Dendy Direct signs five content deals
VOD service Dendy Direct has strengthened its film and TV content after signing deals with two major US companies and three Australian distributors.
Although none of the arrangements is exclusive, Dendy Direct gets a wide range of titles including Mad Men, the first two seasons of Orange is the New Black, documentary Finding Vivien Maier and US comedies Inside Amy Schumer and Workaholics.
The agreement with Viacom International Media Networks spans 30 seasons of programming from Comedy Central, MTV, Nickelodeon and Nick Jr.
Lionsgate Entertainment is supplying Mad Men, Orange in the New Black, Nurse Jackie, Nashville and more than 70 library films.
Among the titles from Aussie independents are Accent Films’ Little Accidents, Old Joy and Computer Chess, and SC Movies’ An Invisible Sign, Maladies, Stephen King's A Good Marriage and Turkey Shoot.
From Vendetta Films comes National Gallery, Supermensch, Palo Alto, Finding Vivien Maier and The Last Diamond.
Dendy head of digital Suzanne Moody tells IF, “These deals give us more variety with fresh content in movies and TV.” The launches of Netflix and Stan have not impacted Dendy Direct, she added.
