Defy Media-owned humor site Break has signed a licensing agreement with Paramount Pictures to bring select feature films the studio’s library to its free streaming platform, Break Movies. Launched in January 2015, the ad-supported service is currently available on the web and iOS, Android, Xbox and Roku devices.
Break viewers will have access to a rotating list of 30 or more Paramount movies at a time, each of which will be available for at least 30 days. Titles will include catalog favorites such as “Top Gun,” “Total Recall,” “The Running Man” and “Bloodsport,” along with more recent theatrical releases such as the “Paranormal Activity” series, “The Devil Inside” and “Jeff, Who Lives at Home.”
The initial lineup of Paramount titles went live on Break Movies on Monday evening.
The deal will significantly expand the selection on Break Movies, which launched with 200 films from partner Lionsgate, including “Winter’s Bone,” “Swimming with Sharks,” “The Descent,” “Devil’s Double,” “Margin Call.” It also recently added a library of martial arts films from Crash Media.
