TV is about to become a bit more Zoo-tastic. We’re excited to tell you that Zoonicorn has signed an agreement with Future Today, a video technology and distribution company that helps content creators distribute and monetize their content on the internet, mobile devices, and connected television platforms. Zoonicorn videos will air On Demand on HappyKids.tv, an Internet based channel of Future Today that offers entertainment and education to children of all ages with music, stories, and activity guides to 20 million homes.
Recently reaching 2.5 million views on YouTube, Zoonicorn’s five music videos will now be available On Demand across multiple platforms, including Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Sony, Google TV, Kindle Fire, Nook, Windows 8 and Android phones and Tablets. HappyKids is the second most popular kids channel on Roku directly following PBS Kids and is in the top 25 global children’s channels on YouTube.
Our four videos introduce children to the four main Zoonicorn characters and a fifth video explores the wonders of the Zoonicorn universe, or Zooniverse, where all of the characters sing about their enchanting home. All created with toe-tapping original music and lyrics, the music videos build on the Zoonicorns’ “can” and “do” attitudes and helping their friends in need be brave in their dreams, which is when they have adventures in the Zooniverse.
