Further strengthening their presence in the digital space, kids and family entertainment major Toonz Media Group is partnering with leading digital content distribution platform OTTera to provide the technology support for the Group’s brand-new OTT platform.
As part of the new partnership, OTTera will host and provide the technology support for Toonz Media Group’s OTT channel, as well as distribute the Toonz library across multiple Video on Demand (VoD) platforms. While the vast library will enrich the content catalogue of OTTera, the group will benefit from OTTera’s advertisement sourcing and service expertise with this partnership.
“This is the first time that Toonz is venturing into the space of white-labelled OTTs and it is crucial for us to have a very strong technology partner in this venture. I am really glad to say that we have found our ideal partner in OTTera. Not only are they one of the best and most competitive over-the-top technology service providers in the market today, they also have phenomenal reach with content distribution,” said P. Jayakumar, CEO of Toonz Media Group.
“We are so pleased to add Toonz Media Group’s quality kids content to our growing list of OTT services. Our shared experience in the children’s entertainment space, paired with their popular IP’s, will certainly make the Toonz channel launch a global success,” said Stephen L. Hodge, co CEO of OTTera, Inc.
The new OTT platform being launched will include around 1500+ half hours of movies and episodic content across different genres, dedicated to the kids and family audience. It is will be a one-of-its kind platform that showcases Toonz’s world-class IPs as well as our licensed titles.
