DHX and Amazon Sign 13-Series SVOD Rights Deal
DHX Media has recently announced a new 13 series content deal with Amazon Prime Video, which currently serves as the largest ever deal between the two companies to date. The entire deal covers more than 200 countries and territories, along with 15 languages. The deal includes several of DHX Media’s massively popular animated kids’ series, such as Bob the Builder, Fireman Sam, Caillou, Johnny Test, Yo Gabba Gabba!, classic Inspector Gadget and In the Night Garden, for launch beginning this fall.
Amazon in the past few months has been on a roll with a number of announced agreements in the US for exclusive SVOD and AVOD rights to DHX Media’s Looped, as well as other high profile kids’ content deals in he UK, Germany, and India.
“Leading global SVOD services are forecast to collectively spend approximately USD$19 billion on content through 2018,” said Dana Landry, CEO of DHX Media. “This far-reaching agreement announced today with Amazon Prime Video reinforces DHX Media’s position as a ‘go-to’ provider of kids,’ multi-language content to this robust market.”
