BT Vision signs up Miramax for movies on demand

It isn't just Netflix and Lovefilm racing around Hollywood trying to sign up all the movie studios (we like to imagine this is literally happening, Wacky Races stylee) - BT has got in on the act by signing up Miramax for its BT Vision platform.

The partnership means that BT Vision customers will now have access to a collection of movie classics that have totalled 284 Academy Award nominations and taken home the Oscar 68 times. Movies such as Chicago, Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill 1 and 2, The English Patient, Good Will Hunting, The Aviator and Scream.

Marc Watson, CEO, BT Vision, said: "Movies are very popular with Vision customers – they watch well over two million films on demand every month. This deal will give our customers the chance to see a broad range of Miramax’s independent, ground-breaking and crowd-pleasing films and will further strengthen our position as the UK’s best on demand television provider."

The films will be found in the BT Vision Film area of the service - if you cough up your £12.50 Unlimited fee, you'll get free access. It's available now.
