Winx Fairies Fly To South Africa
Animation & Characters
Family entertainment specialist Rainbow has announced that the magic of Winx Club will appear on South African screens this month, thanks to a deal with ETV – one of the country’s leading free to air channels.
The channel is broadcasting Winx Club series five and six from July 16th and the launch will be accompanied by a massive ETV marketing campaign across TV, press and digital media.
This will add to an existing global audience of millions, who enjoy Winx Club’s signature mixture of family-friendly storylines, fashionable themes and beautiful animation. The show follows the adventures of a group of young fairies and combines action and adventure with comedy, appealing to girls from 4 to 10 right up to tween/teen.
ETV will also be running a competition, in partnership with Rainbow, that will see a few lucky fans win exclusive dolls, which will hit South African shelves from November.
“We are delighted ETV is beaming the magic of Winx Club into South African homes,” says Andrea Graciotti, Head of Sales and Co-Production at Rainbow. “The many Winx fans across the country will be thrilled to see their favourite fairies on TV!”
“OpenView HD is excited to welcome Bloom and her five best friends from The Winx Club onto eToons+ (Channel 200). The global success and following of The Winx Club is testament to the value that the brand offers. We hope that South African kids will grow to love the Winx fairies as much as the rest of the world. OpenView HD is a platform that gives South African Audiences free access to quality entertainment” say Shalamar Zandamela (OpenView HD Marketing).
