Florida-based ION Media’s 24/7 over-the-air kidsnet Qubo has scooped up eight series from DHX, Nelvana, Portfolio Entertainment and Splash Entertainment.
From DHX, the network picked up seasons one to three of Madeline (pictured), two seasons of Monster Math Squad, three seasons of The Adventures of Paddington Bear and two seasons of Pirates: Adventures in Art.
Splash Entertainment sealed deals with the network for one season each of Cosmic Quantum Ray and The Davincibles. Nelvana signed a deal for three seasons Miss Spider’s Sunny Patch Friends and Portfolio rounded off the new slate with one season of Bubu and the Little Owls.
Qubo has also ordered more seasons from Legacy Distributions’ Funniest Pets & People, Mickey’s Farm and The Choo Choo Bob Show, as well as Nelvana’s Rescue Heroes and Splash Entertainment’s Dive Olly Dive and ToddWorld.
ION Television launched a Qubo kids programming block entitled Qubo Kids Corner back in 2014. The three-hour programming block runs from Friday to Sunday with back-to-back kids series, including Dive Olly Dive from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
