BBC Studios brings two kids channels to Pluto

BBC Studios will launch two new free, ad-supported kids streaming platforms via Pluto TV in the US. The deal will see BBC Studios’ first-ever, child-focused ad-supported channels - BBC Kids and Spanish-language Ninos por BBC - stream more than 450 hours on Pluto TV.

Titles available include, Sarah & Duck, Andy’s Prehistoric Adventures, Andy’s Wild Adventures, Dinopaws, and Mr. Bloom’s Nursery.

Pluto TV has been stocking up on new content since its parent company ViacomCBS Networks International (VCNI) acquired a majority stake in Fox TeleColombia and Estudios TeleMéxico to grow the company’s Spanish-language content. VCNI has also been building Pluto’s distribution reach, teaming up with Nordic Entertainment Group to launch the platform across Sweden, Denmark and Norway this year.
