Thomas the Tank Engine and his friends from other children’s TV shows are huffing and puffing their way onto Lovefilm.
Thomas & Friends, Fireman Sam and Chuggington are arriving on the platform. The firm is also retaining rights to other classic characters such as He-Man and Postman Pat.
Lovefilm stuck a deal with HIT Entertainment, Ludorum and DreamWorks Classics for various kids shows. Favourites such as Where’s Wally, Bob the Builder and Kipper and over 50 episodes of Thomas & Friends will be available to stream.
The streaming service also gets exclusive rights to feature length movies featuring the little blue engine, such as “Blue Mountain Mystery”, “Misty Island Rescue” and “Day of the Diesels”.
“The addition of this new children’s content enhances our already fantastic range of iconic characters and classic shows,” said Lovefilm’s content strategy director Chris Bird.
“Our streaming service is particularly suited to family content, and parents and their kids can now enjoy an even broader variety of family-friendly entertainment whenever they want, however they want.”
