Turner kids’ channels arrive in Sri Lanka

Turner children’s channels Cartoon Network and POGO have launched on Sri Lankan IPTV platform PEO TV.

English-language feeds of the nets went live earlier this month, bringing series such as Ben 10, Scooby Doo, M.A.D. and new show DreamWorks Dragons: Riders of Berk to the platform.

Troy Lobo, Turner International India’s senior director, network and content distribution for South Asia, called Sri Lanka “a key market” for Turner Broadcasting’s Asia Pacific business.

Sri Lanka Telecom owns and operates the PEO TV service, which has a subscriber base of more than 70,000 and more than 80 local and international channels.
