Sony Pictures Television Networks (SPTN) has unveiled a new mobile app brand POP FUN, featuring digital content for its portfolio of kids’ channels POP, Tiny Pop and POP MAX.

SPTN 14dec2017The app brings together shows, games, galleries and competitions from SPTN’s three networks and will be available on iOS and Android devices acting as a free, one-stop digital destination. The company promises that kids will be able to find their favourite shows as easily as if holding a remote control.

Suitable for boys and girls aged there to ten, POP FUN will feature a range of shows on demand including Power Rangers Dino Super Charge, LEGO Nexo Knights, Zak Storm, PJ Masks, Rabbids Invasion, Miffy’s Adventures Big and Small and Alvinnn!!! And the Chipmunks.

From launch, kids will also be able to get creative with POP FUN’s exclusive Artpad, a creative drawing tool which includes colour-ins and stickers of their favourite characters; and interact with specially created games including Match-Up and Spot the Difference. POP FUN also allows parents to submit birthday mentions for their children to be featured on TV within the Tiny Pop Birthdays video.

The app, created in partnership with creative agency Jollywise, is said to have been developed to be a safe space and provides customisation and personalisation features, to ensure a safe environment for children. Profile customisation allows users to select their age and favourite channel which then filters appropriate content.

Commenting on the launch, Kate Marsh, executive vice president, Western Europe, Sony International Networks, said: “With more and more children turning to tablets and mobile apps to engage with their favourite content, we are hugely excited to be launching this app to further champion our already successful kid’s portfolio in the UK. Now kids and parents will be able to engage with and enjoy their favourite content on all types of screens - on TV, mobile and tablet, at home and on-the-go.”
