CBC has licensed more than 100 episodes across a span of genres from 9 Story Media Group’s portfolio of kids’ and family programming for its streaming platform CBC Gem.
The new acquisition deal includes the first season of the preschool series Moon and Me from Sutikki and Foundling Bird and the first season of 9 Story’s Daniel Tiger’s Neighbourhood. The Australian live-action drama Grace Beside Me and three Garfield CG films—Garfield’s Pet Force, Garfield’s Fun Fest and Garfield Gets Real—are part of the deal as well.
Daniel Tiger’s Neighbourhood is available now to stream on CBC Gem, with Moon and Me and the Garfield films rolling out on February 7, followed by Grace Beside Me on February 14.
These new additions are part of CBC’s goal to increase the amount of kids’ digital content available on CBC Gem. The free streaming service currently offers more than 300 hours of advertising-free programming for young Canadians.
