Oscilloscope Teams With Warner Brothers Digital Distribution

Oscilloscope Teams With Warner Brothers Digital Distribution

“We went out to breakfast with these cats,” Adam Yauch said in a statement regarding Oscilloscope Laboratories’s new deal with Warner Brothers Digital Distribution, “had a good time hanging out shooting the shit.. so I said – what the hell, they seem like they know what they’re doing. Let’s do this.”

And with that, Oscilloscope Laboratories has signed an exclusive distribution agreement with Warner Bros. Digital Distribution (WBDD) to bring Oscilloscope’s films to Video-On-Demand (VOD) and download-to-own across all platforms including cable, satellite, digital and wireless. Oscilloscope’s catalog will debut on these platforms at the conclusion of each film’s theatrical run and, with the appropriate films, day and date with theatrical.

Through this relationship, Oscilloscope said it will continue to have the flexibility to execute national theatrical campaigns for all of its films, yet “maximize these emerging distribution channels at optimal times, including offering its content day-and-date on VOD, and potentially in the future before its DVD street date.”

The agreement kicked off with Oscilloscope’s “Wendy and Lucy,” which was released May 5 on DVD and debuted day and date on VOD and digital platforms. It was carried by all major distributors including Comcast, Time Warner Cable, iTunes and Amazon Video On Demand.

This summer WBDD will work with O-Scope to release “The Garden,” “Scott Walker: 30 Century Man,” “Treeless Mountain,” “Frontrunners,” and “Dear Zachary: A Letter To a Son About His Father.”
