DreamWorks, renown kid’s channel is now available on Pay TV service – StarTimes

StarTimes TV customers are set for yet another treat with addition of a renown kids’ channel – DreamWorks on its top two packages. This was made possible by a recent collaboration between NBCUniversal International Networks and StarTimes which has a substantial following here in Kenya and Africa at large. DreamWorks offers programs dedicated to kids and family around the clock and has since become available here in Kenya for StarTimes customers.

Customers on the Classic bouquet and Super bouquet can access DreamWorks on Channel 354 and Channel 301 respectively. The channel is expected to bring interesting animated cartoons such as the American computer-animated adventure-comedy PUSS IN BOOTS. It’ll join a bunch of existing channels such as CBeebies, Toonami, Nickelodeon, ST Kids, JimJam and Baby TV to keep kids glued on the screen while schools remain closed for the rest of the year.

 While speaking on the development, NBCUniversal International Networks MD Lee Raftery said the organization was collaborating with StarTimes to bring award-winning shows and beloved characters to Sub-Saharan Africa through DreamWorks which he acknowledged was a key milestone for their business.

StarTimes head of media division Lily Meng said the Pay TV was excited to bring DreamWorks onboard especially in Africa. Lily further acknowledged the collaboration was a continuous commitment by StarTimes to providing premium content to its African audience.

The addition comes at a time when children have been forced to stay home due to current pandemic that has rendered learning institutions not safe. StarTimes has particularly struggled to keep up with Dstv which owns rights to broadcast the English premier league that many Kenyans adore. However, the Pay Tv service has been forging collaborations, striking deals with various organizations to bring more content on its platform. Recently, it received rights to air the Europa games that most Kenyans will find interesting now that top leagues have mostly completed their season games.
