Super Channel lands Fox films

Titles including the Oscar-nominated Juno and The Simpsons Movie will be available on the pay-TV upstart following a multi-year deal with Twentieth Century Fox.

Super Channel has inked a multi-year output deal with Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution that will see the pay-TV upstart air titles including the Jason Reitman comedy Juno and summer box office hit The Simpsons Movie.

Owned by Alberta-based Allarco Entertainment, Super Channel has, since its launch in November, been at pains to drum up marketable programming in order to compete with Movie Central and The Movie Network.

Other titles on the roster include the Bruce Willis vehicle Live Free or Die Hard, the family comedy Alvin and the Chipmunks, the fantasy adventure Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer and the romantic comedy Waitress.
