Taffy Ent. today launched Kabillion, its new ad-supported, multi-platform kids’ programming service that is available as a broadband website (www.Kabillion.com), as well as a video on-demand channel. Developed in conjunction with New Jersey-based REMIX Entertainment Ventures, the service offers a mix of animated and live-action shows available in a variety of languages. The VOD platform is now available to digital cable subscribers nationwide on Comcast Cable systems, with additional systems expected to be added in the near future.
The initial Kabillion lineup includes the Taffy-distributed series Pet Alien, produced by Mike Young Prods., and Mix Master: King of Cards, a fairly new anime series based on the trading card game craze. In addition, a comedic, live-action preview show titled Kabla will inform young viewers of available programming and other content choices.
‘Kabillion will transform how kids experience media, allowing them to engage in a more interactive and dynamic way, across a range of platforms,’ says Taffy Ent. CEO Bill Schultz. ‘Taffy Entertainment will supply first-class, award-winning programming through its global production pipelines at both Moonscoop and Mike Young Productions. Key acquisitions will also play an important role and we anticipate some important announcements to that effect very soon.’
Taffy’s library of more than 3,000 half hours of animation includes the Emmy Award-winning CG kids’ show Jakers! The Adventures of Piggley Winks, as well as such other hit series as ToddWorld, Titeuf, Growing Up Creepie, Fantastic Four, Code Lyoko and Casper. The company also distributes to broadcasters in 160 countries around the world.
