TNT Loves 300 Spartans

Warner Bros. has found their buyer for 300. Though TNT has come out over nowhere in acquiring the film, the move does work out for us.

TNT to Take on 300

TNT acquired the cable rights for 300 for a whopping $17 million. TNT picked up the film after Warner. Bros pitched it to other networks. Why TNT? Well, they were willing to agree to a three-year license instead of the usual four or five-year. As part of the agreement, TNT will also open a window in their three-year term to allow Warner Bros. to sell the film to another network.

In exchange, Warner Bros. will allow TNT to air 300 on its video-on-demand platform for at least a few months during the three-year run. This would mean the ability for us to watch 300 on TV any time we wanted. Well, at least during the three-month window.

The only thing that sucks is censorship. TNT seems to think that they can edit out the gore without harming the film's 'integrity'. Since the film is all about the gore, it's like taking away the story.

Fortunately for us, we will be able to watch the film uncensored for 18 months on HBO before it transfers over to TNT.

Stay tuned for updates.
