Kids and family-targeted streaming service Shomi has made a deal with Corus Entertainment — the exclusive brand partner for Nickelodeon in Canada — that will bring over 700 episodes of 21 of the network’s series.
Six of these shows fall under an exclusive streaming agreement with Shomi: animated series Penguins of Madagascar, Rabbids Invasion, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Avatar: The Last Airbender and Bubble Guppies, and live-action sitcom Ricky, Dicky & Dawn.
“We’re parents and we hear firsthand from our own kids just how important it is to have their favorite TV shows and beloved characters on shomi,” says Marni Shulman, the head of content and programming at shomi. “Offering some of the number one kids’ shows out there, including favorites you can’t stream anywhere else, makes shomi the obvious and easy go-to when it’s TV time.”
