London-based digital distribution and content management company MoMedia has signed on four new digital-first IP brands in the kids’ entertainment category. Added to the company’s local and worldwide transactional EST and SVOD roster — which already includes Outfit7’s Talking Tom and Friends and Zinkia’s Pocoyo — are Indian YouTube brand ChuChu TV, Hooplakidz Network!, language-education platform Badanamu and Brazilian music project Lottie Dottie Chicken (Galinha Pintadinha).
ChuChu TV claims to be the third-most watched YouTube channel brand in India, with 5.7 million subscribers and over 5.8 billion video views. YoBoHo, now part of Vancouver-based Broadband TV (BBTV), specializes in creating original digital children’s content for its Hooplakidz Network!, which consists of 30-plus channels and characters tailored to children of all ages and stages. Yoboho’s content reaches more than 3 billion views per year, of which Hooplakidz represents 2 billion.
Korean outfit Calm Island’s Badanamu is an integrated digital and physical platform built solely for educational use. Its assets include 200 unique educational videos, 200 storybooks with full interactive apps, 150-plus learning games, IQ and level testing, and multiple intelligence learning algorithms. Brazilian app creator and developer Zeroum has signed with MoMedia for the distribution of the Brazilian music-video phenomenon, Lottie Dottie Chicken, which is now one of YouTube’s top 20 children’s brands.
In separate SVOD/EST deals, MoMedia has also signed up BAFTA-winning CBBC series Operation Ouch (44 x 26 mins) from Genevieve Dexter’s Serious Lunch, produced by All3Media prodco Maverick Television; and Creative Media Partners’ (‘CMP) first title, HD CG animated comedy Sindbad & The 7 Galaxies (26 x 11 mins). Both shows will now be distributed via MoMedia to digital platforms including iTunes and Google.
