Zodiak Media was formed through successive acquisitions by the Italian publishing group De Agostini, the first being that of Magnolia (Italy and Spain) and Marathon (France) in 2007.
In 2008, the group re-branded itself as Zodiak Entertainment after the acquisition of Zodiak TV (Nordics, Eastern Europe, Russia).
In 2010, the company rebranded itself as Zodiak Media, following the acquisition of the RDF Media Group, one of the UK's largest independent production and distribution companies with operations in the UK and the US. Zodiak Kids (now a Banijay Group company), the group's division dedicated to kids and family programming, was created in 2014.
