Playground TV has partnered with Munich-based Your Family Entertainment to launch a dedicated German on-demand channel for children.

Spearheading the launch is the kids’ entertainment brand Fix & Fox, a part of Your Family Entertainment. Originally created by Rolf Kauka, the cartoon characters Fix and Foxi have their own television channels on four different continents—a German-language version in the German-speaking region, an English/Arabic version in MENA and an English/neutral Spanish version distributed around the world.

Die Kleine 9 channel will launch with hundreds of episodes in German. Available titles include Fix & Foxi, Die Drachenjäger, Sherm! and Da Boom Crew among others, all provided by Your Family Entertainment.

Daniel Nordberg, CEO of Playground TV, said: “The German language is important as the native language of almost 100 million people around the world. With a dedicated new channel in German on Playground TV called Die Kleine 9, powered by German hit cartoons from Your Family Entertainment, we will be able to let the German-speaking kids across Europe enjoy cartoons in their native tongue.”

Bernd Wendeln, CEO of Your Family Entertainment, adds, “We are very excited to work with Playground TV. The platform’s commitment to providing kids all over Europe with cartoons to help them strengthen their language skills fits perfectly with our focus on fun and educational content.”
