DHX Media has signed a considerable number of VOD and SVOD deals globally, underscoring its aim of exploiting digital opportunities for its library of programming on emerging platforms.
Josh Scherba, SVP Distribution at DHX Media said: “We are firmly committed to seeking opportunities with new platforms, and with a catalogue totalling over 8,500 half hours of programming, we are well positioned to supply digital networks with a significant volume of quality content.”
New partners include Tesco-owned blinkbox which has added to its offering for the UK and Ireland alongside a deal for the same regions with FUHU, which has added titles for NABI tablet users.
Dailymotion will provide France, Switzerland and Belgium with various titles and also in France and Belgium, viewers will now also be able to access a selection of DHX Media content via the Canal Play Infinity and Belgacom platforms respectively.
Elsewhere in Europe, a number of DHX Media shows will be on demand in Italy through Media Network, while in Slovakia VOD content will be provided by Voyo, in Greece and Cyprus by Riverdrop and in Turkey by D-Smart and TTNET. In Russia TVZOR has acquired a number of series in SVOD and AVOD deals.
The DHX Media library has also proved popular in the southern hemisphere where Wananchi has snapped up key titles for the East African market and Opticom for Argentina.
