BBC Worldwide has signed a global five-year partnership with Getty Images in which Getty Images will represent BBC Motion Gallery, BBC Worldwide’s prestigious video clip sales business. The agreement will see the world-renowned BBC Motion Gallery brand continue with Getty Images as the exclusive global distributor.
BBC Worldwide customers will be able to access Motion Gallery services through Getty Images’ websites. They can expect the same quality service, but with the key difference being a stronger and wider sales offering, enabling customers to access content online from anywhere in the world 24 hours a day. There are no changes to the service for those customers acquiring content from Education, Sports Events & Live Programming as BBC Worldwide retains these sectors.
The BBC Motion Gallery collection will be available on the Getty Images website from 1 January 2014.
