If you’re anything like me, by the time it gets to the second week of the school holidays the kids are bored and you’ve used up all your best entertainment material in the first week. Well if you need some new entertainment ideas then perhaps the folks over at Sky TV can help you out.
In this day and age it’s hard to pull the kids away from their tablets or smartphones (at least our daughter is hard to prise away from her devices), so Sky has partnered with Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network to create kid friendly apps. Nick Play and Cartoon Network Watch & Play are available for families that have at least the Sky Starter package and will provide Kiwi kids with access to some of their favourite games, videos, animations and shows anywhere at any time.
“We know hundreds of thousands of Kiwi kids are avid fans of both Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network,” said SKY’s Director of Entertainment Content, Travis Dunbar. “So now, not only do they have the ability to access additional content via the Apps, but can also catch up on their favourite shows on the go just because they are SKY customers.”
“As a parent myself it’s great to see the launch of both the Nick Play and Cartoon Network Watch & Play Apps in this market as they offer a safe place for kids to enjoy some of the best children’s content SKY has to offer when they’re away from home,” he said.
“SKY customers will love the extra content available on the Cartoon Network Watch and Play App,” said Robi Stanton, General Manager of Turner Australia, New Zealand and Pacific Territories.
“Together with SKY, Cartoon Network is committed to providing our fans in New Zealand new ways to connect with the world’s best animation. The App offers a truly unique and enjoyable second-screen brand experience for kids to enjoy – and for parents to trust.”
Ben Cox, Vice President and General Manager of Nickelodeon Australia and New Zealand said, “Nickelodeon has a long history of bringing the best shows and content to our Kiwi viewers and together with SKY, we’re now offering them more than ever before. The free Nick Play App provides our audiences with a safe environment to catch their favourite show from The Thundermans, to SpongeBob SquarePants and more.”
“Our dedication to constantly innovate across all of our platforms means that we can provide viewers with a different experience every time they connect with our brand,” Cox concluded.
These engaging Apps for a new generation of multi-taskers allow our youngest viewers to watch their favourite episodes and shows, and play games, in a simple and safe layout, from anywhere in New Zealand.
To get access to all of the content both apps have to offer, simply download the apps then login using your Sky TV login credentials.
