Sky, Lionsgate coordinate windows

'3:10 to Yuma,' 'War' released simultaneously

LONDON -- In the first U.K. deal of its kind, Sky Television and Lionsgate Films will release two movies -- Lionsgate's "3:10 to Yuma" and Jet Li starrer "War" -- simultaneously on premium movie channel Sky Movies and PPV service Sky Box Office.

The films' release later this month is intended to drive interest in Sky's movie packages. Sky Box Office will charge viewers 3.99 pounds ($7.92) to view the films, while customers paying extra for the Sky Movies channels can watch for free.
