With ambitious plans to reach over six million households by early 2008, Chellomedia’s new pre-school TV channel JimJam has launched its first feed across Central Europe.
The channel will reach an extra 1.4 million subscribers as a result of its latest launch. The channel is owned by Chellomedia and Hit Entertainment, with the launch and distribution plans for the station due to continue through 2008.
The roll out in Central Europe follows JimJam’s arrival on the Sky Italia platform in Italy. The recent launches sees the channel add a further four new territories where it is fully versioned in the local language. JimJam will now be carried on UPC Broadband – Europe’s largest cable network – in Poland, Hungary, Slovakia and the Czech Republic.
JimJam has been dubbed into English, Polish, Hungarian and Czech, with a Romanian channel due to launch in January 2008.
