Sky Kids TV app in the works

Sky is working with Monument Valley developer usTwo on a new Kids TV app, designed to take on the likes of Netflix and Google.

The app is still a work in progress, but Sky has already signed up major children’s TV players such as Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network and Disney.

While Sky is keen to talk up the ‘intuitive and playful experience’ it offers little 'uns, parents will probably be more pleased to know that their kids will be protected by a number of controls over what they can watch on an iPhone or iPad.

As well as a filter for controlling what can be watched and the ability to scroll back through programmes viewed, a bedtime mode will turn the app off when it comes to lights out.

The application is likely to work across Android as well as iOS and is set to launch early in 2016. However, it’s thought that users will require a subscription to its wonder pay TV package to get involved.
