Sony Pictures and DHX Media bring Teletubbies to home entertainment

Hit pre-school series Teletubbies is coming to home entertainment thanks to a new partnership between Sony Pictures and DHX Media.

New and classic episodes of the popular kids’ show will now be available in both physical and digital formats.

Launched across the UK on CBeebies last November, the rebooted Teletubbies series has been met with open arms from audiences across the world, including in the US where it premiered on Nick Jr. in May this year and in Canada on DHX’s Family Jr. where it launched in January 2016.

“Teletubbies is one of the most popular and iconic brands for young children and families around the world,” said Ben Means, SVP, third party strategic partnerships, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

“We are very pleased to be working with DHX Media to help introduce Teletubbies to new generations of fans everywhere.”

Tom Roe, commercial director, DHX brands, added: “The global appetite for Teletubbies content has proven to be unwavering, with strong demand for both the new series and the classic show.

“Given their reach and standing, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is the ideal international home entertainment partner for this brand. We look forward to Sony providing more ways for pre-schoolers and their families to engage with the magical world of the Teletubbies.”
