DHX Media has signed a major European deal for its much anticipated new Teletubbies series, with French network Gulli acquiring exclusive Free TV rights as well as non-exclusive VOD rights for its online platform GulliMax.

Set to air on the channel in France from early 2016, the deal includes French-language broadcast in territories where Gulli is available, including Monaco, Andorra, Mauritius, Belgium, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Russia, Maghreb, Near and Middle East, Sub-Saharan Africa, Poland, Romania, Portugal, Austria, Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia, Montenegro, Albania, Slovenia, Belarus and Israel.

It will also air on pay TV network Gulli AFRICA, reaching 22 countries in Sub-Saharan Africa.

“France is an important part of our European roll out for Teletubbies for both broadcast and consumer products," said Josh Scherba, SVP distribution of DHX Media.

"We’ve had a great response to the new show, and with Gulli on board we are preparing a strong lineup of channels for launch.”

Caroline Cochaux, executive director in charge of Broadcast and TV Programs for France and International at Lagardère Active, added: “We are delighted to be a part of this new show.

"The pre-school unit, called “Gullidoo”, broadcasting in the morning and at midday on Gulli’s air, is one of the most popular of the day. Teletubbies will perfectly fit into our schedule.”
