Springville, Utah-based DigEcor has inked a deal with Taffy Entertainment to put its series on the digEplayer in-flight portable entertainment system. DigEcor CEO Brent Wood says the agreement is just the beginning of DigEcor’s initiative to add more kids content to the players that are available for rent while traveling on more than 25 different airline and train companies.
Pet Alien, ToddWorld and Jakers! The Adventures of Piggley Winks are available on Alaska Airlines and Amtrak digEplayers in the U.S. Although the electronics company also has licensing agreements with Warner Bros. and Disney for kids content, Taffy is the first to license TV series for the service.
DigEcor’s new digEplayer XT plays videos and games and will start appearing on airlines this fall. Wood says he is now in discussions with various game companies to get kids interactive offerings on the player. In fact, he’s now seeking kids content from all platforms including film, TV and audio.
