Sony has come forward and mad a deal with the household name in film streaming – Netflix. And in this deal they have brokered an agreement to allow multi-year, exclusive first-pay-window licensing deal in the U.S. that will allow Netflix first-pay-window rights to Sony Pictures titles following their theatrical and home entertainment windows.
And speaking about Uncharted and Tom Holland and Sony… what a great segue. The Netflix and Sony deal will be valid for the span of 5 years, which means many of Sony’s coming Marvel ventures, namely Spider-Man: No Way Home, will be making their way to Netflix.
All now left to wonder is what conversations are happening around the Marvel/Disney tables and whether Sony discussed their plans prior to creating that Netflix deal.
More as things develop.
