IT’S MORPHIN’ TIME
LOVEFiLM, an Amazon company, has today announced a content deal with Saban Brands which brings 20 years’ worth of episodes of the much-loved TV series Power Rangers to the LOVEFiLM Instant streaming service.
The iconic Power Rangers franchise first aired on TV screens in 1993 and is currently celebrating its 20th anniversary. The new deal will enable LOVEFiLM members to view the very first episodes of Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers right through to the most recent Super Samurai season, which will be available to watch in HD.
The Saban Brands content deal, which will also make the live-action Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation available to stream, is the most recent in a series of new deals for LOVEFiLM. It builds on the already extensive collection of children’s content available to stream, including titles from the likes of Aardman, Marvel and DHX Media.
