MGM rumoured to be discussing sale of No Time to Die streaming rights

The latest developments in the long running saga of No Time to Die suggest MGM is looking to cash in on the streaming rights.

Until recently it was believed that MGM was under pressure to find a buyer to capitalise on the delay in releasing No Time to Die. The film has had a troubled history almost from the start but even after completion the Covid-19 pandemic has ensured that fans must wait.

Now there are persistent rumours that MGM is talking to Apple and Netflix with the aim of selling the latest Bond to stream in North America. The film is due to be released in the rest of the world by Universal, so presumably any successful deal would force their hand.

While many are doubting the rumours, there does appear to be substance to them.  But since it is also understood that Eon Productions oppose a streaming release it is not clear if they could prevent MGM from doing it.

MI6 HQ have done a comprehensive write up of the situation. If you want to get into the nitty gritty then head over there.
