“WildBrain has already achieved tremendous success on YouTube and we have now extended our reach across these additional AVOD platforms to grow our audiences in the US and Canada even more,” said Jon Gisby, managing director at WildBrain.

“Our library offers an enormous range of entertainment content for kids of every age, and we’re delighted that families with Apple TV, Amazon Fire and Roku will now have additional options for enjoying WildBrain’s top brands on their TVs, phones, tablets and computers.”

The company claims that from July to September 2018, one-third of the approximately 830 million kids around the world with access to YouTube watched at least one video on the WildBrain network.
