Lucy Murphy, Director of Kids Content, UK & ROI at Sky, said “We know how much kids love watching KIDZ BOP on Sky, and how disappointed their fans were when COVID-19 meant that they would not be able to see the KIDZ BOP Kids live on tour in 2020. I’m so delighted that Sky Kids could film a special concert for all Sky viewers and that 150 Sky VIP families were able to join in for the virtual audience!”
KIDZ BOP partners with Sky Kids to bring its videos into the homes of millions of Sky’s viewers in the UK. Young fans can access additional KIDZ BOP content on the Sky Kids platform including music videos, dance-alongs, holiday specials, KIDZ BOP Workshop, and the new fitness series, ‘KIDZ BOP Presents: MOVE IT!’ with Max & Ashton, exclusively on Sky Kids. In this fitness series, kids can follow Max and Ashton through 20 five-minute episodes of easy-to-follow home workout exercises, from different levels of stretching, strength, cardio, movement, and cool down.
This announcement comes on the heels of the release of ‘KIDZ BOP All-Time Greatest Hits,’ the brand’s eighth UK album, which features today’s biggest global pop hits, sung by kids for kids.
