The Jim Henson Company’s Dinosaur Train Series to Air on Disney Channel Germany


The Jim Henson Company's Dinosaur Train Series to Air on Disney Channel Germany

Germany’s pay-TV Disney Channel will be transitioning into a free to air channel on January 1, 2014, with the 24-hour family channel taking over the transmission slots that are currently occupied by entertainment Das Vierte, which Disney has acquired last autumn 2012.

The Disney Channel’s all-new programming schedule will also include the Emmy-nominated live-action/animated series from The Jim Henson Company, Dinosaur Train, where kids aged three to six are taught how to apply scientific thinking as they discover all new types of dinosaur species, and compare and contrast dinosaurs to today’s creatures and embrace the living sciences of paleontology and natural science.

“DINOSAUR TRAIN was first introduced to German audiences through Disney’s pay-TV service Disney Junior, and we are eager to make the transition to free-to-air broadcast in association with Disney Channel,” said Goldsmith. “We see this as a wonderful opportunity for DINOSAUR TRAIN to be enjoyed by even more children throughout Germany.”

“The wide range of programming content on our new free-to-air Disney Channel will address children and families, as well as adult, predominantly female prime time viewers,’ explained Disney Channels Germany, Switzerland and Australia GM Lars Wagner. “DINOSAUR TRAIN is immensely popular with our youngest viewers so we were very happy that The Jim Henson Company was on board with the transition of the series to our free-to-air channel. It’s a great way to maintain continuity and do something new at the same time.”
