CBC and ContentFilm conclude international sales deal

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation announced it has completed its transaction with ContentFilm plc for the international distribution rights to its program catalogue, which includes approximately 136 active titles comprising 1,000 hours of programming and a potential additional 1,000 hours related to other titles, first announced on December 18, 2007 and later approved by the CBC Board of Directors on January 23, 2008.

While terms of the transaction are confidential, CBC receives ongoing profit participation on gross receipts arising from sales. Specifically excluded from the agreement are CBC’s Canadian distribution rights, its archives, stock footage sales and certain US and Canadian DVD rights.

“As we have said from the beginning, ContentFilm is among the best-known and most respected organizations of its kind in the world, with extensive international reach and sales capability” said CBC spokesperson Jeff Keay.

“This agreement represents a significant win for the CBC, for Canadian taxpayers and for the producers, actors and others who have a stake in the programming, which will now have an opportunity for greater exposure and sales internationally. Under the terms of the agreement, benefits will continue to accrue to rights holders of the programs, including the CBC. We look forward
to working with ContenfFilm.”
