Headweb Enters Licensing Agreement with NBCUniversal International Television Distribution, Strengthens Overall Content Offering To 7000 Titles

In the pursuit of offering the most qualitative and extensive online movie service, Headweb has entered a licensing agreement with NBCUniversal International Television Distribution for the video-on-demand rights in Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark to a wide range of current and library NBCUniversal feature films, as well as a selection of TV movies.  This new agreement is an important addition to the ever-growing list of Headweb content partners, as well as a welcomed contribution to the content offerings, now reaching 7000 titles.

The title catalogue is growing at a fast pace, now reaching 7000 titles.  In one year the number of titles on the site, as well as rentals, has doubled.

- We are delighted to finally add the NBCUniversal content movies to our catalogue; it has been an important missing piece, says Peter Alvarsson, founder of Headweb.

Under the terms of the agreement, NBCUniversal content will now be available on Headweb’s award-winning service.  Highlights of titles available to Headweb customers in Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark include Battleship, as well as the classic Back to the Future.  New NBCUniversal feature films may be available on the Headweb service as early as the same day they are released on DVD and Blu-ray.  Headweb users can easily watch a trailer, and see previews of all the movies.
