ITV reclaim James Bond rights

James Bond films will once again air on ITV after the channel reclaimed the rights to the franchise.

The deal with MGM will see the entire 007 film back catalogue being made available throughout it’s various channels and on-demand.

Sky Movies has had the rights to the franchise since April last year, but this multi-year agreement will return the franchise, including Skyfall, back to ITV.

ITV’s Director of Digital Channels and Acquisitions Angela Jain said in a statement: “Skyfall is the highest-grossing film of all time at the UK box office and proves not only the enduring popularity of the Bond franchise but also its iconic status.

“I am delighted we have the entire Bond library of films on Britain’s biggest commercial channel, a fantastic treat for all viewers.”

Skyfall will premiere on ITV in 2014.
