Nickelodeon UK And Virgin Media Launch My Nick Jr. App In The UK

Nickelodeon UK has announced in the following Press Release that Nickelodeon UK, the number one commercial kids TV network in the UK, and the UK cable operator Virgin Media have teamed up to bring the "My Nick Jr. App" to the UK! The commercial-free personal programming service will be available to Virgin Media TiVo customers on TV packages L and XL from today, Thursday 27th February 2014, and will allow parents to programme a customised playlist for their preschool child.


"My Nick Jr. is a unique service in the UK delivering Nick Jr. programming to families in a format they can control," said Tina McCann, Managing Director, Nickelodeon UK & Ireland. "The wealth of Nick Jr. programming available on the app ensures that there will always be something to delight and enlighten viewers while My Nick Jr.'s interface offers parents an innovative way to guide their preschooler's viewing and to set the developmental themes that are important to them."



Dora the Explorer

"My Nick Jr." features 650 Nick Jr. UK episodes including episodes of beloved Nick Jr. UK shows such as "Dora the Explorer", "Bubble Guppies", "Tickety Toc" and "Dinosaur Train". Using the app, parents can create an individual "My Nick Jr." profile for their child. Within this profile, parents may select specific topics that they wish to make prominent in their child's "My Nick Jr." playlist as well as the duration for which they wish their child to watch Nick Jr. programming. Once a child has finished watching an episode they are asked to rate the show using the 'arrow up' or 'arrow down', via Virgin Media's TiVo remote. The Nick Jr. app learns the preferences of the child and chooses episodes to play accordingly. Through the app, parents may elect to be sent emails summarising what their children have watched and which topics have been covered within the viewed episodes.


Scott Kewley, Director of digital entertainment, Virgin Media said, "We know our TiVo families are going to love the new "My Nick Jr." app and we're delighted to be the first TV platform to launch it in the UK. It's a fantastic addition to our app line-up providing a unique TV experience where children learn while having fun watching some of their favourite shows."

Nickelodeon Russia And CIS Premieres "The Legend of Korra" Book Two: Spirits (Season 2)

Nickelodeon Russia and CIS (Nickelodeon Россия and СНГ) has announced the exciting Nickelodeon International news on their official website, nickelodeon.ru, that Nick Russia and CIS started to show episodes from season two of Nickelodeon's hit original animated series (Nicktoon) "The Legend of Korra", called "Book Two: Spirits" today, Sunday 23rd February 2014, at 4:50pm (16:50)! Nickelodeon Russia and CIS will continue to premiere all-new episodes of "Legend of Korra" season two, locally titled "Легенда о Корре", every weekend at 4:50pm.

Leading up to the debut of "Book 2: Spirits", Nickelodeon Russia and CIS aired a special "Legend of Korra" recap marathon featuring episodes from the first season of the show, "Book 1: Air", from 11:50am on Sunday 23rd February 2014, which led up to the debut of "Book 2" at 4:50pm:
Корра возвращается!

Новые выпуски «Легенда о Корре» - с 23 февраля!
[...]

Вы ждали этой премьеры так долго! Вы знали, что Она вернется … Новые выпуски сериала «Легенда о Корре» - с 23 февраля по выходным в 16:50 на Nickelodeon! Чтобы вспомнить предыдущую историю девушки-воина, смотрите марафон Корры 23 февраля с 11:50 (Мск)!

Действие сериала «Аватар: Легенда о Корре» разворачивается через 70 лет после окончания Столетней Войны. Новое государство Объединенная республика и его процветающая столица Республиканский город были основаны как место, где маги и не-маги могут жить в мире и согласии. Но даже в этом райском месте не обходится без проблем – и новый Аватар, энергичная девушка по имени Корра, скоро в этом убедится.


Еще маленькой девочкой Корра прекрасно контролировала силу четырех элементов – но лишь физически. А вот с духовным контролем все обстоит несколько хуже: девушка слишком уверена в себе, неусидчива и эмоциональна. Несмотря на это, она доказала своим наставникам, что мастерски овладела магией воды, огня и земли, и готова продолжать обучение. Для этого она отправится в столицу и поступит в ученицы к одному из немногих оставшихся магов Воздуха – Тензину, сыну Аанга.

Поначалу город кажется ей поразительным – большие здания, множество машин и люди, так непохожие на всех ее знакомых! Но жизнь в столице имеет и обратную сторону. Совсем скоро девушка столкнется с рэкетирами, которых нужно проучить, и органами правопорядка, которые отнюдь не рады разрушениям, устроенным Коррой во время схватки с бандитами. Кроме того, юной воительнице предстоит узнать о существовании «уравнителей», довольно агрессивно настроенных по отношению к магам, и их предводителе – загадочном Амоне.


Зрителей ждет сезон, наполненных приключениями, магией и великолепной боевой хореографией. В Америке «Легенда о Корре» стала самой рейтинговой анимационной премьерой Nickelodeon за последние три года: на данный момент его аудитория насчитывает 29 миллионов зрителей. Недавно канал объявил о начале работ над вторым сезоном сериала, а это значит, что в ближайшем будущем поклонники саги смогут продолжить следить за приключениями героини-бунтарки.
