It's not always about Oscar-winning movies and critically acclaimed TV shows, is it? Sometimes, all you want to do is settle back and watch Man v. Food. LoveFilm today announced a brand new deal that will see users gain access to shows from the Food Network as well as the Travel Channel. The deal with Scripps Networks Interactive is actually LoveFilm's first in the cooking and lifestyle genre.
"We're delighted to announce this latest deal with Scripps Networks Interactive, which brings something very different and exciting to our members," said Simon Morris, Chief Marketing Officer at Amazon-owned LoveFilm. "There is no doubt that we are a nation of foodies, and it's great that this deal will enable us to meet increasing viewer demands for this particular type of content."
LoveFilm users will be able to stream shows featuring Britain's own Andy 'Pie Man Bates' and chef Reza Mahammad, as well as the Barefoot Contessa, Man v. Food Nation, Restaurant: Impossible, House Hunters International and Bizarre Foods.
As regards the movies, are you counting LoveFilm Instant in this? The very reason I cancelled was the lack of anything particularly noteworthy in that respective department. The TV shows are certainly better, though.
