Streamers Kidoodle.TV and Roku are among the latest outlets to have picked up unscripted content from London- and Sydney-based sales house Beyond Distribution.

The Roku Channel in the UK has acquired seasons five and six of Emmy-nominated science entertainment show MythBusters, which first aired on Discovery Channel in 2003.

Children’s ad-supported VoD service Kidoodle.TV and fellow kids’ streamer Ameba both acquired 50-hour package deals for titles including CBBC duo Numberjacks and Get Squiggling and ABC Australia’s Milly Molly.

Endemol Shine Group has secured 100 hours of content for its AVoD channels, which include Fresh Lifestyle and Reel Truth, taking seasons one to five of STV’s Animal 999 and seasons one to three of RTÉ’s You Should Really See a Doctor.

In addition, digital content studio and broadcaster Little Dot Studios has taken a package of 28.5 hours, including standalone BBC documentary Jane Austen: Behind Closed Doors (1×60’).
