Sky and WarnerMedia, the home of HBO, Turner and Warner, have expanded their longstanding partnership to include new programming and co-productions.

The agreement covers Sky’s European markets, meaning content from HBO and Warner Bros, as well as from Turner channels, will have a home on the Sky and NOW TV platforms for years to come. Included is on-demand content from the Cartoon Network and Boomerang brands.

Sky Studios will also work with WarnerMedia’s HBO Max programming team to produce drama and scripted entertainment for Sky and HBO customers across Europe as part of a multi-year co-production deal.

The development follows on from the launch of Sky Studios, the new creative home of Sky originals, launched with a commitment to more than double Sky’s investment in original content over the next five years.

Sky and HBO first agreed to an output deal in 2010. The partnership has brought HBO productions such as Watchmen, Succession and Big Little Lies, alongside Sky original productions Patrick Melrose, Babylon Berlin and Gomorrah, to Sky’s flagship Sky Atlantic channel.

The new expanded deal also extends the pay TV rights for Warner first-run feature films.

In addition, the duo have agreed to extend their co-production partnership. Chernobyl picked up 10 wins at last month’s Emmy Awards making it the most-awarded British series this year. Sky and HBO’s latest co-production is Catherine the Great starring Helen Mirren.

“Our partnership with HBO, and now Warner Media, has never been stronger as Sky continues to thrive as Europe’s leading direct-to-consumer media and entertainment business,” says Gary Davey, CEO Sky Studios. “Customers love our Sky original productions and together, Sky Studios and HBO Max will bring them more unique stories that you can’t find anywhere else.”
