ITV has revealed that James Bond films will soon be available to stream on demand in the UK as part of a new deal.
On Thursday morning, ITV revealed that it had reached a deal with the film’s Amazon distributor MGM Studios, marking the first time the film has been available as part of its AVOD (advertising-based video-on-demand) platform in the UK.
The deal includes 25 official James Bond films, which will be shown first on ITV4 before being immediately available to watch on ITVX for 30 days, starting next month.
Goldfinger will be the first available from March 4, followed by On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, The Spy Who Loved Me, License To Kill, GoldenEye, and Skyfall in the following days.
According to Deadline, these films will be shown on ITV “multiple times” throughout the year, after which they will be available to stream again.Sean Connery as 007 in 1964’s Goldfinger
Select James Bond films are currently available to watch on Apple TV, Google Play, and other services, but only if viewers pay to buy or rent them, as opposed to streaming them as part of an existing subscription.
As well as the film itself, ITV has also announced a host of other content for 007 fans, including a documentary about the “untold story” of James Bond and Daniel Craig’s time at the helm of the franchise.
Daniel’s final appearance as James Bond came in 2021’s No Time To Die, with casting underway for the next actor to play the iconic secret agent.
