BT is giving users of its TV-on-demand service, BT Vision, the chance to watch hundreds of new and classic films from Twentieth Century Fox.

Brand-new movies such as Dr Seuss' Horton Hears A Who and The Happening will be available alongside classics including The Beach, Die Hard and Ice Age from December 15 and will be available on a 'pay-per-view' basis.

The deal will give viewers access to roughly 600 films, although BT said this number would increase over time.

Marc Watson, director of content and business development at BT Retail, said: "We're delighted to reach agreement so that BT Vision customers can access films from one of Hollywood's best and most respected studios."
