Bing is expanding its foothold in Europe. New agreements have been signed between Acamar Films and broadcasters and licensing agents that will see Bing’s presence grow in Italy and Benelux this year. 
A new broadcast deal with RAI in Italy has brought Bing to Italian TV screens for the first time. The free to air broadcaster acquired the rights for Seasons 1 - 3 (78 episodes). RAI Yoyo premiered Bing on 18th February 2018 and following its success, the series is now airing Monday to Sunday eleven times a day.

MDL has been appointed to oversee the development of Bing in Italy. The first line of Bing merchandise is set to launch early 2019.

In addition, Acamar has signed an agreement with License Connection to represent Bing in the Benelux region. 

With over 40 broadcast partners secured worldwide, Acamar has already started to roll out its long term multi-channel content strategy. These new partners join the growing success of Bing in Poland, Spain and the UK where the series is available all year round on linear TV, SVOD service and local language YouTube channels. In Poland Canal + airs Bing on MiniMini four times a day on weekdays and twice daily on weekends. In Spain leading children’s free to air channel RTVE Clan airs a daily double bill.

Acamar has secured new broadcast partners in the Nordics, Czech Republic, Russia, South Korea and South East Asia and will be at Licensing Expo this week to meet potential licensing agents for representation of Bing in these new markets.
