VOD365 strikes Endemol Shine deal
UK-based OTT firm VOD365 and production giant Endemol Shine Group have struck a content deal that will see the latter provide shows for two of VOD365’s channels.
Under the deal, Endemol will provide more than 300 hours of programming for VOD365’s kids’ channel Ketchup TV and documentary net Planet Knowledge.
The partnership will see premium series across genres such as nature, science, history, crime, factual and culture debut on Planet Knowledge. Shows including Inside Man, Declassified and Death Row Stories are set to appear later this year.
Meanwhile, children’s classic Bananas in Pyjamas and new animated series PC Bob will launch on Ketchup TV. PC Bob is produced in-house by Endemol and launched earlier this year on YouTube.
VOD365 founder and CEO Paul Coster said: “As well as being the largest content deal we have agreed to date for Planet Knowledge, with 300 hours of quality programming added to the channel, this partnership also represents the industry’s greater focus on AVoD platforms and new distribution models.”
VOD365’s channels are available in the UK on Freeview, YouView, Freesat and mobile and smart devices.
