Amazon-owned Netflix rival LoveFilm has announced a slew of fresh children’s shows from NBCUniversal, available on its Instant streaming service.

Now, you can find Curious George and Barbie: Princess Charm School, The Land Before Time, Maisy, and Rastamouse.

“From talking to our members we know there is a real demand for top quality entertainment for younger viewers, so we are delighted to add such great shows to our already vast library of kids content,” says Simon Morris, Chief Marketing Officer at LoveFilm.

This follows from LoveFilm’s partnership with NBCUniversal International TV Distribution earlier this year, which saw on-demand access given to some big-name American TV shows, such as the US version of The Office and 30 Rock.
