Paul Robinson joins Your Family Entertainment AG to build out international TV business

Munich, March 21, 2014: Paul Robinson, Managing Director of the full service consultancy Creative Media Partners Ltd., is taking over the strategic and operative international roll-out of the TV channels run by Your Family Entertainment AG. Paul Robinson will work to expand both well-established channels "yourfamily" and "RiC TV" beyond German Speaking Europe.

Paul Robinson has more than 30 years' experience in the broadcasting business. He was Senior Vice President of Walt Disney Television International based in London and Los Angeles and he was founder and CEO of the children TV channel KidsCo. He devised the strategy and built it from 2005 to when he left in 2011 coinciding with NBC Universal taking control. Paul was the driving force behind the huge distribution of KidsCo which got it to 98 countries and 18 languages. Paul is well respected in the international channel business and will be working with the YFE team to roll the channel out to platforms globally.

"Your Family Entertainment was a content supplier to KidsCo and shares similar values and attributes. There is a gap in the market now that KidsCo has disappeared and YFE is best placed to fill that gap for platforms. I look forward to helping to roll out YFE's channels internationally", Paul Robinson says.

"Paul Robinson is the expert in the international kids television business. Highly innovative, he manages to set up operations very effectively. It is time for the success story of both, our award wining pay channel "yourfamily" and the roll out of "RiC" our innovative well-received free TV channel, to be continued beyond German speaking Europe. The whole broadcast team of Your Family Entertainment AG looks very much forward to working with Paul" says Stefan Piëch, CEO of Your Family Entertainment AG.
