KidsCo grows in Belgium

Children's channel strengthens French service following deal with cable TV provider Telenet.

International children's channel KidsCo is expanding its presence in Belgium with leading cable television provider Telenet.

The agreement will bring KidsCo shows such as The Wiggles, Corduroy and Heathcliff, plus original content like Jass Time to children in Brussels. All shows will be broadcast in French and Telenet will begin airing programming from today (September 8th) as part of its basic package.

"Belgium is an important region for us as we look to provide international programming to kids across all countries," said Paul Robinson, MD of KidsCo. "It's also important that we work with providers who understand that children need access to great shows that teach them something.

"We're delighted that Telenet share this belief and want to help us play a major role in the education of children across Belgium."
