DHX Media has licensed more than three dozen kids’ series to Amazon Prime Video’s recently launched SVOD service in India. The massive package deal includes evergreen cartoons like Caillou, Inspector Gadget and Strawberry Shortcake, as well as contemporary hits like Johnny Test and Kid vs. Kat.
“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,” said DHX Territory Manager Thom Chapman. “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.”
A vast variety of DHX Media offerings is already available through Amazon Prime Video in other key territories around the globe. Last year, Amazon licensed the company’s original series Looped exclusively for its members in the US, as well as adding library content to the national Prime Video catalog. Prime members in the UK and Germany have access to more than three dozen DHX kids’ series, including Teletubbies, Messy Goes to Okido and Hank Zipzer.
