On the heels of higher Q4 and full-year earnings, DHX Media has taken on 117 kids and family titles from indie distributor Echo Bridge Entertainment, plus distribution rights to an additional 34 titles, including successful teen drama Degrassi.

Spanning TV series, feature films and television specials, the deal brings Degrassi, Instant Star and The L.A. Complex in-house for international distribution, building on DHX’s purchase of Epitome Pictures in April. These three series alone account for approximately 600 half hours of content.

Additional titles covered include animated series Beast Wars: Transformers, stop-motion preschool show Lunar Jim and family-oriented live-actioner Emily of New Moon.

Having recently closed the acquisition of Family Channel and a trio of Disney channels that will operate under its new division DHX Television, the company continues to bolster its robust library of more than 10,000 half hours of content.
