Playster Adds DHX Media Content to Library


Playster has inked a new deal with DHX Media that sees more than 165 episodes of such series as Franny’s Feet joining the multimedia streaming service.

Franny’s Feet is an animated preschool show that follows the magical adventures of a little girl. Also being added to Playster are Bo On the GO!, which aims to encourage an active lifestyle and mind, and Animal Mechanicals, an action/adventure program centered on mythical creatures.

“We’re thrilled to be working with DHX Media,” said Playster CEO Philip Keezer. “They’re behind one of the most impressive collections of child-oriented content in the world and this new agreement will allow Playster to continue strengthening its family-friendly offering.”

Mark Shoeman, territory manager at DHX Media, added: “Since they first launched, Franny’s Feet, Bo On the GO! and Animal Mechanicals have all proven to be enduringly popular with preschool kids. We’re very pleased viewers will be able to access these engaging and dynamic shows on demand on the Playster platform, alongside other hits from our library of standout kids’ and family entertainment.”
