebrated cartoon superheroes making their streaming debut on LOVEFiLM Instant as a result of the agreement include the Justice League in the series of the same name and coming soon, the more recent Young Justice. Both the original 1980s Thundercats and the more recent 2011 adaptation are also available to stream from today.
The arrival of Warner Bros. kids content is the most recent in a series of new deals signed by LOVEFiLM and builds on the already vast and varied collection of children’s content available to stream, including titles from world renowned studios such as Disney, Marvel, NBC Universal Kids, Saban, Aardman and DHX Media.
“The arrival of Warner Bros. animated content onto the service means that our offering for younger viewers is stronger and more exciting than ever before,” said Chris Bird, Director of Content Strategy at LOVEFiLM. “We already have a huge range of fantastic films and TV series for junior members to watch across a variety of devices, and we believe that this latest addition cements our position as the market-leading service for families.”
“We are pleased to have found a new home for some of our most popular animated series on LOVEFiLM Instant as a result of this new deal,” said Jeffrey R. Schlesinger, President, Warner Bros. Worldwide Television Distribution. “We are certain that subscribers, both kids as well as animation enthusiasts of all ages, will love having on demand access to these terrific series.”
