The deal is BBC Worldwide’s first children’s package with Amazon Prime Video in the UK and Ireland. It comprises more than 520 episodes of programming, with titles including CBeebies’ Charlie & Lola and Gigglebiz, and CBBC’s The Story of Tracy Beaker and Horrible Histories. Launch dates will roll out throughout the year.
The first instalments of Hey Duggee, Sarah & Duck and The Story of Tracy Beaker and seasons two to four of Horrible Histories are already available.
Jonathan Newman, the sales and business development director at BBC Worldwide, said: “The deal reflects the growing investment that leading streaming services like Amazon Prime Video are making to offer world-class, high-quality children’s programming to their subscribers.”
