Panda KIDS is adding Yu-Gi-Oh! SEVENS, the latest anime series in the popular Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise, to its Monday-Friday primetime lineup.
The announcement was made by Mark Kirk, Senior Vice President, Distribution, Konami Cross Media NY, Inc.
Panda KIDS, owned by Dreamia, a joint-venture between AMC Networks International Iberia and NOS, has picked up Seasons 1 and 2 of Yu-Gi-Oh! SEVENS, comprising 92 episodes, which will air in the 21:00h time slot, Monday-Friday. Panda KIDS was launched last year by Dreamia and is available on operators NOS, MEO, Vodafone, NOWO as well as on Angolan operator ZAP. It stands out for having fun content adapted to the preferences of its young audience, who prefer to enjoy a unique and exclusive viewing experience.
“As Yu-Gi-Oh! SEVENS continues its successful run on Disney XD in the U.S. while also airing on 9GO! In Australia and Etisalat in the Middle East, we are pleased to bring the latest series in our anime franchise to Portugal, where Panda KIDS is one of the most popular channels with young viewers across the region”, said Kirk. “Much of its success is owed to Japanese anime, and Yu-Gi-Oh! SEVENS will continue to strengthen the channel’s appeal and popularity”.
