Sky signs second Hollywood deal


The pay-TV giant BSkyB has signed its second big premium movie rights deal with a "Big Six" Hollywood film studio – beating off competition from online rivals such as Net Flix and LoveFilm.

Sky's exclusive agreement with NBC Universal follows a similar deal with Warner Bros.

Sky viewers will get access to not only NBC Universal's movies, such as Jurassic Park, but also its TV channels such as E! Entertainment.
