Finnish broadcaster MTV has signed an exclusive content deal for its streaming service C More with Nordisk Film, a leading Nordic entertainment company. The new collaboration ensures that C More will grow into the largest streaming service of local content in Finland within the next years.
MTV acquires the first pay TV rights for the multiple new Finnish, Nordic and US film titles that Nordisk Film brings to the market every year. Furthermore, MTV has acquired the rights to broadcast local and international titles from Nordisk Film as part of the deal.
Nordisk Film is the largest distributor of local films in Finland and has a strong slate of Nordic and international films as well. New local films, that go into production in 2021, will be available on C More in 2022, thus securing C More the largest selection of local movies on a Finnish streaming service.
“We have listened to our consumers. They have wished for more films on C More. Nordisk Film is the best possible partner for this. Our aim is to be the best possible home of the local content, the C More streaming service that Finns love,” says Marko Karvo, Chief Content Officer, MTV.
“We are very excited to have entered into this strong deal with MTV. It follows similar deals we have made with local partners in other Nordic countries, and it is part of our strategy of bringing the best local and international content to as many customers as possible. With its strong streaming service C More, MTV is a great partner for us and our many producing partners,” says Kenneth Wiberg, Senior Vice President, Nordisk Film.
The first titles from Nordisk Film will land on C More in November with “Knives Out” followed by “Bombshell” and “1917”. The deal will also provide C more with a range of coming Hollywood productions, top movies and successful sequels, like “John Wick 4” and “Knives Out 2”.
