“This partnership is a testament to the strength of our relationship with Sony Pictures Television Canada,” said Yann Paquet, the VP of Quebecor Content. “It will not only give us access to some of the best Sony Pictures French-language films and series but also gives us full flexibility as to how we wish to program the content on TVA Group’s linear channels and on our SVOD service, Club illico, a token of their confidence in Quebecor Content. This major deal with our longstanding partner will help us continue to offer viewers in Quebec the very best French-language content.”

“We are thrilled to renew our agreement with Quebecor Content including breakout hits like The Good Doctor and S.W.A.T., a lineup of new cable series such as Absentia, Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams and Mr. Mercedes, and new seasons of The Blacklist,” said Phil King, the senior VP of international distribution for Sony Pictures Television Canada. “We value our relationship with Quebec’s largest media group and look forward to working with Yann Paquet and the Quebecor team.”
