The content comes from 16 different kids gaming channels on YouTube and will focus on kid-friendly, parent approved games like Minecraft and Roblox. The lineup includes Little Lizard Adventures, Little Kelly Mindcraft, ExplodingTNT, Little Carly Minecraft, Sharky Minecraft, RoPo, B-Dick and Scott Tiny Turtle.
“As a Safe Streaming channel for children, we actively harness the power of trends in the market, like gaming content. The quality gamers that Omnia represents makes this roster of talent a meaningful addition to our offering globally,” said Brenda Bisner, chief content officer at Kidoodle.TV.
Omnia Media’s brands, including Arcade Cloud, BCC Gaming and Wisecrack, are available on core platforms such as YouTube, Snapchat, Facebook and Instagram, and via live, VOD and linear cable channels around the globe.
