Your Family Entertainment AG: Africell adds family channel Fix&Foxi to new mobile TV service
Your Family Entertainment AG announced today that its popular family channel Fix&Foxi will be part of Africell's upcoming mobile TV service.
The Fix&Foxi Channel is Your Family Entertainment's fast-growing international family channel and is currently available on four different continents. It is the world's first TV channel named after well-known comic heroes and delivers kids-safe, entertaining and educational content to children of all ages and their families. The Fix&Foxi Channel owes its success to its high-quality blend of 2D, CGI-animated and live-action TV programs. All content is fun, visually rich, free of violence and communicates positive values. It includes classic characters, first runs and brand-new shows with great storytelling to encourage childrens' imagination.
This formula makes it a perfect fit for Africell's new mobile TV service, which has been piloted in The Gambia and will soon launch in Sierra Leone and Democratic Republic of Congo. The platform features a variety of channels, covering a wide range of topics from movies and documentaries to music and learning programs. Africell is a mobile network operator with more than 12 million customers in four African countries.
