Reuters release

Reuters announced today that it will distribute Hollywood.TV content and footage to their 700+ service users around the world.

Reuters will distribute Hollywood TV’s paparazzi-style footage of celebrities, serving a crucial role for entertainment programming needs and complementing the celebrity and entertainment coverage currently offered by Reuters. The deal further enhances the Reuters America service offering, available via Reuters newly launched unified content platform.

Hollywood.TV is the definitive source for compelling celebrity footage in Southern California and beyond. Their access into the daily lives of stars in Hollywood makes their video indispensable for entertainment and news programming. Hollywood.TV’s team of videographers get the images that will be tomorrow’s breaking news. Hollywood.TV content will become available through Reuters from March 4th.

This announcement follows Reuters agreement earlier this year with the Chinese broadcaster CCTV to distribute their content and scripted footage globally.
