September 4, 2013
Amazon's LOVEFiLM today announced a content deal with Warner Bros. International Television Distribution that brings an extensive new library of animated content for children and nostalgic adults to the LOVEFiLM Instant streaming service.
Included in the deal is more than 15 years' worth of iconic animated Batman series, from "Batman: The Animated Series" (1992) through to "Batman: The Brave and the Bold" (2011), as well as Superman, in "Superman: The Animated Series" - enabling fans of both caped crusaders to savor hundreds of hours of their adventures.
Other celebrated cartoon superheroes making their streaming debut on LOVEFiLM Instant as a result of the agreement include the Justice League in the series of the same name and coming soon, the more recent "Young Justice." Both the original 1980s "Thundercats" and the more recent 2011 adaptation are also available to stream from today.
Chris Bird, Director of Content Strategy at LOVEFiLM, said: "The arrival of Warner Bros. animated content onto the service means that our offering for younger viewers is stronger and more exciting than ever before. We already have a huge range of fantastic films and TV series for junior members to watch across a variety of devices, and we believe that this latest addition cements our position as the market-leading service for families."
Jeffrey R. Schlesinger, President, Warner Bros. Worldwide Television Distribution, said: "We are pleased to have found a new home for some of our most popular animated series on LOVEFiLM Instant as a result of this new deal.
