Paramount Home Entertainment has picked up distribution of PBS Home Video in the U.S. and Canada. The five-year partnership--which ends PBS' 10-year distribution deal with Warner Home Video--kicks off April 5.

PBS made the switch in part due to Paramount's expertise in children's programming, according to Tracey Beeker, VP of marketing and consumer products. PBS counts children's franchises "Caillou," Sagwa the Siamese Cat" and "Teletubbies" as part of its library; Paramount distributes many popular Nickelodeon titles.
