ITV has struck what it says is a first-of-its-kind deal for James Bond movies with Amazon MGM Studios Distribution.

The deal will see 25 James Bond movies available to view on both linear and then for 30 days on streaming platform ITVX, and the pics will air multiple times a year.

ITV said the deal marks the first time the Bond movies have been available via an AVoD streaming platform in the UK.

Films that will be available from next month include Goldfinger, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service and Skyfall, along with documentaries Everything Or Nothing: The Untold Story of 007 and Being James Bond: The Daniel Craig Story.

“It doesn’t get any more iconic than James Bond and we are honoured to bring this fantastic catalogue of films to our viewers both on our linear channels and via catch-up on ITVX,” said Darren Nartey, Senior Acquisitions Manager for film and kids at ITV.

ITVX launched just more than a year ago and ITV said this morning that January was its record month. The network pointed to the success of Love Island: All Stars, FA Cup football and the smash hit post office drama, which it said has been streamed 22 million times.
