Cosmos-Maya secures global digital distribution deals

Original content to air on leading platforms worldwide in North America.

Leading India and Singapore-based animation studio Cosmos-Maya has secured three key digital distribution deals which will see its original content made available across 120 platforms globally including Amazon Fire TV, Apple iTunes, Hulu, ROKU and Vudu.

US-based OTT.Studio has picked up four Cosmos-Maya titles, Vir The Robot Boy, Motu Patlu, Tik Tak Tail, and Chacha Bhatija for its own Cartoon Plus channel which sits on both Roku and Amazon Fire TV.

In a separate deal, Cosmos-Maya has secured a far-reaching agreement with Binge! Networks which sees the same four original titles air on over 100 platforms across North America and globally (excluding Indian and the Indian subcontinent).

In addition, Cosmos-Maya’s own digital channel WowKidz is available through on Roku and Amazon Fire TV under the terms of the Binge! Networks agreement. Cosmos-Maya’s Wowkidz channel airs animated shows from around the world as well as Cosmos-Maya original series. WowKidz gives children 24/7 streaming access to multiple popular kids’ programs like Motu Patlu, Vir The Robot Boy, Chacha Bhatija, and Tik Tak Tail.

Anish Metha, CEO at Cosmos-Maya said: “The syndication of our content across digital platforms is strategic focus for our global growth.
