Amazon Prime Video & STXfilms Enter Pan-European Output Deal


STXfilms and Amazon Prime Video have entered into a multiyear output deal that spans multiple markets across Europe.

Through the partnership, STX will grant Prime Video all rights to the company’s movies in France. The deal marks the first time a global streaming platform has entered into a multiyear all-rights slate deal in France.

Also, Amazon will be the exclusive pay-1 SVOD home for films from STX in the U.K. and Italy. In the U.K., where STX distributes its films directly, the deal with Prime Video bolsters the studio’s plans to grow its slate, building on recent successes such as Hustlers, I Feel Pretty and Den of Thieves. In Italy, Prime Video will provide a direct output for pay-1 SVOD rights, and STX will continue to work with its preferred partners in the territory for other rights, including theatrical.

“We are thrilled to expand our relationship with Prime Video in such a meaningful way, putting together a truly unprecedented deal that reflects the value of our slate in a changing international marketplace,” said John Friedberg, president of STXinternational. “We look forward to growing our relationship with the team at Amazon in a variety of different ways.”

“Movies have always been popular with Prime members and we are excited to make STX films available on Prime Video in the U.K., Italy and France,” said Brad Beale, VP of worldwide content licensing at Prime Video. “STX has a great track record of delivering entertaining films and we know our customers will love these movies.”
