ZooMoo launches on DStv
Interactive children’s nature broadcaster ZooMoo has today launched on African pay TV operator DStv.
The channel, which is aiming to expand its reach in Africa, provides over 450 hours of children’s and preschool content focusing on nature, conservation and education.
It will be available in English via DStv’s Premium, Compact Plus and Compact packages across Africa.
Content includes live-action series Kooki’s Crafty Show, which empowers young children to unleash their creativity through crafting; Lost, a puppet-based series that follows a wildlife photographer who takes viewers on a global adventure; and Jelly Jamm, which celebrates music, fun and friendship.
Ward Platt, CEO of kids and global networks at ZooMoo owner Blue Ant Media, said: “Our partnership with DStv is a significant milestone for the ZooMoo brand as it brings our beloved children’s programming to a new and engaged audience across sub-Saharan Africa.
“Children and parents can expect content that offers spectacular wildlife footage with puppetry, animations and narration, which will surely delight children of all ages and parents who seek programming they can trust.”
Hassan Saleh, MultiChoice Uganda MD, added: “We are excited to add more content for our younger audiences on our platform and this partnership with Kids & Global Network demonstrates our commitment to providing engaging and educational content for all our viewers.
“Educational children’s content is an important part of learning and development and this channel brings just that.”
