Arrow, The Flash to Stream on Bell Media’s Project Latte


TORONTO: Bell Media has scored an exclusive streaming pact with Warner Bros. International Television Distribution for the series Arrow and The Flash to join its SVOD service code-named Project Latte, which has also unveiled its Sci-Fi & Fantasy Collection that includes Doctor Who and Orphan Black.

Arrow and The Flash are based on DC Comics characters. They are part of Project Latte's Superhero Collection, and will be featured in a cross-over event on December 2 and 3 on CTV. The first and second seasons of Arrow will be available when Project Latte launches in December. The Flash, which debuted this fall in the U.S., will join the lineup when the premiere season concludes in 2015.

“With three out of the top four most-watched programs in Canada superhero-themed, there is clearly a demand for this genre of programming,” said Mike Cosentino, the senior VP of programming at Bell Media. “We are delighted to join forces with DC Comics and Warner Bros. to bring these two hit franchises to Project Latte subscribers.”

Alongside the newly announced Superhero Collection comes the Sci-Fi & Fantasy Collection, which will be anchored by Orphan Black and Doctor Who, and the Star Trek collection.

“Some of the hottest TV shows on earth right now are sci-fi and fantasy-themed, so we’ve strategically curated Project Latte to deliver the best of this type of programming,” said Cosentino. “In addition to our own Orphan Black and cult-hit Doctor Who, we are also proud to provide the complete Star Trek collection, one of the most iconic and beloved TV franchises of all time.”
