Australian pay-TV operator Foxtel has unveiled an app for children and families to stream and download their favourite shows on-demand and uninterrupted by advertising.

Foxtel Kids logoThe new app, launched to coincide with Australia’s summer holidays, offers the ability of off-line viewing of downloaded content, to help occupy passengers during long drives, flights or holidays spent away from internet connections. Parents can set a time limit for watching the app and to select classifications between G and PG ratings for age appropriate viewing.

“We’re delighted to bring our new Foxtel Kids app to Australian kids and families. After taking on board some great customer feedback coupled with our own research, we’ve designed what we think is the best app to keep kids entertained and parents informed; and, with the Christmas holidays just a few weeks away, it couldn’t come at a better time,” said Deanne Weir, managing director of content aggregation and wholesale, Foxtel.

The VOD app, available from the Apple App Store and Google Play, features content from major kids brands including Nickelodeon, Nick Jr, Disney Channel, Disney Junior, Disney XD, CBeebies, Discovery Kids, Cartoon Network and Boomerang.

It is available to Foxtel and Foxtel Play customers who subscribe to the Foxtel Kids pack at no extra charge. The app can be registered to five devices and can be used simultaneously by two users. Downloaded programmes are available to view for 31 days.
