beIN Network has formed a partnership with DreamWorks Animation, the well-known US-based cartoon production company.
DreamWorks Channels join the beIN package in the Middle East and North Africa.
The 24-hour channel will be launched on August 1 2016 exclusively in Arabic. Viewers may also watch the channel in English. This channel is a great enhancement to beIN entertainment packages and will boost its current position as a leading media group in the region for sports, entertainment and children.
The new channel will help expand DreamWorks outside the Asia Pacific region in which it was launched on July 2015 for the first time.
The initial programming line-up will include DreamWork’s signature series Dragons: Race to the Edge, from the critically acclaimed How to Train Your Dragon franchise, and Dinotrux, DreamWork’s first original series that welcomes viewers to a world of giant creatures that are half dinosaur and half construction vehicle.
Additional series that will launch on the new channel include familiar characters from the beloved DreamWork feature series including award-winning All Hail King Julien, The Adventures of Puss in Boots, and Dawn of the Croods. The channel will also present a daily morning preschool block, featuring such favorites as Guess with Jess, Roary the Racing Car and Little Red Tractor.
