Sesame Workshop teams up with HBO

Sesame Workshop — the non-profit organisation behind Sesame Street — has formed a new partnership with cable network HBO, which will make the next five seasons of Sesame Street available on HBO and its multiplex channels, HBO GO, HBO On Demand and the new internet-only SVOD service HBO NOW.

As a key part of the deal, Sesame Street will be able to produce almost twice as much new content as previous seasons, and make the show available free of charge to PBS and its member stations after a nine-month window.

“Our new partnership with HBO represents a true winning public-private partnership model,” comments Jeffrey D. Dunn, Sesame Workshop’s CEO. “It provides Sesame Workshop with the critical funding it needs to be able to continue production of Sesame Street and secure its nonprofit mission of helping kids grow smarter, stronger and kinder; it gives HBO exclusive pay cable and SVOD access to the nation’s most important and historic educational programming; and it allows Sesame Street to continue to air on PBS and reach all children, as it has for the past 45 years.”
