International content producer Blue Ant Media has expanded its global presence with three new family and kid-friendly linear channels on The Roku Channel. The new channels are Love Nature and Love Nature Espanol – an award-winning nature and wildlife brand, and ZooMoo, a channel dedicated to animal programming for kids.
“Blue Ant Media’s partnership with Roku is an important step in our AVOD expansion in the U.S. market because it allows us to introduce our suite of premium brands to one of the largest and most engaged streaming audiences in the world,” said Ward Platt, CEO, Kids & Global Networks, Blue Ant Media. “Audiences can expect an award-winning lineup of nature and kids programming, which is now in high demand as parents seek out shows they can trust for their children during these unprecedented times.”
This new deal expands Roku’s free live/linear channel lineup to more than 100. These come at the same time as Roku’s new channel guide that’s easier for users to navigate. Roku now reaches an estimated 36 million people.
