Following on the heels of a Strategic Partnership agreement signed in October 2015, BBC Worldwide has signed a new digital deal with Mango TV, a new media broadcaster in China.
The deal will see Mango TV subscribers have access to specially curated documentary and preschool content from the BBC. Prior to this deal, Mango TV had bought the exclusive rights to a series of premium sports-related documentaries including David Beckham For The Love of The Game in which David Beckham plays a football match on all seven continents of the globe and participates in his own star-studded UNICEF fundraising match at Old Trafford.
Kelvin Yau, GM of BBC Worldwide (Greater China), commented: “We are very pleased that our relationship with Mango TV has grown quickly since we signed our MOU in October 2015. Besides this deal, we are also deep in discussions with Mango TV to explore production and format opportunities particularly in iconic BBC documentaries, factual entertainment programmes, dramas and films targeting the Chinese and global market. We look forward to making more new exciting announcements in the next few months.”
