ducktv, the edutainment children’s offering operated by Mega Max Media, has signed a partnership agreement with Digital Virgo for distribution of the linear channel on its networks in Africa and the Middle East.
The channel has been launched through Molotov’s OTT service deployed by Digital Virgo in Senegal, Cameroon, Burkina Faso and Ivory Coast and on Streaming illimite in Bahrain, Egypt, Oman, UAE, Kuwait and Iraq.
