The show launched in the country on Tencent, iQiyi, and Youku in January, April and May 2017 respectively and in less than a year has hit over one billion combined video views across all three streaming platforms.
Harriet Newby-Hill, Global Brand Director – Children’s at BBC Worldwide, said: “We are enormously proud that Hey Duggee has reached such a milestone in China. The show continues to grow in popularity around the globe and with series three on the horizon we can’t wait to see what further successes 2018 holds.”
Kelvin Yau, General Manager for China, said, “Hey Duggee is one of the happiest shows on kids’ TV and children in China love it for its fun approach to learning, having a go and trying new things. This and the show’s inclusive nature, as well as playful nods to popular culture, has made it very appealing to parents too.”
