The Twilight Saga – Eclipse, The Tree Of Life, Princess Bride, and Dirty Dancing are among the movies that will become available for transactional and subscription VOD on China‘s official streaming site, the companies say. They didn’t disclose terms, but say that they have a “multiyear licensing agreement” for classic Lionsgate and Summit films “and selected new releases.” Lionsgate President of Worldwide Television & Digital Distribution Jim Packer says the deal is one of many the studio is making to distribute its movies and TV shows in China — a huge market that Hollywood is eager to cultivate. “Our website becomes even more attractive to movie fans with the addition of these important Lionsgate and Summit titles, and our audience continues to grow as we present great Chinese and Western films,” M1905 VP Longfei Liang says. Jiaflix Enterprises is a partner at the official Web subsidiary of China Movie Channel/CCTV6. Former Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences President Sid Ganis, a principal at Jiaflix, calls the new agreement “a major step in furthering Jiaflix’s plan to provide the best selection of Chinese and international films to its subscribers in China.” M1905 also shows movies from Paramount.
