ViacomCBS Networks International & Orange Extend Pact


ViacomCBS Networks International has struck a new distribution deal with Orange in France to offer more content across more genres.

As part of the expanded deal, Orange TV subscribers will now be able to watch popular kids’ content from such shows as PAW Patrol, Shimmer and Shine, The Loud House and Victorious from Nickelodeon brands, including Nick Jr. and Teen Nick.

Top music content including iconic events like MTV EMAs and the MTV Video Music Awards as well as reality-based programs like Geordie Shore and Catfish from MTV and MTV Hits channels will be added to the content offer.

In addition, the manga pop culture channel J-One joins the ViacomCBS library, giving Japanese animation fans access to content right after the first broadcast in Japan. This includes Detective Conan, Radiant and One Piece and Boruto: Naruto Next Generations.

Nickelodeon Jr., Nickelodeon, Nickelodeon+1 and Teen Nick will be added to the Orange platforms on July 9, while MTV, MTV HITS and J-One will be available from August 20. As a result of this deal, the entire brand portfolio of ViacomCBS Networks France is now available on Orange TV platforms in France (linear and on-demand).

“We’re thrilled to deepen our partnership with Orange by offering their customers and our fans a fresh variety of content,” said Raffaele Annecchino, president ViacomCBS Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia. “This distribution renewal marks an important step for both our partnership with Orange and brand presence in France, as we now distribute the full ViacomCBS channel portfolio throughout the French market. We look forward to building on this important relationship and offer all French audiences the best of our content.”
