LONDON -- BT has entered into an agreement with popular children’s entertainers, The Wiggles, to bring their educational entertainment show to BT Vision Kids.

Available from December 2, the BT Vision Kids channel will feature The Wiggles television show on demand and six specials. BT Vision is the only service where children will have on demand access to The Wiggles through their TV.

Under the terms of the deal, viewers will be able to watch, pause or rewind Jeff, Anthony, Murray, Sam and their Wiggly friends Dorothy the Dinosaur, Captain Feathersword, Wags the Dog and Henry the Octopus whenever they want.

BT Vision is partnering with The Wiggles on the eve of the group’s 20th Birthday. Formed in 1991, The Wiggles still perform to more than a million people a year, across 200 shows and have sold more than 30 million DVDs and CDs worldwide. The popular kid’s entertainers have no signs of slowing down with a 15-city UK tour already confirmed for 2011.
