Apr 7 16
Sky UK Limited has announced the launch of a new app for kids. The Sky Kids app will offer a fun and safe way for pre-schoolers to nine year olds 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 2016 in brand new exclusive episodes. The Sky Kids app features thousands of episodes of kids shows, including 16 of the 20 highest-rated shows, available to watch whenever and wherever they need to be entertained. To create the best possible experience, hundreds of children 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 created and personalised using one of the playful Sky Buddy avatars. Future features available later 2016 include a sleep mode setting that gives parents the ability to limit viewing time. In another step in the exciting growth of Sky's kids offer, Sky will commission its own exclusive original kids content. To start with later 2016, in partnership with Oscar-winning Aardman Animation, Sky will premiere new episodes of the legendary Morph alongside brand new short features that encourage kids to create their own characters and films at home. Discussions are already underway with other producers about future projects and there are also plans to produce kids' versions of some favourite Sky shows.
Telecom Italia Mobil and Sky UK Limited Announce New Strategic Partnership
Apr 28 15
Telecom Italia Mobile and Sky UK Limited have announced a strategic partnership which will bring fiber-optic cable TV to Italy. With this partnership, the two companies take a crucial step forward towards the so-called "convergence" between media and TLC, as the deal makes way for the first "quadruple play" offer in Italy, integrating landline and mobile services, broadband and ultra-broadband connectivity and premium television content available "anytime and anywhere" on all Internet-connected devices. The initiative strengthens TIM's strategy in distributing innovative services and confirms its role as technology enabler very high-speed networks, thus bringing more and more households closer to the very quality of content and the new modes to enjoy the Sky-branded viewing experience. Similarly, the agreement with Telecom Italia does carry a strategic meaning for Sky too, as it makes all its wide-ranging offer of programs and exclusive services available on broadband and on ultra-broadband networks as well thus extending pay TV scope to reach out, for example, those prospects who reside in the city centers of the many Italian art cities and cannot install the satellite dish and therefore access Italy's best TV offer.
