VOOT Kids Takes CBeebies Titles


The new VOOT Kids platform has licensed a package of CBeebies content from BBC Studios.

The kids’ entertainment and learning app was unveiled by Viacom18 Media last month. The slate from CBeebies joining the platform includes Hey Duggee, as well as Go Jetters, Dinopaws, Mr Bloom’s Nursery, Old Jack’s Boat Rockpool Tales and a collection of bedtime stories.

Saugato Bhowmik, business head at VOOT Kids, noted, “With VOOT Kids our endeavor is to create a superior curated platform that brings together a prudent mix of fun and learning. Our diverse and expansive content library and games are a great way for parents to infuse meaningful and fun learning opportunities into the daily lives of kids, largely interested only in entertainment. Kids love positive stories and adorable toons and the addition of CBeebies shows is sure to add significant diversity and value to our vast content slate”

Stanley Fernandes, sales director for South and Southeast Asia at BBC Studios, added, “CBeebies is known worldwide for its impressive content lineup, with programs specially designed by developmental experts to promote imaginative play, social interaction, language skills and educational values. Along with VOOT Kids, we are aiming to make screen time meaningful for kids, so that it is entertaining, engaging and enriching.”

VOOT Kids features more than 5,000 hours of local and international content.
