- Service will offer premium children's titles and pre-school educational  content

 
 
   

NEW YORK, Jan. 5,    2015 /PRNewswire/ -- YOU On Demand Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: YOD) ("YOU On Demand"), a    leading Video On Demand ("VOD") service provider in China delivering Hollywood    movies and premium content to mobile and TV screens, today announced the launch of    its YOU Kids On Demand subscription platform ("YOU Kids") for cable and IPTV.

   

In March 2014, in anticipation of this launch, YOU    On Demand signed agreements with Nelvana Enterprises, Sesame Workshop and HiT    Entertainment Ltd. to offer popular children's entertainment titles, which will be    offered on this platform.

   

YOU Kids, which will be entirely programmed and operated by YOU On Demand, will    initially launch with Nanjing Cable, which reaches 3 million two-way cable    subscribers.  The service will then expand to other cable and IPTV networks in    additional regions in the coming weeks and months. 

   

On a case-by-case basis, YOU On Demand will either subtitle or dub each specific    title into simplified Chinese, based on whether the age group that a title is    intended for has the propensity to read.

   

According to Huidian Research, the market for children's entertainment and    education has enormous potential in China, where    there are about 180 million children under the age of eight and more than 20 million    newborns annually, one out of three in urban areas.

   

Shane McMahon, Chairman of YOU On Demand, stated,    "We are excited for the launch of our YOU Kids subscription platform, which will    provide the best in premium family-friendly entertainment and educational content to    our growing and broadening consumer base in China."
