TVOKids launches on Bell Mobile TV

TORONTO, Nov. 6, 2013 /CNW/ - TVO and Bell today announced the launch of 
TVOKids on Bell Mobile TV, making TVO's fun and educational children's 
television programs accessible nationally on Bell smartphones and tablets. 
The TVOKids channel on Bell Mobile TV will offer live and on-demand access to 
popular shows such as Dino Dan, Finding Stuff Out, Giver, Making Stuff, as 
well as TVOKids-produced in-house programs from Gisèle's Big Back Yard, 
TVOKids' early learning programming block, and The Space, TVOKids' afterschool 
"TVO is delighted to make TVOKids' exceptional educational programs available 
on Bell Mobile TV," says TVO's Chief Executive Officer Lisa de Wilde. "Making 
their favourite programs available to early learners on a multitude of devices 
enables parents, teachers and students to access smart and trusted educational 
tools inside and outside the classroom. The partnership with Bell also allows 
us to reach new audiences while respecting the taxpayers' investment in TVO." 
"TVOKids is one of Canada's most respected children's media brands and we are 
excited to make it part of the widest variety of live and on-demand TV 
programming on smartphones and tablets with Bell Mobile TV," said Wade 
Oosterman, President of Bell Mobility. 
Parents choose TVOKids because all programs are based on the Ontario school 
curriculum and are parent and teacher tested. In an Ipsos Reid poll, Ontarians 
rated TVOKids both the "most trusted" and "most educational" children's media 
brand in Canada. 
Last month, Bell welcomed its one millionth subscriber to Bell Mobile TV, the 
breakthrough wireless data service that offers on-the-go access to more than 
40 channels of live and on-demand sports, news, entertainment and children's 
TV programming. 10 hours of Bell Mobile TV viewing is available as part of 
many Bell Mobility plans or as a $5 a month add-on, without affecting the 
customer's data allotment in their plan.
