Playtech Signs Branded Content Deal with AMC Networks

Playtech (LON: PTEC), one of the leading gambling tech companies, has announced a new deal with AMC Networks (NASDAQ: AMCX) that gives the developer exclusive global rights to a number of AMC and WE tv branded titles, such as The Walking Dead, Bridezillas, and the Marriage Boot Camp. It means that Playtech is now able to develop and distribute games based upon the series, and the first of these are expected to be released later this year.

Playtech believes that the deal will significantly help a key pillar of its branded content strategy, which is to deliver the highest quality, entertainment-led content to operators.

The games are likely to be a huge success. The Walking Dead television franchise is popular across the globe and has been drawing in millions of viewers for more than a decade. It is the most watched television show in US cable history, and its final season is due to begin airing in August this year.
