Soon you’ll be more Swedish on Netflix. The Broadcasting Service announces a new license agreement with SF Studios.
The agreement means that Netflix members in the North will be the first to air new movies after they have been shown in cinemas and made available as movies for purchase and rental. As part of this collaboration, Netflix also obtains a large number of streaming licenses from the SF Studio content library that will be shown across the North.
The new agreement means that SF Studios will be given additional opportunities to invest in Nordic productions and enable films covered by the agreement to have greater exposure in the Nordic countries and more viewers through the Netflix entertainment service in the Nordic region.
We are very excited to be able to expand our cooperation with Netflix to also include distribution of our Northern and International films. Both parties share the same view of the potential of Nordic films (…) We now see significant opportunities to further develop Nordic productions and showcase our films to a larger and wider audience in the Nordic region, Frederick Warstedt, Executive Vice President of Acquisition and Licensing at SF Studios, says in a press release.
We believe this agreement will bring a lot of joy to our Nordic members and we look forward to contributing to Nordic movie production with SF Studios, says Lina Brounéus, Co-Production and Acquisition Manager at Netflix.
Swedish films coming from SF Studios include “Beware of the Jönsson League”, “Out of track”, “Day after Day” and “The Emigrants” with the cinema premiere in 2021.
