DHX Media and Amazon Prime Video have signed a deal that will make more than three-dozen DHX kids shows available to subscribers of the SVOD in the UK and Germany.

Amazon Prime Video in the UK has licensed several titles, including seasons one of  Looped, Teletubbies and Messy Goes to Okido , along with seasons one and two of Hank Zipzer, season three of In the Night Garden and seasons four and five of Caillou.

In Germany, the SVOD service has licensed a first-run exclusive of Messy Goes to Okido, season one of Teletubbies and Slugterra , seasons one and two of Hank Zipzer, and season five of Fireman Sam.

In July, DHX signed an exclusive deal with Amazon in the US for Looped, as well as additional deals for The Busy World of Richard Scarry and Madeline.

The deals underscore a continued effort to ramp up SVOD distribution on the part of DHX, which reported strong annual growth from new digital and linear distribution deals, as well as solid advertising and VOD revenues from digital platforms like Amazon, in its Q3 earnings this year.
