FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE January 14th, 2020
LONDON, UK, Jan. 14th, 2020 / Azoomee, a kid-focused media company headquartered in London has today announced the acquisition of Berlin-based Da Vinci Media.
The purchase is a key step in Azoomee’s global expansion. Da Vinci Media serves a large audience of avid learners through its TV channels and its digital app. The combined group brings together the world’s largest library of games and videos for kids focused on fun learning. Operating under the two brands “Azoomee” and “Da Vinci Kids”, the combined business serves over 45 million subscribers via connected TVs, linear channels and mobile apps in 150+ countries across the globe.
Douglas Lloyd, CEO, commented: “Azoomee has developed in-house a highly scalable, award-winning digital platform that works on any connected device anywhere. We are excited to give Da Vinci customers access to their premium educational content across our world class technology platform.”
Estelle Lloyd, COO, added: “Distribution is key for our content partners. Significantly, this deal gives us a truly global footprint through long term partnerships with telcos, cable and satellite operators and public broadcasters alongside being present in every major app store and on connected TVs.”
Ferdinand Habsburg, Founder Da Vinci Media, commented: “I am delighted that two leading brands in kids’ edutainment have joined forces. Da Vinci inspires kids aged 6-11 with programming such as Operation Ouch, whilst Azoomee appeals to younger primary school children aged 4-7. Both companies are dedicated to the curious mindset of Leonardo da Vinci, making learning an exciting adventure.”
