Has anyone heard of signal one they are releasing FOX titles in the UK Kiss of Death 1947 they say they deal with Fox so Disney allowing overseas releases? I think this deal with Mill Creek will be a big problem for Disney - just wait till releases come out and the big complaints are NO NEW transfers just a old transfer thrown on disc
The Signal One deal is unclear. They had a deal with Fox before the Disney sale went through. After the Disney sale went through, all of the pending Fox titles went on hold. The suggestion was that Signal One (or at least their then-new owners, Patriot Films) had to argue that their deal with Fox was still valid. Most of the Fox releases they've done in 2021 and 2022 have been ones that they have previously announced back in 2018. A couple of recent releases, like Next Stop, Greenwich Village and The Paper Chase, had not been previously announced, but they might've been already spoken for by Signal One.
So, it's unclear whether Signal One is still burning off titles that they'd previously licensed from Fox pre-Disney, or whether they have an actual new deal with Disney.
