US TV network Showtime has announced it has acquired the rights to air the 1987 Prince concert film ‘Sign O The Times’, which was originally put out alongside the album of the same name.

The film, featuring footage from shows in the Netherlands and Belgium and performances at Prince’s Paisley Park Studios, enjoyed most success via its video release. Although it has subsequently been released on DVD in some markets, in the US it hasn’t been officially available since a 1991 reissue on VHS.

Showtime plans to start airing the film from 16 Sep. It’s not known if there are plans to do similar deals with telly services elsewhere in the world.
