Ameba, the Winnipeg-based IPTV system for kids entertainment, has signed with Barcelona-based Sol 90 to distribute GREAT CIVILIZATIONS, a Spanish-language animated series on AmebaTV.com.
"This is an ideal destination for foreign-language content, and for producers and content holders to gain entrance into the North American market," said Ameba President Tony Havelka. "The market is eager for foreign-language entertainment and we are excited to have Sol 90's contribution to this important programming category in our developing library. This underscores our mission to offer a wide range of programming in a variety of languages."
A portal designed to deliver children's entertainment directly to television viewers via the Internet, AmebaTV.com will offer the 260-minute animated GREAT CIVILIZATIONS in a variety of program lengths from interstitials to full episodes, all available for quick download and instant viewing. Targeting 8-12 year olds, GREAT CIVILIZATIONS was created to inspire children to learn more about the great civilizations of man.
Ameba is coming to MIPCOM for the first time to introduce the AmebaTV.com to distributors and content holders who are seeking new delivery and revenue models for their properties.
