Local streaming service, Stan, has today announced it has extended its exclusive content partnership with MGM in a new agreement that will see a major new slate of first-run series, as well as several of the studio’s blockbuster films, on Stan.
The announcement follows Stan recently signing new content agreements with NBCUniversal, Lionsgate and WarnerMedia.
The announcement further bolster Stan’s unrivalled line-up of Hollywood studio partnerships – alongside its own continued ramp up of Stan Originalproductions.
New and exclusive first-run MGM series featured in the agreement and coming soon to Stan include: Billy the Kid, an epic romantic-adventure series based on the famous American outlaw; The Box, a supernatural psychological thriller; and the French-Riviera-set series The Reunion, based on Guillaume Musso’s best-selling novel.
An extensive new slate of major Hollywood blockbusters will also become available to stream on Stan in 2023, including director Ridley’s Scott’s acclaimed drama House of Gucci; Paul Thomas Anderson’s coming-of-age comedy-drama, Licorice Pizza; the celebrated biographical musical drama Respect, starring Jennifer Hudson as the legendary Aretha Franklin; and the upcoming animated family comedy The Addams Family 2.
As part of the newly extended partnership, the James Bond franchise is now available to stream on Stan – with the most recent film, No Time To Die (main photo) coming to the platform next year.
“MGM is one of the world’s most instantly recognisable Hollywood studios, its iconic film and television content is celebrated around the world,” said acting Stan CEO, Martin Kugeler.
“We look forward to continuing our partnership with MGM – and further building on Stan’s local leadership position in market with more first-run exclusive series and blockbuster films to complement our unrivalled line-up of Australian made originals.”
MGM president, worldwide television distribution and acquisitions, Chris Ottinger added, “We are thrilled to continue our longstanding relationship with Stan through this robust content partnership, and look forward to sharing an incredible line-up of MGM films and series with even more audiences around the world.”
