Friday 20th March 2020: TalkTalk TV today announced a new partnership with NBCUniversal that would, for the first time ever, make some of the studio’s latest movies available to rent at home on the same day as their intended theatrical release date.
From today, titles from Universal Pictures and its specialty label Focus Features that are currently in cinemas, including Emma, The Invisible Man and The Hunt, will be available to rent on TalkTalk TV.
DreamWorks Animation’s Trolls World Tour will also be available to rent from 6th April, the same day as planned for the UK theatrical release.
Each film will cost £15.95 to rent and customers can re-watch it as many times as they like for 48 hours.
Will Ennett, Head of TV Content at TalkTalk, said: “We welcome NBCUniversal’s decision to make new cinema releases available in the home during this time and are pleased we can help TalkTalk TV customers continue to enjoy the latest films. In such an uncertain time for everyone, we know that consumers are going to be increasingly looking for things to do together at home and hope the partnership with the studio will provide some welcome entertainment and quality time over the coming weeks.”
TalkTalk TV offers a range of entertainment on a flexible monthly basis, making it even easier for customers to enjoy their favourite TV and film without a lengthy contract.
