BabyFirstTV, the 24/7 commercial-free educational and child development channel for babies, toddlers, and their parents, has entered Central America and the Caribbean through carriage agreements with CTV Telecom (Panama) and Columbus Communications Trinidad.
BabyFirstTV is available in both English and Spanish and CTV will take the feed in Spanish while Columbus will offer it in English. The distribution of the Spanish feed augments distribution that is also utilized by operators in the United States for the domestic Hispanic market, as well as Mexico, where the channel airs on Sky Mexico, Cablevision, and PCTV; and Puerto Rico, where it is available via Onelink.
The expansion of BabyFirstTV into Central America follows on the heels of the channel’s recent launches in Canada (Rogers Cable and Bell ExpressVu) and France (Canal Sat). BabyFirstTV is also available in the UK (BSkyB), Korea (Korea Telecom, Hanaro), Taiwan (ChungHwa MOD), and the Middle East (via Showtime Arabia).
