Magnolia Pictures, a leading indie entertainment studio and one of the early leaders in the VOD ecosystem, has partnered with Peacock for streaming distribution, the company’s announced Thursday. Effective immediately, curated film titles from Magnolia Pictures is available on the Comcast-owned platform.

They were at the forefront of the VOD marketplace, offering many of their films on VOD a month before theatrical release.
