Streaming platform Rakuten TV has strengthened its children and family offering with the launch of two new channels.

The video-on-demand service added the LEGO® channel in the UK and Planeta Junior TV in Spain as part of its free, ad-supported streaming television (FAST) channel expansion.

These new channels add to the high-quality content available on the platform for the whole family to enjoy together, from films, TV shows and animations, to educational content, games and tutorials to unleash children's creativity. Kids and Family content on Rakuten TV also includes the platform's own curated channel, Family - Rakuten TV, featuring popular TV shows such as 'Wallace and Gromit' and 'Shaun the Sheep', and further branded channels including Brat TV, Cool School, DuckTV and Happykids. The company anticipates additions to be rolled out in this category in the coming weeks.
