News: Lovefilm & Saban

I can see a lot of people being excited about all the Power Rangers being available on Lovefilm. Not so sure that anyone will be glad to see Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation, in any format ever..


LOVEFiLM, an Amazon company, has today announced a content deal with Saban Brands which brings 20 years’ worth of episodes of the much-loved TV series Power Rangers to the LOVEFiLM Instant streaming service.

The iconic Power Rangers franchise first aired on TV screens in 1993 and is currently celebrating its 20th anniversary. The new deal will enable LOVEFiLM members to view the very first episodes of Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers right through to the most recent Super Samurai season, which will be available to watch in HD.

The Saban Brands content deal, which will also make the live-action Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation available to stream, is the most recent in a series of new deals for LOVEFiLM. It builds on the already extensive collection of children’s content available to stream, including titles from the likes of Aardman, Marvel and DHX Media.

Chris Bird, Director, Film Strategy at LOVEFiLM, said:

“We already have a fantastic range of kids content on offer for our younger TV and film fans. Power Rangers – celebrating 20 years this year – has a huge global following and is popular across the generations. This deal with Saban Brands will bring the series to a whole new audience of children and will also ensure that grown-ups can catch up and reminisce on their favourite episodes instantly.”

Frederic Soulie, Vice President of Distribution at Saban Brands, said:

“We are delighted to partner with LOVEFiLM as we celebrate 20 years of Power Rangers this year.
Power Rangers continues to delight fans of all ages around the world. In the UK, kids and grown-ups alike will be able to enjoy past episodes, re-live some of the exciting entertainment, and watch the two most recent series’, Power Rangers Samurai and Super Samurai through LOVEFiLM Instant.”

LOVEFiLM Instant is available on PC, Mac or via Nintendo Wii and Wii U, Sony Playstation®3, Microsoft Xbox 360, Kindle Fire HD and Kindle Fire, Apple iPad® and a growing number of Internet-connected TV sets and Blu-ray players, giving members immediate access to a huge range of films and TV shows from as little as £4.99 a month.
