CraveTV gets exclusive rights to the film, which follows the legendary rock band 2016 tour through 10 Latin American cities including their historic gig in the Cuban capital, Havana.

“Bringing exclusive premium content to our subscribers is our number-one goal,” said Mike Cosentino, senior VP, CTV and Specialty, Bell Media. “The Rolling Stones are the world’s greatest rock-and-roll band and we are thrilled for this deal and to make CraveTV and our Music Collection the exclusive home for these historic films.”

“Paul Dugdale and JA Digital have produced with us and The Rolling Stones a fine film and we are very happy that Bell Media will be our broadcast partners for Canada.”
