Moonbug Entertainment, the global digital media company, is partnering with Virgin Media to expand its children’s programming in the UK. Ten new shows will air on Virgin Media’s TV platform starting in mid-October.
The programmes set to air include Blippi, Little Baby Bum, Playtime with Twinkle, Go Buster, Toddler Fun Learning, Digley and Dazey, Dr Poppy, Supa Strikas, My Magic Pet Morphle and Gecko’s Garage.
“We couldn’t be more delighted to enter this strategic partnership with Virgin Media, one of the leading platforms in the UK,” said Nicolas Eglau, Head of EMEA & APAC at Moonbug. “Brands like Blippi and Morphle have become household names in the UK and by bringing them to Virgin Media customers, even more families will have the opportunity to enjoy these blockbuster titles. We look forward to working with Virgin Media on bringing more Moonbug shows to their viewers in the future.”
“We’re constantly looking for ways to expand our kids offer and we’re very pleased to add Moonbug’s impressive range of popular children’s characters for our customers,” said David Bouchier, Chief Digital Entertainment Officer at Virgin Media. “Not only will families gain access to more than ten new franchises, but they’ll have exclusive access to new episodes of Blippi before anyone else, from November 2nd.”
