A selection of Disney kids and family content will hit airwaves in the Middle East and North Africa following a new free TV deal with Al Jazeera Children’s Channel (JCC).
This past November, JCC inked its largest-ever programming deal with BBC Worldwide for more than180 hours of content, which includes animated and live-action kids’ series. The company has now acquired the rights to some of Disney’s most popular content, including Disney and Disney/Pixar movies as well as Disney Channels’ live-action and animated series.
Among the shows set to air are Phineas and Ferb, Kim Possible, Lilo and Stitch, and Zeke and Luther. Baraem TV, JCC’s preschool channel, will feature titles like Handy Manny, Little Einsteins and Jojo’s Circus. Animated films include A Bug’s Life, Toy Story, Cars and Tangled.
All programs will be dubbed into Arabic and will roll out in the coming months.
