Sesame Workshop will be one of the primary providers of Spanish-language content for US Hispanic network HITN’s new pre-school service Edye, its first SVOD solution for the region.

htin 15 april 2019Edye’s content offering includes seasons three and four of The Furchester Hotel, a series set in a cheerfully chaotic inn run by a close-knit family of monsters. A coproduction of Sesame Workshop and the BBC’s CBeebies, the show aims to strengthen children’s problem-solving skills. In addition to The Furchester Hotel and a range of other short-format Sesame Workshop content, the digital platform offers educational guides for parents, as well as a wide variety of videos, games and children’s books, all in Spanish. Edye, HITN’s first SVOD service for the region, will become available at the end of April.

“We are very excited to include Sesame Workshop’s content in the launch of our new SVOD preschool service Edye,” said Erika Vogt-Lowell, director, Programming and Acquisitions, HITN. “We have been carefully handpicking every single title that will be featured at the launch of our service and having Sesame Workshop content is a shining example of that effort. Their programmes combine high entertainment and educational values, presented by well-known characters that are very close to the hearts of both, children and parents.”

“As viewing habits change, OTT services like Edye allow kids and families to enjoy high-quality educational entertainment on their busy schedules,” added Jennifer Perry, Sesame Workshop’s VP and publisher, North America Media Products. “We're thrilled to work with HITN as the first preschool content provider on Edye. Together, we’ll share engaging Sesame Street programming with Spanish-speaking families across the country.”
