Yu-Gi-Oh! Joins Kidoodle.TV


Konami Cross Media NY has reached an agreement with Kidoodle.TV to bring the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise to the kid-friendly streamer’s content slate.

The deal marks the first time Yu-Gi-Oh! will be available on Kidoodle.TV. Beginning this month, the streaming service will offer Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V seasons one through three. This includes 148 half-hour episodes in English, featuring all-new action duels that see monsters literally come to life with advancements in holographic technology.

In Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V, Yuya Sakaki’s dream is to follow in his father’s footsteps and become the greatest “duel-trainer” in history—and he just might pull it off when he suddenly discovers Pendulum Summoning, a never-before-seen technique that lets him summon several monsters at once. But when countless rivals emerge to steal his spotlight, Yuya needs to gear up his game.

Kidoodle.TV is an AVOD channel for children under 12, currently available in 140-plus countries, with more than 17,000 episodes of content and is available in multiple languages. Its programming team handpicks every show, ensuring all content is age-appropriate and represents the very best in educational, entertaining and inspiring stories.

“We are pleased to be in partnership with Kidoodle.TV, the Safe Streaming™ kids AVOD platform,” said Mark Kirk, senior VP and director of digital operations at Konami Cross Media NY. “Kidoodle.TV’s global reach provides yet another platform for kids all over the world to engage with the Yu-Gi-Oh! brand.”

“The addition of KONAMI’s high-quality anime franchise, Yu-Gi-Oh!, is a great example of our growing content offering for children globally. We are thrilled to add this kind of quality, entertaining and imaginative content on the Kidoodle.TV channel, further expanding our large offering,” said Brenda Bisner, chief content officer at Kidoodle.TV.
