Quebecor Content continues to broaden its programming offering.

The content creation, acquisition and distribution division of Quebecor Media has announced a deal with DHX Media for children and youth programming for its Sélection illico and Club illico platforms, as well as its Yoopa channel. 

The deals will see DHX Media’s live-action series The Other Kingdom, Hank Zipzer and Degrassi: The Next Generation added to Quebecor Content’s youth programming. On the animation front, it has added Johnny Test, Strawberry Shortcake: Berry Bitty Adventures and Little People.

The deal with DHX comes on the heels of Quebecor Content’s recent acquisition of six lifestyle and reality shows from Scripps International for its CASA and Moi&Cie channels, as well as its three-year distribution deal with Endemol Shine International for programs such as MasterChef Australia and Bodyshockers.
