Disney Media Distribution and Fox International Channels have renewed a deal that puts first runs of Disney's films on STAR Movies and Fox Family Movies.
The deal covers output from Walt Disney Pictures, Walt Disney Feature Animation, Pixar and Marvel to the channels' subscribers in 13 markets across Asia. (As a part of a global agreement, Disney will also handle distribution and marketing for all live-action motion pictures produced by DreamWorks from 2011 in all markets globally except India.)
All titles will be offered as a High-Definition (HD) service and made available over the Subscriber Video On-Demand (SVOD) platform.
Fox Family Movies is a new movie channel recently launched in Singapore which will soon launch in other Asian markets. Dedicated to family viewing, it introduces at least 40 new and classic family movies each month from a wide variety of genres in a 100% movie-only schedule.
Recent titles that will be part of the 2011 slate include Alice in Wonderland (pictured) and Toy Story 3.
