Corus to Handle Nick Content in Canada

Nickelodeon has broadened its partnership with Corus Entertainment to include exclusive rights to all of Nickelodeon’s English- and French-language content across both existing and emerging digital platforms as well as linear services in Canada.

Corus will now serve as the sole distributor and rights holder of Nickelodeon’s current content and library titles in the country including "SpongeBob SquarePants," "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles," "Dora and Friends" and "Bubble Guppies."

Canadian audiences have been enjoying Nickelodeon content on Corus’ kids and family networks YTV and Treehouse since 2005, when Corus signed its first output deal with the studio. Then in 2009, Corus launched the standalone channel Nickelodeon Canada.

“This marks a new phase of our enhanced partnership with Nickelodeon and builds on Corus’ 10-year history as a trusted steward for the brand,” says Doug Murphy, president and chief executive officer, Corus Entertainment. “We are excited to leverage Nickelodeon’s high-quality

content in new and innovative ways, giving Corus a competitive edge in this evolving media landscape, while offering Canada’s young, savvy digital consumers and their families full access to Nickelodeon’s brands.”
