Microsoft disclosed in an announcement that its MSN Video Player service would start showing full length movies from Paramount Pictures.
The new deal, which Microsoft calls the first of its kind in the UK, will allow users in the United Kingdom to view content from Paramount on the player, which will include both movies and clips. Microsoft is however tight-lipped with regards to what content will be shown.
But considering Paramount is a major movie production studio who owns the rights to the Transformers franchise, Star Trek and Indian Jones the deal could prove quite lucrative.
The full-length movies from Paramount will initially be available in the UK, with a rollout to Italy, Spain, France, Germany and the Netherlands to follow.
