MUMBAI: India’s Toonz Media Group's new kids channel will now be distributed via ReachMe.TV’s in-hotel and in-airport networks in the US. Toonz TV is planning to roll out internationally in the third quarter of 2017.

Toonz Media has partnered with Los Angeles-based mobile entertainment network ReachMe.TV, a multi-channel, digital TV entertainment network and integrated global distribution platform that reaches viewers on the go, to launch Toonz TV, a new animation-focused family and kids channel.

ToonsTV is the home of the wildly popular Angry Birds Toons series, the first-ever animated series from Rovio Entertainment, and hand-selected family entertainment shows from around the world. ToonsTV is available on all Angry Birds apps (on iOS and Android devices) the ToonsTV website, Roku video streaming players and Samsung Smart TVs.

Toonz TV telecasts content of cost, including a Toonz Channel and selection of television series on ReachMe.TV’s mobile web platform, that’s now available to a potential audience of over 100 million US viewers, Kidscreen reported.

ReachMe.TV’s round-the-clock hotel network at present reaches over 750,000 rooms in top-tier US hotels with an estimated reach of 30 million viewers per month. Its in-airport screens reportedly reach approximately 80 million-plus viewers per month in the top 50 US airports.

The channel takes content from Toonz’s international animation catalogue, and also shows produced by Toonz’s Thiruvananthapuram-based studio and ReachMe.TV’s production centre space in Hollywood.

Toonz TV will additionally support families on the go with complimentary in-room movie packages, games and popular downloads.

Interactive games that incorporate VR and AR are also under way, and a section of ReachMe.TV programming will be accessible on Toonz’s global multi-channel network that operates on platforms including Dailymotion, YouTube, Roku, YuppTV and Amazon Prime.
