Splash Entertainment’s video-on-demand kids platform Kabillion and its girl-centric subsidiary network Kabillion Girls Rule have been picked up by US cable operator Mediacom Communications for its VOD service.

The deal allows Kabillion’s kids content for six- to 12-year-olds, including hit shows Dream Defenders (pictured), My Little Pony, SpacePOP and Sonic X, to reach Mediacom’s nearly 1.4 million subscribers across markets primarily in the Midwest and Southeast.

Ranked among the top-10 free on-demand kidsnets in the US, independently-owned, ad-supported Kabillion currently reaches more than 60 million US households and is available on outlets including Comcast, Time Warner and Charter.

Mediacom is the fifth-largest US cable operator, offering a mix of information, communications and entertainment services to households and businesses, including video, high-speed data, phone, and home security and automation.

The deal follows Kabillion’s new partnership with digital producer Metamedia Entertainment that will see the companies launch a new SVOD mobile app service for tweens called K-GO. Led by Metamedia co-founder and ex-Disney Interactive exec David Moon, the app will provide Kabillion’s kids content, as well as augmented reality, virtual reality, 360-degree video, social video and gaming content.
