JioCinema and NBCUniversal have signed a multi-year partnership agreement

JioCinema, a streaming platform owned by Viacom18, and NBCUniversal (NBCU) on Monday jointly announced a multi-year agreement to distribute a number of NBCU TV series and films in India.

A month ago, JioCinema announced that starting in May, it would be the new home for HBO and Warner Bros. content in the nation.

According to the agreement, users will be able to watch shows from NBCU’s renowned content library, which is supported by companies and production bodies like Universal Television, Universal International Studios, Sky Studios, DreamWorks Animation, Universal Pictures, and Focus Features.

Starting in June, JioCinema’s newly announced “JioCinema Premium” SVOD (subscription video on demand) tier will feature NBCU programmes through a Peacock-branded hub.

Through this service, Indian subscribers will have access to Peacock Originals like “The Calling,” an investigative drama series from Emmy winner David E. Kelley, directed and executive produced by Oscar winner Barry Levinson, and “Bel-Air,” a dramatic remake of the Will Smith-starring comedy series from the 1990s.

Future releases of “The Super Mario Bros. Movie,” which features Chris Pratt as Mario, “The Despicable Me/Minions” and “Fast” franchise films, including the recently released “Fast X,” as well as the eagerly anticipated epic thriller “Oppenheimer,” which Christopher Nolan will shoot in IMAX, will also be available on the service.

NBCU offers unscripted series like “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” and “Vanderpump Rules” for viewers of reality television to stream.

The DreamWorks Animation slate will include the Oscar-nominated “Puss in Boots: The Last Wish” and the sci-fi horror movie “M3GAN” from James Wan and Blumhouse.

NBCU’s extensive library of critically acclaimed and popular series, including “Downton Abbey,” “Suits,” “The Office,” “Parks and Recreation,” and “The Mindy Project,” are also included in this agreement.
