Aardman, Tencent Ink ‘Shaun the Sheep’ Video Deal

The video deal will see episodes of the series arrive on Tencent Video.

Aardman has struck a deal with Tencent Video, which will see the launch of “Shaun the Sheep” on the leading online video streaming platform in China

The deal includes season six of the series which launched earlier this year. The placement with Tencent Video complements Aardman’s worldwide deal with Netflix for the entire “Shaun the Sheep” catalogue.

“Our new deal with Tencent Video is a truly exciting next step for our business in China and a great moment for the studio,” says Robin Gladman, senior distribution and acquisitions manager, Aardman. “Tencent Video will become a fabulous new home for our biggest global brand ‘Shaun the Sheep’ and help us reach millions of families across the territory.”
