Los Angeles: Leading on-demand kids service Toon Goggles has added a suite of dedicated kids and family linear channels to its service available as the first kids vMVPD offering. This creates a one-stop application for families to stream on-demand and linear content globally.

“We are delighted to bring the fun and wonder of record-breaking to young viewers through our partnership with Toon Goggles, ” said Karen Gilchrist, Director of Visual Content, Guinness World Records Ltd. “Through our new channel on the platform, we aspire to encourage the next generation of record-holders by sharing exciting and incredible achievements, stories, and more, from across the globe.”

We hope that fans are as excited as we are, and in cooperation with our partner CAKE, we look forward to introducing even more great Angry Birds content on the platform very soon.”
