ITV and MGM International Television Distribution (MGM), a subsidiary of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc., announced today an exclusive, multi-year agreement to bring the James Bond film catalogue, including the latest instalment, SKYFALL, to viewers in the UK.
All 23 films in the franchise will be available for free on ITV. The multi-year deal marks a return of the Bond catalogue to ITV, where the films can been seen across ITV, ITV2, and ITV4.
