Pre-schoolers’ channel JimJam has launched in Indonesia for the first time, signing a deal with year-old DTH provider Aora TV. It is the second Asian launch for the HIT Entertainment/Chellozone channel following a start in Singapore in October 2008.

Launched in 2006, JimJam now covers over 50 territories and is available in 10 languages. Programming includes merchandise-friendly Thomas & Friends, Bob the Builder and Angelina Ballerina.

Ongki Soemarno, President Director of AORA, said: "We are proud to be the first Indonesian pay-TV platform to introduce the JimJam channel, where parents can rest assured that their children can safely learn while having fun."
