Genius Brands International licensed a host of new programming, including Peppa Pig, My Little Pony, PJ Masks, and more as it continues to expand its library of kids and family content. The free Kartoon Channel! now boasts more than 5,000 episodes that are available for families to stream.
“Our goal remains to build out Kartoon Channel! to be the most successful destination of hit kids programming anywhere. And unlike other streaming services, Kartoon Channel! is free,” says Jon Ollwerther, president of Kartoon Channel!, and executive vice president of business development at Genius Brands. “This latest acquisition of programming from our content partners, including eOne — Hasbro’s global entertainment studio — Zodiac Kids, and ABC Australia, represents the caliber of hit content we will continue offering to our growing audience.”
The deal includes rights to stream a trio of My Little Pony specials, plus Ricky Zoom, Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom, and PJ Masks shorts and music videos. Additional content includes Wiggles World and Horrible Henry.
Kartoon Channel! is available as an app for iOS and Android and can be found on over-the-top (OTT) platforms such as Roku.
