Planet Knowledge owner VOD365 and Endemol strike content deal




The operator of streaming channels Planet Knowledge and Ketchup TV has announced a new content deal with Endemol Shine Group - with over 300 hours of new programming coming across the two services.

VOD365 and Endemol Shine's deal means programmes such as Inside Man, Declassified and Death Row Stories will appear on Planet Knowledge later this year alongside other programming across a variety of genres.

Meanwhile, VOD365's children's TV service Ketchup TV will get Bananas in Pyjamas and brand-new animation PC Bob, following its launch on YouTube earlier in the year.

VOD365 Founder and CEO, Paul Coster, said:
“We are extremely pleased to have concluded this content agreement with Endemol Shine Group. As well as being the largest content deal we have agreed to date for Planet Knowledge, with 300 hours of quality programming added to the channel, this partnership also represents the industry’s greater focus on AVOD platforms and new distribution models of which VOD365 is at the forefront.”
