nexGTv releases immersive fairy tale videos by GivingTales based on classics by H.C. Andersen

New Delhi, February 23, 2016: An immersive world full of tales that test children’s imagination and uniquely nurture creativity within them – that was the principle behind the inception of fairy tales. Bringing this vibrant world closer to kids is nexGTv, India’s largest subscription-led video entertainment app. It has associated with GivingTales Kft, an illustrative fairy tale narration platform backed by Sir Roger Moore. As part of the association, nexGTv will now feature Hans Christian Andersen’s classic fairy tales with voice-overs provided by legendary actors including Dame Joan Collins, Charlotte Rampling, Stephen Fry, Sir Michael Caine, and Sir Roger Moore himself.

GivingTales is an initiative by Sir Roger Moore with an aim to offer a collection of well-curated fairy tales for kids across the globe. Sir Roger Moore is also the Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF (United Nation International Children’s Education Funds) and the initiative has pledged to donate 30% of its revenues to the program for betterment of children across the globe. The featured stories revolve around popular folklore that beautifully encompasses a world full of fantasy and surrealism. Adding to the overall essence of the stories is the fact that they are narrated by fabled artists who have been known to be great contributors for children’s causes.

Commenting on the association, Abhesh Verma, COO, nexGTv, said, “Every grown up person has a special association with fairy tales, something that modelled their imagination during childhood. They are popular for increasing curiosity and fascination amongst kids and often provide a sense of motivation during hardship and despair. Capturing the brilliance of these childhood fantasies in well-illustrated videos are the premium GivingTales stories which can now be availed through our platform. With a long list of legendary celebrities including Sir Roger Moore, Stephen Fry, and Sir Michael Caine narrating the spell-binding stories for kids, we are sure that this world-class experience will be a big hit with our users.”

The videos will be available to nexGTv users across the globe excluding China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau. They can be seamlessly viewed on nexGTv’s mobile applications (available on both Android and iOS platforms) or through the platform’s website
