Cartoons in 10+ languages now on RokuNEW YORK, March 17, 2016 — (PRNewswire) —
NEW YORK, March 17, 2016 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Roku customers in North America are now able to watch their favorite Oznoz shows on Roku devices via the Oznoz channel.
The Oznoz Video Channel features educational and fun cartoons for children ages 0-14 in over 10 languages, including Chinese, Spanish, German, Arabic, Persian, and Japanese. Titles include Sesame Street, Super Why!, 1001 Nights, Babar, Mixed Nutz, and much more. Through Roku, Oznoz will now have access to more than 10 million homes in the U.S. alone, which have the Roku device. Oznoz Video is also available as iOS and Android apps, and on Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV stick.
Aly Jetha, co-founder and CEO of Oznoz said, "Streaming devices are such an important element of today's TV watching experience and we're proud to partner with Roku to reach millions of users throughout the U.S. and Canada."
It's no secret that cable customers are cutting the cord, and eliminating expensive pay-TV subscription packages. As people move to services like Netflix and Amazon, new revenue channels like Oznoz also pave the way for more niche content. Shabnam Rezaei, co-founder and President of Oznoz said, "It's very important for us that families can enjoy our content wherever they are, on all their devices. Parents can download our shows on their phones and tablets and play them to kids in the car or at a doctor's office, even offline. That's something many streaming services like Netflix or Hulu do not offer. Being present on Roku exposes our excellent content to a larger number of families."
Oznoz.com provides "stuff for bilingual kids," including cartoons and books in eleven languages. Current offerings are in Arabic, English, Chinese, Japanese, Persian, French, German, Korean, Spanish and Hindi. Popular titles include Elmo's World, Bob the Builder®, Angelina Ballerina®, Babar, Super Why, 1001 Nights and Thomas & Friends®. Oznoz features a multitude of bilingual books with famous titles like "Dear Zoo", "Wheels on the Bus" and "Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?" The channel covers ages 0-14 and includes animation, live-action, stop motion and much more. The Oznoz iPad app and the Oznoz Android app allow kids to watch videos on the go.
