MUMBAI: Multi Screen Media’s (MSM)
recently announced long term content
deal with NBCUniversal is for seven-
years. The deal will help MSM’s
English movie channel Pix become a
force to be reckoned with.
Speaking to Televisionpost.com, Pix/
AXN executive VP, business head of
English entertainment Saurabh Yagnik
said, “The deal is for seven years. We
have access to over 100 titles each

effective from January 2016. “We now
have output deals with SPE, MGM and
NBCUniversal,” he added.
While not commenting on rights value,
Yagnik noted that they have steadily
been going up. He, however, clarified
that this deal is only for movies,
which means that the content will air
only on Pix as AXN no longer airs

Universal’s upcoming as well as latest
movie releases such as ‘Fast & Furious
7’, ‘Jurassic World’, ‘Ted 2’, ‘Pitch
Perfect 2’ and Illumination
