Canada’s DHX Media has signed seven more broadcast deals with international networks for the new Teletubbies series.
The news comes just a day after DHX Brands, the company’s brand management and consumer products arm, announced its partnership with Paragon Creative to create new themed attractions for Teletubbies and other popular properties.
New nets bringing the series’ total roster of international broadcasters to 23 are SRC (Canada), POP TV (Slovenia), TV3 (Ireland), HRT (Croatia), Medialaan (Belgium), MTG (Lithuania) and NRK (Norway, for Sami language).
Teletubbies is DHX Brands’ flagship property. To date, the company has signed more than 85 merch deals for the IP, 20 of which have been signed since May. Earlier this month, DHX Brands added 10 new UK Teletubbies licensees, and DHX partnered with Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing in June.
DHX Media’s rebooted version of Teletubbies debuted last November on CBeebies, and it launched in May on Family Jr. in Canada and on Nick Jr. in the US.
