TVN Inks Paramount VOD Deal

TVN Entertainment Corp. announced a major, long term video-on-demand-licensing deal with Paramount Pictures Wednesday.

The deal gives TVN access to such current Paramount releases as School of Rock and Timeline, as well as a broad selection of quality library titles such as An Officer and a Gentleman, the first six Star Trek films, Chinatown and concert film U2: Rattle and Hum, network officials said.

The deal now gives TVN VOD and pay-per-view access to all of the major studios except The Walt Disney Co., which has yet to reach any long-term cable VOD-distribution deals.

"We are extremely excited to include Paramount's quality content in our VOD lineup," TVN senior vice president of programming Neil Goldberg said in a prepared statement.

"With virtually all of the studios on board, we can now begin to focus on building original on-demand networks," he added.
