“We now have great opportunities to benefit from growing media consumption during the crisis, from the streaming / video-on-demand boom and new digital business models. The positive impact of our educational, non-violent and award-winning content helps to benefit children and families worldwide. Parents increasingly recognize series and games that are free of meaning and glorify violence as a problem. War is not the star for us,” said CEO of Your Family Entertainment, Stefan Piëch. https://www.digitaltveurope.com
