DHX Media, the children’s content company from Canada, has licensed more than three-dozen kids’ series to Amazon Prime Video, the subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) service in India.
Thom Chapman, the territory manager at DHX Media, revealed: “This volume deal highlights the scale of our library, and our ability to deliver a wide-ranging slate of great kids’ shows to leading streaming platforms as they expand globally”.
Further, he said: “With Amazon Prime Video taking up our programming for the emerging SVOD market in India, we are boosting our international presence and underscoring our reputation as a trusted ‘go-to’ distributor of quality kids’ content”.
Among the large collection of titles acquired by Amazon, are the popular ‘Caillou’, ‘Inspector Gadget’ and ‘Strawberry Shortcake’, ‘Johnny Test’ and ‘Kid vs Kat’ among others. To recall, content from DHX Media is already available on Amazon Prime Video internationally. The company operates one of the largest networks of children’s content on YouTube.
