Silvergate Media announced that Warner Bros. Discovery’s preschool channel Cartoonito and streaming platform HBO Max have secured the rights for the acclaimed animated series Octonauts in Latin America.
Octonauts series one-three will be available to watch on Cartoonito and HBO Max in neutral Spanish (Latin Spanish) and Brazilian Portuguese later in the year. Silvergate will also launch local language Octonauts YouTube channels in the Latin American region building on the success of the Spanish language Octonauts YouTube channel, which is consistently a top three Octonauts channel worldwide.
These new launches form the next steps in Silvergate’s strategy to expand the Octonauts brand in the Latin American region and build on a strong fanbase.
A robust consumer products programme is being planned with Octonauts toys from global master toy partner, Moose Toys, launching in Mexico in 2022 with the wider LatAm roll out to follow in 2023.
“We’re thrilled to announce this latest agreement with Warner Bros. Discovery,” says EVP Commercial Ron Allen. “The partnerships with Cartoonito and HBO Max as well as expanding with dedicated YouTube channels will strengthen our fanbase further and pave the way for future growth in this region.”
