This June, some of the most-loved children’s channels will have a new home with the new NOW TV Kids Pass. That means more Dora the Explorer and plenty of Paw Patrol without a contract, all for just £2.99 a month.
With SpongeBob SquarePants, Ben Ten, Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles and loads more, there’s plenty for you and your child to enjoy. From 21 June, the NOW TV Kids Pass will have live TV from Nickelodeon, Nick Jr, Nicktoons, Boomerang, Cartoon Network and Cartoonito. There are also thousands of episodes and box sets available on demand for your child to get stuck into, so there’ll always be time for their favourite show…as long as it’s before bed time!
And after getting input from parents and kids, our new user interface (UI) is designed to be fun for younger viewers, but also has a level of parental controls for adults to use. This way, you can let them enjoy their favourite shows…without them enjoying yours!
The Kids Pass will feature loads of new tools to make life as easy as possible, including:
A new user interface with newly designed characters in a fun space-themed environment, guiding the user through their viewing.
Picture led navigation to keep things as simple as possible. So shows and episodes are identified by characters, so the user can get to the TV they want, when they want it.
New episode auto-play so they can straight into the next episode when the last episode finishes – so no looking for the remote!
A favourites rail so we can find out your little ones' favourite shows, getting them straight to the shows they love.
Parental controls, complete with Parental PINs to set age-rated restrictions, a screen lock to stop little fingers accidentally changing shows on a mobile or tablet, and an 'escape prompt' to stop kids leaving the user interface by mistake.. In other words, no accidental drifting into unsuitable content!
The launch of the NOW TV Kids Pass sees Nickelodeon, Nick Jr and The Disney Channel move out of the NOW TV Entertainment Pass on 21 June, 2016.
In addition, from today Nat Geo Wild will be added as a new channel to the Entertainment Pass, which will continue to offer exclusive access to shows such as Game of Thrones and must see new show Billions on Sky Atlantic, 11.22.63 on FOX, and Harlan Coben’s The Five on Sky1. Not to mention over 250 Box Sets ranging from Sex and The City, Revenge, Penny Dreadful and True Detective.
