ZooMoo is an international multilanguage pay television channel owned by Singapore's Beach House Pictures and New Zealand's NHNZ. This channel was first launched in Brazil in September 2013 in high definition (HD). On 4 April 2014, ZooMoo was launched in Singapore via Starhub. In 2016, Canadian-based Blue Ant Media acquired a majority stake in the channel. The ZooMoo brand name is also used for international programming blocks broadcasting ZooMoo's original programming.
ZooMoo features puppetry, animations, games, music, puzzles and activities. Programming on the channel is a blend of in-house original productions and acquired programming such as Jelly Jamm and Miss Spider's Sunny Patch Friends.
On 25 May 2018, the channel was launched in the Philippines on Easy TV Home.
The channel launched on Virgin Media channels 295 and 739 on 21 July 2018. A temporary duplicate of the SD channel launched a day later following the removal of the UKTV network of channels, taking the slot held by Eden +1, until they returned on 11 August 2018. The SD version was removed from channel 295 a few days later. The HD channel was removed from Virgin Media on 7 January 2020. The UK channel later closed in the same year.
On 1 December 2018, a ZooMoo programming block was launched on Cignal's exclusive channel, Colours.
In Latin America, Brazil and the United States, ZooMoo is operated by AMC Networks International. Currently, the United States and Latin America share a ZooMoo feed, which is available in English and Spanish. The Brazilian feed, known as "ZooMoo Kids," features some exclusive shows produced in Brazil, and only features programming in Portuguese.
On 1 April 2020, it was launched on Zuku TV in Africa and 6 months later on DStv as a "pop-up channel" until 31 March 2021.
