PRESS RELEASE - 3 DECEMBER 2019
Scanbox and Nenda pair up to make Near Cinema Movies available for Hotel Guests
Stockholm, Copenhagen 3 December 2019, Nenda and Scanbox have now entered a new agreement regarding the distribution rights for an outstanding portfolio of near cinema movies. With a goal to update the current TV infrastructure in hotels and introduce TV streaming for the hotel industry, Nenda will now be able to provide timeless Hollywood classics along with fresh near cinema releases. The content will be distributed via Nenda’s innovative streaming platform to hotels and care companies, thus providing direct competition to today’s linear TV experience.
– “The ‘hotel experience’ is a well-known expression used to describe high levels of comfort above those found in the average homes, yet the TV experience in hotels today is inferior to home viewing. The partnership with Scanbox is a part of our strategy to offer a ‘better than home’ TV experience in hotels across the Nordic region. Under our agreement with Scanbox, we are be able to offer fresh-out-of-cinema movies that are often not available until much later via subscription streaming services to consumers,” says Anders Hässel, CEO and Co-founder of Nenda.
The films from Scanbox will be made available on-demand and delivered with several language and subtitle options for the entire Nordic region. Being a completely cloud-based streaming service, Nenda gives its users the option to easily switch between different languages and subtitles within the app UI. This feature is of great value to the hotel industry due to their diverse international clientele.
– “We here at Scanbox are very excited to be working with Nenda because we are committed to providing better digital content to the B2B TV Market. Nenda’s streaming solution will help us succeed in that mission and that is why we look forward to releasing our content on their innovative platform,” says Torben Thorup Jørgensen.
Established in 1980, Scanbox Entertainment is one of the leading independent film distributors in Scandinavia, releasing approximately 30 theatrical titles annually, and a total of 40+ titles direct-to-DVD and VOD. The company’s line-up covers all genres, but primarily focusing on upmarket content and local productions. Scanbox has recently entered an exclusive output deal with Amazon Studios on the Scandinavian market, including titles both acquired and produced by Amazon, solidifying its placement on the Scandinavian market.
