ZooMoo significantly expands reach in Africa

ZooMoo, an interactive, children’s nature broadcaster, is significantly expanding its reach in Africa with its launch on DStv, the continent’s largest video entertainment platform.

DStv audiences will be able to access the channel's extensive 450+ hours of children's content which focuses on nature, conservation and education. The channel is launching on 1 October 2020 at 10:00 CAT and will be available to DStv customers in English on DStv Premium, Compact Plus and Compact packages in the rest of Africa until March 2021.

"Our partnership with DStv is a significant milestone for the ZooMoo brand as it brings our beloved children’s programming to a new and engaged audience across sub-Saharan Africa,” said Ward Platt, CEO, Kids & Global Networks, Blue Ant Media. “Children and parents can expect content that offers spectacular wildlife footage with puppetry, animations and narration, which will surely delight children of all ages and parents who seek the programming they can trust.”

ZooMoo's line-up includes the live-action preschool series, Kooki’s Crafty Show hosted by a cheeky and playful red panda named Kooki, who empowers young children to unleash their creativity through crafting. Lost! is a live-action, puppet-based series that follows Flash, a wildlife photographer with little sense of direction and a taste for adventure who takes viewers on global adventures that include a touch of mishap and a lot of help from his friends. 

Jelly Jamm celebrates music, fun and friendship through the story of Bello and his four friends who live on the magical Planet Jammbo where all the music in the universe originates from. Kiko is the story of a fish-boy living in an underwater valley where he and his friends navigate through adventures and solve problems with courage and friendship. Leo the Wildlife Ranger follows junior rangers Leo and his little sister, Katie, as they have fun adventures with exotic animals all over the world. Along the way, this show teaches young viewers fun animal facts and information on important issues like conservation and climate change.

ZooMoo Networks is an interactive, children’s nature broadcaster with television channels available in over 135 territories. ZooMoo Networks is a joint venture with DirectTV Latin America, an AT&T company, which holds a 30% stake in the company. The channel’s programming comprises over 500 hours of original content, combining spectacular wildlife footage with puppetry, animation and narration to create a unique viewing and learning experience for preschool viewers aged three to six.
