TELUS today announced a
long-term agreement with major Hollywood film studio Twentieth Century Fox to
offer Fox’s movies on the recently launched TELUS TV service. Blockbuster
Fox hits such as Fantastic 4, Kingdom of Heaven, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Robots, and
other classic Hollywood movies, will be offered on a video on demand basis to
TELUS TV customers.

“TELUS is an industry leader in providing innovative products and
services to its customers and Twentieth Century Fox is proud to be the first
major Hollywood studio to partner with TELUS on their launch of this new and
exciting home entertainment service,” said Jamie McCabe, senior vice
president, Pay per View and Video on Demand, Twentieth Century Fox Film

“Fox’s impressive line-up of current feature films and extensive library
of motion pictures is a core element of our new TELUS TV Video on Demand
product offering,” said Fred Di Blasio, vice-president, Consumer Product
Marketing, TELUS. “Our customers can count on a top notch selection of quality
movies from Fox and TELUS.”

The technology behind TELUS TV allows customers to watch the movies they
want, when they want, rather than wait for pre-designated start times. Movies
are accessed through a digital set-top box and a customer’s television. Just
like a DVD player or VCR, customers have complete control including the
ability to fast forward, rewind, pause or stop a movie, and can view it as
often as desired during a 24-hour period.
