Pip Ahoy! sails to China
In June 2017, we were delighted to announce that our popular 2D-animated preschool series Pip Ahoy! made its on-demand premiere in China, thanks to CHF Entertainment’s partnership with Yecheng Shanghai Media, Shanghai Media Group-owned Wings Media and China Telecom.
The first 52 Mandarin-dubbed episodes launched simultaneously across IPTV, SVOD and satellite networks in China, including Shanghai Online, Shanghai IPTV and BesTV, which is available in 20 million homes in Shanghai alone.
With more deals on the horizon, Pip Ahoy! could reach a potential on-demand audience of nearly 900 million homes throughout China.
Since making announcement, it has been amazing to see major international television titles such as Kidscreen, Worldscreen and TBI Vision sharing the news for us along with other trade press such Animation Magazine and Licensing Source also jumping aboard!
A third 26 x 11’ series of Pip Ahoy! is currently still in production in collaboration with Wings Media so keep watching this space for further updates.
