26 August, 2009 | By Adam Beresford

JimJam, the pre-school kids channel operated by Hit Entertainment and Chello Zone, is to launch in Indonesia.

The Hit/Chello joint venture will be available on the DTH platform AORA. JimJam is aimed at children aged one to six and features programmes such as Barney, Angelina Ballerina and Thomas and Friends in its schedule.

JimJam is now available in 10 languages and over 50 territories including Russia, the Middle East and Singapore. A bespoke channel on Air New Zealand was recently announced.

“This deal with AORA is a major development for JimJam and it is the next step in our Asian expansion,” said Maria Kassova, regional director at Chello Zone Asia-Pacific.
