Sky have launched a brand new app just for kids and at no extra cost to hundreds of thousands of Sky families across Ireland.
The Sky Kids app will be available to all customers on the Variety bundle and will offer a fun and safe way to enjoy the widest range of the most popular kids TV programmes including Nick Jr.’s Paw Patrol, Boomerang’s Scooby Doo, CBeebies’ Octonauts and Cartoon Network’s Adventure Time. And they will soon be joined by children’s TV legend Morph, who is set to make his debut on the Sky Kids app later this year in brand new exclusive episodes.
The Sky Kids app features thousands of episodes of some of the most popular kid’s shows for pre-schoolers to nine year olds, available to watch whenever and wherever they need to be entertained.
To create the best possible experience, hundreds of kids and their parents have been involved in the development of the Sky Kids app. The result is an app that kids will love, supported by safety features that parents need. At launch, the Sky Kids app allows multiple age-appropriate profiles to be personalised using one of the playful Sky Buddy avatars. Future features available later this year include a sleep mode setting that gives parents the ability to limit viewing time.
Why do we love Sky Kids App?
1. Designed for Kids
The interface looks really colourful and fun, but most importantly it’s really easy to use, with options to scroll, swipe and tap.
2. Easy to Use
Once mom or dad have set up the profile, the app itself is super easy to use. Kids can browse their favourite characters and channels all by themselves.
3. Individual Profiles
Tailored specifically to the child’s age, the profile will show programmes that are suitable to each individual child, meaning they will always be able to find shows they will enjoy.
4. A Safe Space
There is no fear of your child accidentally clicking on a programme that isn’t suitable, as the Sky Kids App only contains children’s content.
5. Bedtime Wind Down
You can tell the app what time your child goes to bed, so that 10 minutes before bedtime, the app will start giving your child a little bedtime warning, with their little sky buddy starting to yawn. Meaning no more arguments at bedtime!
Sky Kids is available to download from both Google Play and Apple’s App Store from Thursday 31 March 2016.
