VOD Network Kabillion Launches VHX-Powered Digital Store
Kabillion, a free VOD network in the US focused on kids programming, has struck a deal with VHX to launch a digital storefront for its titles.
VHX is a digital video service that powers direct distribution of content. The startup, which last year raised $3.2 million from Union Square Ventures, is most famous for distribution Aziz Ansari’s stand-up special “Dangerously Delicious” and “Camp Takota,” an indie comedy starring YouTube stars Grace Helbig, Mamrie Hart, and Hannah Hart.
Now, fans of Kabillion content will be able to purchase and download the titles, capable of being streamed across multiple devices. Titles on sale right now include the animated series “Chloe’s Closet,” “Hero:108,” “The DaVincibles,” and “Dive Olly Dive.”
“We need to be everywhere and our partnership with VHX has enabled us to create a storefront that fulfills this need,” said David Di Lorenzo, Kabillion’s VP of licensing and digital distribution, in a statement.
“We are excited to help Kabillion take control of premium video sales through their own website. It’s a great opportunity for them to build a direct connection with their audience,” added Ben Kim, who oversees business development at VHX.
Kabillion reaches more than 45 million households through providers like Comcast, Time Warner Cable, and Charter Communications. The company also operates a YouTube channel in direct partnership with YouTube.Tags: Aziz Ansari, Camp Takota, digital distribution, Digital Storefront, Direct Distribution, Kabillion, Union Square Ventures, VHX, VOD
