September 17, 2019

VOD365, a provider of branded OTT TV channels via Freeview, YouView, Freesat, mobile and smart TV devices, has agreed a content deal with kids IP giant, Moonbug, for their Youtube programming brands to appear on its kids entertainment channel, Ketchup TV.

The agreement will see Moonbug titles including Gecko’s Garage, Morphle and Go Buster appearing on the AVoD channel. Ketchup has already been airing Moonbug’s hit series, Little Baby Bum since 2016.

The news follows VOD 365’s agreement for kids content from Endemol Shine last month and comeson the heels of a recent announcement by Moonbug regarding the addition of Supa Strika to its roster of IP.

Commenting on the deal, VOD365 Founder and CEO, Paul Coster, said: “We are extremely pleased to be partnering with Moonbug once again.  The new programmes are a welcome addition to the Ketchup family and already have a proven track record with several titles having built up impressive followings on YouTube. Little Baby Bum has already proved a huge hit on Ketchup TV and we look forward to introducing these brand new Moonbug titles to the Ketchup audience. ”

Co-founder and CEO of Moonbug, Renè Rechtman, added: “We are excited to be able to broaden our slate with VOD365. We know from our data that parents also want their kids to watch our shows on their loungeroom tv-sets and VOD365 have a number of great solutions to make this happen.”
