Sky keeps first-run Warner Bros movies and Turner channels

Sky customers will continue to enjoy first-run access to WarnerBros movies, plus ongoing access to Turner movie and children's channels as part of a new deal.

As part of a wider deal reached with WarnerMedia, that includes the continued partnership with HBO (reported here), Sky will continue to hold the pay TV rights for Warner Bros. first-run feature films for Sky Cinema customers and will continue to carry WarnerMedia's Turner channels TCM Movies, Cartoon Network and Boomerang on its TV platforms.

Sky has also promised "richer on-demand content" from both Boomerang and Cartoon Network as part of the agreement, which will build on some of the new children's programming being added to the HBO Max service in the USA.

Jeffrey R. Schlesinger, President, Warner Bros. Worldwide Television Distribution, said:
We are thrilled to find new ways to deepen our longstanding relationship with Sky, and bring a fresh dimension to the great content we continue to bring to consumers.
