Kids and family entertainment specialist Decode has scored a host of international deals for new pre-school show Poko.

The series is produced by Decode's sister company at DHX Media, Halifax Film, and is currently in its third season on CBC in Canada.

Discovery Kids has snapped up non-standard and standard television rights in Spanish for the US to seasons one to three, with Discovery Kids Latin America acquiring non-standard rights for season three in English, Spanish and Portuguese.

Decode has also sold all 109 episodes to Italy's RaiSat, the first 26 shows to Polmedia's Mini Mini cable and satellite channel, while Turkish digital broadcasting platform DigiTurk has acquired season three, as well as a renewal for the first two series.

Additionally, Hong Kong's ATV has committed to series two and three, Korea's Skylife has picked up the first two seasons for its Kids-Talk-Talk channel and Pacific Bridge has obtained home video rights for Korea. In Australia, ABC2 has signed up for season two.

"These deals illustrate the advantage of bringing Decode and Halifax together under DHX Media," said Neil Court, president of Decode Enterprises. "Poko, along with Halifax's other impressive children and family shows, complements Decode's production output."
