Moonbug, Virgin Media Partner for U.K. Expansion

“Blippi,” “My Magic Pet Morphle,” “Gecko’s Garage” and many others will soon be offered on Virgin’s platform in Mid-October.

Moonbug Entertainment is partnering with Virgin Media to expand its children's programming in the U.K.

Ten new shows will air on Virgin Media’s TV platform starting in mid-October. The programs set to air include “Blippi,” “Little Baby Bum,” “Playtime with Twinkle,” “Go Buster,” “Toddler Fun Learning,” “Digley and Dazey,” “Dr Poppy,” “Supa Strikas,” “My Magic Pet Morphle” and “Gecko’s Garage.”

“We’re constantly looking for ways to expand our kids offer and we’re very pleased to add Moonbug’s impressive range of popular children’s characters for our customers,” 

says David Bouchier, chief digital entertainment officer, Virgin Media. “Not only will families gain access to more than ten new franchises, but they’ll have exclusive access to new episodes of Blippi before anyone else, from Nov. 2.”

"We couldn't be more delighted to enter this strategic partnership with Virgin Media, one of the leading platforms in the U.K.,” says Nicolas Eglau, Head of EMEA & APAC at Moonbug.

“Brands like ‘Blippi’ and ‘Morphle’ have become household names in the U.K. and by bringing them to Virgin Media customers, even more families will have the opportunity to enjoy these blockbuster titles. We look forward to working with Virgin Media on bringing more Moonbug shows to their viewers in the future."

Moonbug’s U.K. deal comes on the recent news that the brand has teamed up with UTA to leverage its brands in the consumer product licensing space in North America.
