Bell Media has signed what it describes as a long-term and exclusive licensing agreement with Warner Bros. Discovery. Through this agreement, Bell’s online streaming service Crave will gain access to a range of Warner Bros. content. The deal also provides content to CTV, CTV.ca, the CTV mobile application and Bell Media’s specialty channels. The deal includes content from HBO and Max Originals, shows based on DC comics characters, Harry Potter programming, new cable series, library television series, as well as Warner Bros. films.
“We are thrilled to work with our partners at Warner Bros. Discovery to build upon our already strong relationship with this unprecedented agreement, a true landmark deal for the Canadian media industry,” said Karine Moses, senior vice-president of content development and news at Bell Media. “Bell Media is committed to providing Canadians with the most compelling content, and this deal, which secures the biggest titles on screens today, does just that.”
