BABYFIRST, a US-based commercial-free educational channel for babies which stars VocabuLarry, a talking parrot that teaches English words, is coming to Cambodia.
HBO Asia, the distribution partner for the program, has signed a deal with Cambodia Entertainment Production Co (Cepco), to broadcast BabyFirst in the Kingdom.
BabyFirst broadcasts educational and entertainment material for young children and their parents, with the content available on TV networks, the internet, and mobile apps.
Early this month, Guy Oranim, BabyFirst ceo, said the program was about to be introduced to Indonesia and Cambodia.
Jacelyn Kek, senior vice president of sales and marketing for HBO Asia, said “Subscribers in Indonesia and Cambodia will now have access to quality educational and entertaining content for young children and their parents.”
Cambodia Entertainment Production Co, or Cepco, is owned by the Royal Group, and the company confirmed that the channel would be aired in Cambodia “soon.” Watch this space for more details.
BabyFirst has won numerous awards for its original programming including an iParenting Award, Parents’ Choice Award and Creative Child Award.
The original series included VocabuLarry, plus Numbers Around the Globe, which introduces the numbers one to five through animals in all parts of the world, and My Gym at Home, where baby and parent can watch and follow along as My Gym instructors lead fun fitness routines.
