Titles that are slated to begin streaming on Amazon Prime Video this fall include Bob the Builder, Fireman Sam, Caillou, Johnny Test, Yo Gabba Gabba!, classic Inspector Gadget and In the Night Garden.

“Leading global SVOD services are forecast to collectively spend approximately $19 billion on content through 2018,” said Dana Landry, the CEO of DHX Media. “This far-reaching agreement announced today with Amazon Prime Video reinforces DHX Media’s position as a ‘go-to’ provider of multi-language kids’ content to this robust market.”

“Great animation and stories resonate with kids regardless of language or location,” added Wiebke Hoefer, DHX Media’s senior director of sales for Germany, Switzerland, France, U.K. digital and multi-territory digital. “We are thrilled that kids worldwide are now able to enjoy original and classic DHX Media shows on Amazon Prime Video.”
