Fuse Media has signed licensing deals to bring language learning platform, Lingopie on Telkom South Africa.

“Today’s licensing agreements signify the early innings of Fuse Media’s global expansion,” said Fuse Media head of digital, Patrick Courtney, who added: “It is also inspiring that these companies are eager to provide their customers with content that not only engages young, multicultural viewers but also empowers underserved audiences. We are both honored and excited for Fuse to be bringing this programming to an international audience.”

The partnership comes as Lingopie has made great strides since its launch in 2019. Lingopie’s innovative language-teaching model taps original film and TV content from around the world with same-language subtitles and instant translation pop-ups.
