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.
