The Dreamia – Serviços de Televisão, S.A. joint venture, formed and held in equal shares by the two partners NOS (through its subsidiary NOS Lusomundo Audiovisuais) and AMC Networks International - Iberia, is the result of a strategic partnership for the production of children’s, and movies and series channels, aimed at the Portuguese market and at Portuguese-speaking African markets.

Launched on 1 December 2009, Panda Biggs is broadcasted on all Cable and Satellite digital bundles, distributed by NOS, Meo, Cabovisão and Vodafone. It is the only channel in Portugal specifically oriented for a pre-teenager audience (ages between 8 and 14).

Panda Channel is an educational thematic children channel, available on cable and IPTV. Its programming is exclusively dedicated to Portuguese children.
