The carriage is based on a multi-year agreement covering Germany, Austria and Switzerland which the German pay-TV broadcaster signed with parent company ViacomCBS Networks International.
“We’re delighted to extend our partnership with Sky and offer Nick Jr. and NickToons fans in the GSA region their favourite shows on Sky platforms,” said Raffaele Annecchino, president of ViacomCBS Networks EMEA and Asia. “With robust collaborations already in place in the UK and Italy, we truly value our partnership with Sky and are excited to be able to deliver premium kids’ content, both linear and on-demand, to more families in these regions.”
The channels replace Disney Junior, which will leave Sky Deutschland on March 31, 2020, and offer their programmes both as linear channels and on-demand. The line-up includes popular series such as SpongeBob SquarePants (pictured), Paw Patrol and Lego City Adventures.
All Sky subscribers and all Sky Ticket customers with signed up for the Entertainment package can receive the new channels.
The agreement further strengthens the long-standing relationship between ViacomCBS and Sky across Europe, with Sky already distributing ViacomCBS’ TV networks and content and selling advertising across its portfolio of channels in the UK and Italy.
