Moonbug, a global entertainment company that develops and distributes fun, values-based content for kids, announced a new partnership with Joyn, one of Germany’s leading streaming platforms and joint venture between ProSiebenSat.1 and Discovery. With the partnership, viewers will have access to some of the most popular kids’ content in the world through the Moonbug Kids channel, the first dedicated kids’ nonlinear channel to launch on the platform.
The channel will be available in mid-May. Joyn users can access Moonbug Kids on any device.
“We are excited to partner with this brilliant platform. We’re looking forward to developing this partnership and seeing how far we can take it. Launching Joyn’s first dedicated kids’ channel as well as bringing some of our exciting and hugely popular shows to Joyn is just the start,” said Nicolas Eglau, head of EMEA, Moonbug.
More than 500 episodes of Moonbug’s beloved shows — including Little Baby Bum, ARPO, Go Buster, My Magic Pet Morphle, Supa Strikas, KiiYii and Playtime with Twinkle — will be available for streaming, with additional content launching later in the year. The shows will be primarily available in German with some English episodes.
Katja Hofem CCMO and Managing Director, Joyn, said, “We are happy to welcome Moonbug on board. With this new content partnership we are able to add even more valuable kids formats to our platform. Especially in times like this it is of high importance to us to offer pre school entertainment for kids.”
