Cannes, France -- Sky Deutschland and Studio 100 Media extend and enhance their partnership. Sky viewers can continue to enjoy a broad selection of children’s programs including the remakes of the classic series Maya the Bee and Vic The Viking which continue to excite young viewers with their new computer animated look, as well as others such as Mia and Me, My Little Pony – Friendship is Magical, Bibi Blocksberg and films and series based on the Astrid Lindgren books.
The newly sealed agreement also includes the comprehensive expansion of non-linear rights. This enables accessibility to a larger selection of Junior programs such as Vic The Viking, Maya The Bee and Woodlies available through the Sky on demand services Sky Go and Sky Anytime, as well as via Snap by Sky in Germany and Austria.
Constanze Gilles, Director of Partner Channels at Sky Deutschland said, “Children’s programs are an important part of the Sky brand, they delight the whole family and Junior stands for wonderful children’s entertainment with both classics as well as with new CGI-series such as Maya The Bee. We look forward to exclusively presenting ‘Junior’ content both through linear and on demand services on Sky.”
“Our collaboration with Sky remains a trusting, successful partnership and we are very pleased to extend this cooperation again. Next year, ‘Junior’ will have already been broadcasting for 20 years on German Pay TV on Air, showing best entertainment for the whole family, including the classics, live action formats and now additionally CGI productions. ‘Junior’ has since become part of the Sky broadcasting family and is now also on Sky Anytime, as well as Sky Go and Snap by Sky.”
