DStv Launches A New Kids Channel, Moonbug

Pre-school children are the focus of a new channel, Moonbug launched recently on the DStv platform.

Liz Dziva, publicity and public relations manager of MultiChoice Zimbabwe, said the channel was a showcase for a range of shows suited to pre-schoolers and which have been popular on the YouTube platform. She said:

There is a trend for broadcasters like DStv to incorporate content that was previously only available on digital platforms like YouTube and this mindset is now one adopted for DStv.

Other Moonbug linear channels have already launched in other territories, such as the Philippines and Malaysia, and are proving successful and popular, and we know Zimbabwean families will welcome this development.

 Dziva said digital-first content was entering the traditional world of broadcast channels and the quality and appeal of these shows had improved greatly in recent years, making inclusion on broadcast platforms a natural consequence. Added Dziva:

Platforms like ours recognise that these shows have benefits for the creators and the broadcasters, and most especially for viewers.

The Moonbug Kids Channel started broadcasting on October 20 across the DStv reach throughout Africa. All Moonbug shows feature in English, including CoComelon, Blippi, Gecko’s Garage, Morphle, Arpo, Little Angel and Oddbods. Said Dziva:
