The Digital Entertainment Group: Nordic Committee (DEGN) has today announced the return of Mega Movie Week, a cross-category campaign with a core objective to increase consumer awareness and engagement with digital movie purchases.
Building on the success of the first two Mega Movie Week campaigns in 2020, this third outing sees the promotion extended to run for the first time across ten days, from Friday, October 13th, through two weekends to Sunday, October 22nd, offering consumers great deals for a limited time only across a fantastic range of titles.
For the latest Mega Movie Week, participating DEGN members include NBCUniversal, Nordisk Film, Paramount Pictures, SF Studios, Sony Pictures and Warner Bros. Discovery, with offers being hosted across retailers including the Apple TV app, Viaplay, SF Anytime, Rakuten TV, Blockbuster (DK Only), Amazon Prime Video (SE Only), Altibox (NO Only), TV2 (NO Only), Telia Play (NO Only) and Elisa Viihde (FI Only).
An evolution of previous Mega Movie Week campaigns, this promotion aims to drive digital transaction by rewarding already engaged audiences to grow their collection and watch their favourite movies again and again and to attract new customers through these limited-time prices.
A multi-territory media campaign will support the promotion, focusing on converting digitally savvy movie lovers and driving maximum reach and awareness of the offer message. This includes rich format YouTube adverts, Google search and display banners, plus broad social media placements across Meta and Snapchat. Media will also have a local flavour with a partnership with Sweden’s largest online newspaper, Aftonbladet and coverage across major film websites, including Kino.dk, Filmweb.no and Episodi.fi, among others. Best-in-class retailer support will further boost coverage by highlighting the promotion directly to consumers when they are in the mood for a movie.
With prices starting from 39Kr / €3.99
