Channel 5 has increased the amount of content available through its pre-school brand Milkshake!
The Viacom-owned broadcaster is launching the content on VOD, social and on-air as the majority of schools have been closed during the coronavirus pandemic.
Across the week, 250 additional episodes of Milkshake! content will be uploaded onto Channel 5’s VOD service My5, to sit alongside the 500 episodes of Milkshake! content already on the platform.
“The Milkshake! team is working around the clock to deliver a broad range of additional free content across our platforms, helping kids and families to stay entertained as they navigate through these unchartered waters,” Louise Bucknole, VP Programming Kids, ViacomCBS Networks UK, said. “We know how hard it is for parents and carers stuck at home indoors with their children. All of our content is designed to help keep young kids occupied in a fun, safe and learning environment, providing the adults with a much needed break or co-viewing option with their little ones!”
Programming being made available includes additional series of Mr Men, Mofy, Meet the Hedgehogs, Secret Life of Puppies, Secret Life of Kittens and Angelina Ballerina.
