DHX Media has secured a swathe of ten new global broadcast partners for its rebooted Teletubbies series.

The hit pre-school series will now be aired across Spain, Africa, Asia and Poland as well as in Greece, the Netherlands, Hungary, Benelux, the Middle East and Macedonia.

These new deals add to six previously announced partnerships for the new series of Teletubbies with CBeebies leading the charge in the UK, Nick Jr. in the US, Family Jr. in Canada, Gulli in France, Rai YoYo in Italy and ABC Kids in Australia.

Josh Scherba, SVP distribution at DHX Media, said: “The new Teletubbies is a key pillar of DHX’s original content programme and the global response from broadcasters has been tremendous, building on the perennial appetite for this iconic brand.

“The series has already scored high ratings on CBeebies in the UK, and with these new channels on board and our global consumer products programme rolling out, 2016 is gearing up to be a fantastic year for our favourite colourful quartet.”

Teletubbies first launched in March 1997 when it shot to success as the biggest global children’s brand of all time. It has since reached over one billion children to date and the original episodes have aired in over 120 territories in 45 different languages.
