RTL Deutschland Inks New WarnerMedia Deal


A slate of WarnerMedia films and series, including HBO Max originals, will be made available on RTL+ via a new volume deal announced by RTL Deutschland.

The deal, effective Q1, also covers exclusive free-TV rights to future feature films and access to the studio’s library of shows and movies across all genres.

RTL Group has set ambitious targets for its streaming services, with plans to increase the annual content spend to around €600 million ($683 million) by 2026 in order to reach 10 million subs for RTL+ in Germany and Videoland in the Netherlands. The aim is to hit €1 billion ($1.1 billion) in revenues and reach profitability by 2026.
