9 Story Distribution announces the delivery of almost 1700 half hours to top-tier AVOD platforms including Pluto, Tubi, Roku, Peacock, Xumo, Kidoodle, Amazon PVD and Happy Kids, over the last 12 months. Series placed include kids’ favourites such as Barney, Garfield and Friends, Camp Lakebottom, and more.
To further support its expansion with AVOD platforms, 9 Story has acquired worldwide VOD rights (excluding the UK and Ireland) to two new live-action titles from MonRae Productions: Let’s Game (100 x 5 min) and Challenge DanTDM (10 x 10 min).
Both series target a 6-11 age demographic and enjoyed highly successful premieres on Sky Kids in the UK. Let’s Game features some of the world’s biggest gaming talent including EthanGamer, Yammy, DanTDM, The Kabs Family and BlackPanthaa playing family-friendly games. Challenge DanTDM sees iconic YouTube gamer DanTDM take on some of his young fans playing some of their favourite games.
“The number of households adopting AVODs continues to grow dramatically, and these platforms are a fantastic way to reach young audiences,” said Elianne Friend, VP Digital & Distribution for 9 Story. “We’ve seen tremendous success with both classic series like Angelina Ballerina, and newer shows like Andy and the Bandand Weird Waters. AVOD distribution is an important part of our growth strategy and we’re thrilled to expand our offering with these two exciting new series from MonRae Productions. Featuring well-known gamer influencers, Let’s Game and Challenge DanTDM provide a great complement to our catalogue and we can’t wait to bring them to new audiences around the world.”
Elspeth Rae and Bronagh Monahan, Executive Producers and Founders of MonRae Productions said “9 Story have a stellar track record in this space and we are thrilled to have them distributing the VOD rights to Let’s Game and Challenge DanTDM internationally. Both series connect young audiences with the creators and short form content they love to consume and we look forward to seeing the series, replicating the success they have enjoyed in the UK and Ireland elsewhere.”
