In September, Genius Brands will launch a FAST Kartoon Channel! on Waipu, the largest OTT platform in Germany. The company also recently debuted Kartoon Channel! in New Zealand on Samsung TV Plus, and in the Philippines on Tapp Digital.  Kartoon Channel! branded blocks are currently available in 65 countries across the Middle East, Africa, and Latin America.

We offer Kartoon Channel! as a Pay TV channel, branded blocks, AVOD or SVOD, which gives platforms and partners unrivalled flexibility, as well as localizing to individual markets.  We expect these agreements and others in process to contribute meaningfully to our revenue and earnings going forward,” said Robinson.
