According to its Berlin-based operator Da Vinci Media, this is as a result of a four-year agreement that came into effect at the beginning of this month. It sees the channel carried in Max TV’s basic package, while continuing to be available on HT affiliates Iskon and Optima.
Commenting on the development, Ferdinand Habsburg, Da Vinci Kids CEO, said: “It is with great pleasure that we can announce a new cooperation with Croatian Telekom, a group we have been eager to partner with for some time.
“This is more evidence of the demand for high quality, educational programming for kids, families, and adults alike.”
Richard John Breskovic, HT’s CEO, added: “We at Croatian Telekom recognised Da Vinci Kids as one of the best educational channels among the available kids content, which has proven itself through the years and effort spent in the market. We are happy to have the advantage of special promotion of science and knowledge within the local communities together with Da Vinci Kids”.
Da Vinci is comprised of Da Vinci Kids and Da Vinci Learning programming blocks, as well as its curated Da Vinci Kids VOD app. It is available on Deutsch Telekom-owned services operated in Hungary, Romania and Croatia.
