DreamWorks Animation and Technicolor are the partners behind the joint venture that has reached agreements with NBCUniversal, Paramount Pictures, Sony, Twentieth Century Fox and Warner Bros.

Digital content service M-Go, a joint venture of DreamWorks Animation and Technicolor, has struck content deal with big Hollywood players.

The agreements announced Tuesday are with NBCUniversal, Paramount  Pictures, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, Twentieth Century Fox and Warner Bros. Digital Distribution.

Financial terms weren't disclosed.

"The deals will enable consumers to rent or purchase day & date new release films, catch-up television and back catalog film and TV shows," the company said.  

The M-Go service is scheduled to launch later this year and will be pre-loaded on Intel, Samsung and Vizio devices. It will also be available as a free service at www.mgo.com. M-­?Go will also offer UltraViolet compatibility.

"M?Go centralizes viewing in one easy place, bridging the divide between viewing platforms, content sources, delivery technologies and devices," the company said.  

John Batter, CEO of M?Go, said: "Partners choose us because of the value M-­?Go brings to the marketplace by providing massive amounts of quality film and TV content on the devices people already use."
