Montreal, Canada-based Quebecor Content and Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN) have renewed their partnership through a deal brokered by VIMN’s Canadian agent, Corus Entertainment. What it means is that more Nickelodeon content will be made available on Quebecor’s kids and youth offerings, Yoopa and Club illico.
Beginning next year, Club illico will have more than 750 episodes of shows from the VIMN catalog on hand, including 100 Things To Do Before High School, Back at the Barnyard, Bella and the Bulldogs, Every Witch Way, Henry Danger, Loud House (pictured), Ni Hao, Kai-Lan and Pig Goat Banana Cricket. Classic series like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Dora the Explorer, Go Diego Go, Kung Fu Panda, Penguins of Madagascar, SpongeBob SquarePants and Victorious will also be offered as part of the agreement.
Preschool-targeted Yoopa began broadcasting Nick Jr. series Fresh Beat Band of Spies in the fall.
VIMN is one of the largest producers and distributors of youth content. Its brands are popular in more than 160 countries around the globe.
The agreement marks further growth for Quebecor, which earlier this year announced a deal with DHX Media for kids and youth programming for its Sélection illico and Club illico platforms, as well as for its Yoopa channel.
