Munich, 23th January 2020
Vodafone adds Your Family Entertainment AG's children and family programme "Fix & Foxi" TV to its Pay-TV portfolio and extends the Video-on-Demand (VOD) cooperation
Following the successful collaboration in the non-linear area, YFE's linear channel "Fix & Foxi" TV will be included in the Vodafone's Pay-TV package "HD Premium Plus".
Both parties further agreed to significantly improve the content offering available in video-on-demand packages. YFE will add children's series in several foreign languages, e.g. English, French, Arabic, Turkish, to Vodafone's VOD offering. In general, YFE can draw on a portfolio of more than 3,500 half-hour shows of high-quality, non-violent children programmes in multiple languages.
This is yet another step in the continuous expansion of YFE in domestic and international markets, after having previously won the Eutelsat award for best children's programme.
"We have reacted quickly to market requirements and can now offer both non-linear VOD content and our linear TV channel "Fix & Foxi" TV" in one package. We as YFE are a flexible and independent provider and are able to open our library of high-quality films and series for the whole family to the market, such as "Heroes of the City", "Urmel" or "The Little Bear". We are pleased to be able to entertain Vodafone customers and viewers with our children's and family programs," said Armin Schnell, Executive Vice President Sales of Your Family Entertainment AG.
