Newly formed Italian children's network Junior TV has picked up the first two series of pre-school animation Niloya.
The Bee & Bird Animation show - which is licensed by Turkey-based Kaynak Licensing Company - will air on the pre-school focused channel everyday for the first year of the new three-year deal.
The agreement grants the rights for exclusive free TV DTT rights through any technological means, platforms and devices. It also includes catch up TV services and non exclusive SVOD web rights for the first episode on the channel site (www.juniortv.it).
The show will be available in Italian for the territory. In addition, there are also a range of Niloya themed games, wallpapers and screensavers available on www.niloya.com.
"We're delighted that Niloya is to air in Italy as Junior TV joins us as broadcasting partner in Italy," said Hakan Tungac, MD of Kaynak Licensing Company. "We've had a fantastic response to the series across all the markets in which it now airs.
"We have started the talks for international broadcasting of the animation; pretty soon Niloya will meet her new friends all over the world's children's TV channels."
