Sky, Channel 4 Strike First-of-Its-Kind Content-Sharing Deal

British pay-TV heavyweight Sky and its free-to-air counterpart Channel 4 have struck a first-of-its-kind content-sharing deal, with an agreement that covers premium sports and drama. Pubcaster Channel 4 will show Sky’s Tim Roth revenge drama “Tin Star” and Formula 1 racing coverage. In return, Sky will show series from Channel 4’s international drama service Walter Presents, as well as the new season of the free-TV broadcaster’s police drama “No Offence.”

The unusual hookup comes as new kinds of partnership and pacts are being forged in response to the reshaping of the TV landscape by U.S. streamers. Pay-TV firms in Britain have already started bundling Netflix and Amazon, and free-TV broadcasters have been co-producing with the FAANG companies. But the Sky-Channel 4 deal is the first time a pay-TV firm and pubcaster have shared high-end drama and premium sports in this way.

Newen buys into Pupkin

French production giant Newen has continued its expansion in Europe by taking stakes in the Danish producer of The Bridge and Dutch production outfit Pupkin.

Newen has acquired a 60% stake in Pupkin – which is currently producing Netflix’s first original Dutch drama – through its existing Dutch firm Tuvalu Media Group, in which it bought a majority stake in February last year.

In addition, Newen is taking a 33% stake in The Bridge producer Nimbus Film, having already paired with the firm on its latest drama, Northern Lights, earlier this year. New developments are already in the works, including an animated adaptation of the Antboy franchise led by Blue Spirit.

Announcing the deals, Newen said the aim was to cross-fertilise talent, formats and relationships with local players while bolstering its own distribution slate.

Facebook Watch goes global

Social media giant Facebook has begun rolling out its Watch video platform to the international market, a year after the service launched in the US.

Facebook Watch, which harnesses the social interaction of its parent site, will be available to all countries around the world by tomorrow.

Additionally, Facebook has announced the international roll-out of Ad Breaks, which allow creators to make money by inserting ads into their content.

Already in use in the US, the monetisation provision will initially be extended to the UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand, with a further 21 countries, including France, Colombia, Sweden and Thailand, added in September.

Launched in the US last August, Watch offers originally commissioned and third-party shows, allowing users to start conversations with friends, other fans and the content creators themselves. It also lets users save videos for future viewing, and uses their interests to catalogue content they might want to watch.
