Germany’s Fix&Foxi arrive on Africell
German children’s and youth entertainment company Your Family Entertainment (YFE) has agreed a deal to add its family channel Fix&Foxi to African mobile network operator Africell’s new mobile TV service.
Also called Africell, the service has been piloted in Gambia and will soon launch in Sierra Leone and the Democratic Republic of Congo. It features a variety of channels, covering a wide range of topics from movies and documentaries to music and learning programmes.
The Fix&Foxi channel broadcasts children’s content, both animated and live action, from the YFE catalogue. It is named after well-known German comic characters and delivers child-safe, entertaining and educational content to children of all ages and their families.
Armin Schnell, executive VP of sales at YFE, said: “We are proud to partner with a renowned company like Africell and to continue expanding the Fix&Foxi channel into new territories. We are looking forward to bringing our high-quality and learning-based content to new viewers in Africa.”
Nadia Moati, Africell operations director, added: “We are always looking for ways to bring more and better content to our subscribers. Adding the Fix&Foxi channel to our mobile TV platform is a natural choice because it raises the overall quality of the platform and will give millions of children the opportunity to enjoy fun, imaginative and educational programming.”
