Mango TV Scores BBC Worldwide Titles


SINGAPORE: Subscribers to the Chinese content platform Mango TV will be able to access a curated selection of documentary and preschool content from BBC Worldwide.

The deal, announced ahead of the kickoff of Showcase on Monday, follows the signing of a strategic partnership agreement between BBC Worldwide and Mango TV in October. The agreement announced today covers Tigers About the House, Trust Me, I’m a Doctor and the animated preschool series The Numtums, among others.

We look forward to making more new exciting announcements in the next few months.”

“Both Mango TV and BBC Worldwide are committed to bringing the best entertainment content to Chinese audiences,” added Molly Nie, chairwoman of Mango TV. “This partnership has been very fruitful and we look forward to developing more exciting opportunities with BBC Worldwide.”
