SBS renews CBS output deal

SBS has renewed its output deal with CBS Studios International, giving its stations in the Netherlands a raft of the Hollywood major’s TV current and upcoming TV series.

The ProSiebenSat.1-owned pan-regional broadcaster runs Net5, SBS 6 and Veronica in the Netherlands and these channels will get free-to-air rights to series including NCIS, Hawaii Five-0 and The Good Wife.

The channels will also get first shot at new series unveiled at this week’s LA Screenings, which include new Sherlock Holmes show Elementary and 1960s cop drama Vegas.

Rozan Hamaker, head of acquisitions SBS said, “This enables SBS to continue a partnership that has been successful for both parties. It also gives SBS first choice from future supply of new TV-series from CBS Studios International.”

Armando Nuñez, president, CBS Studios International said, “Matching our world class programming with strong broadcasters like SBS helps expand the global appeal of CBS shows and enhances our position as Europe’s top supplier of US content. “
