Spanish studio BRB Internacional has forged a partnership with French house Moonscoop to manage all video-on-demand and direct electronic sales’ rights of all of Moonscoop’s animated content in the Iberian peninsula, Spanish-speaking territories around the world and the Community of Independent States. The deal will include the Web, Smart TVs and Smartphones: including YouTube and on BRBplay.com, the company’s multi-platform website. Moonscoop will also distribute the same right for BRB Internacional’s entire cartoon catalog in France and other French-speaking territories.
This new synergy is expected to provide significant added value to the final offer of animated content as the partnership will feature a wide range of global toons such as Code Lyoko and Titeuf –from Moonscoop– with Bernard and David, the Gnome –from BRB.
“BRB continues its commitment to promote new way to watch television, as is the case with video-streaming, and we’re very happy to have Moonscoop as a partner,” said Marijo Arnáiz, director of digital media at BRB Internacional. “Likewise, this is yet another step in strengthening our position as a cartoon aggregator on YouTube through the management of Moonscoop’s channel on that platform.”
Lionel Marty, President of Distribution, CP, New Media at Moonscoop added, “BRB and Moonscoop share the same view and strategy regarding the New Media opportunities making this partnership very organic. We are very pleased to welcome Bernard and his friends from BRB’s library to our Bangoo branded French VOD stores on IPTV, mobile, Smart TV, iTtunes and the web.”
