Sky Launches Brand New App Packed Full of Amazing Content Just For Kids

Official Sky Press Release via RegularCapital.com:

SKY LAUNCHES BRAND NEW APP PACKED FULL OF AMAZING CONTENT JUST FOR KIDS

Sky is launching a brand new app tomorrow just for kids and at no extra cost to millions of Sky families. The Sky Kids app will offer a fun and safe way for preschoolers to nine year olds to enjoy the widest range of the most popular kids TV programmes including Nick Jr.'s Paw Patrol, Boomerang's Scooby Doo, CBeebies' Octonauts and Cartoon Network's Adventure Time. And they will soon be joined by children’s TV legend Morph, who is set to make his debut on the Sky Kids app later this year in brand new exclusive episodes.


The Sky Kids app features thousands of episodes of kids shows, including 16 of the 20 highest-rated shows, available to watch whenever and wherever they need to be entertained.

To create the best possible experience, hundreds of children and their parents have been involved in the development of the Sky Kids app. The result is an app that kids will love, supported by safety features that parents need. At launch, the Sky Kids app allows multiple age-appropriate profiles to be created and personalised using one of the playful Sky Buddy avatars. Future features available later this year include a sleep mode setting that gives parents the ability to limit viewing time.


In another step in the exciting growth of Sky's kids offer, Sky will commission its own exclusive original kids content. To start with later this year, in partnership with Oscar-winning Aardman Animation, Sky will premiere new episodes of the legendary Morph alongside brand new short features that encourage kids to create their own characters and films at home. Discussions are already underway with other producers about future projects and there are also plans to produce kids' versions of some favourite Sky shows.

Lucy Murphy, Head of Kids Content, Sky commented: "We have worked really closely with lots of children and their parents to design the new Sky Kids app. It means they can watch all their favourite shows in a really engaging way designed just for them. Safety is of fundamental importance so parents will be able to filter what their child watches according to their age.


"Having lots of great shows for kids has always really mattered to us. Around a quarter of Sky households have children so we know how important it is we give them the very best kids entertainment. That is why we are investing in exclusive new programming starting with family favourite Morph as well as developing future enhancements for the app including even more safety features, live channels and offline viewing."

Alix Wiseman, Head of Sales and Acquisitions & Executive Producer, Aardman commented: "Aardman and the creators of Morph are truly excited about partnering with Sky on this original content for their new app. Morph is very dear to our hearts and we hope that he and his mate Chas will entertain a brand new generation of viewers on this platform, as they have their loyal fan-base over the past four decades."

The app has been created by Sky's inhouse team together with ustwo, the digital product studio behind hit mobile game Monument Valley – winner of Apple's 2014 Design Award, iPad game of the year and two BAFTAs.


The app will ensure Sky remains the best entertainment choice for children and their parents. Sky TV families can already watch over 4,000 episodes of the most watched kids shows on demand through a dedicated Sky Kids tile on the home page as well as the widest range of live children's channels including Disney Jr, Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon.


The launch of the Sky Kids app comes as new research shows that growing numbers of children are watching TV on mobile devices with 80% having access to a tablet at home. Sky's own research also shows that although 70% of parents think that TV in moderation is entertaining and educational, almost 60% of parents with children aged 3 to 12 are worried about the types of programmes they are watching [1]. This has meant that building features such as age-appropriate filtering has been a key priority during the development process.

Notes to Editors:

* Sky Kids is available to download from both Google Play and Apple's App Store from Thursday 31 March 2016. The app will work on 3G/4G and WiFi and is available for customers with the Sky Family or Variety bundle or Sky Q.

* Sky announced the development of the app with ustwo in June 2015 as it aimed to build on its position as the best entertainment service for children and their parents. Sky's commitment saw the expansion of the kids' shows available in Sky's on demand library from 700 to 4,000 episodes making Sky home to more episodes of the most-watched kids' shows than any other provider in the UK and Ireland.

Following the on demand investment, a dedicated kids tile was added to the Sky homepage which opens up a one-stop-shop of all the kids shows and movies available on demand, all kids TV recordings, plus a quick view of what's on now on linear channels like CBeebies and Nick Jr. Since the kids tile was added in Summer 2015, on demand views have increased five times.

Sky's Kids service is now being overseen by Sky's first dedicated Head of Kids Content, Lucy Murphy, who joined Sky in November 2015.

About Morph
Morph is the animated clay character who made his TV debut in 1977 in the children's BBC programme Take Hart. He was created and produced for the BBC by Aardman Animations.

Morph lived in a wooden pencil box on the desk of the artist and show host, Tony Hart, and appeared mainly in one minute "shorts" interspersed throughout the show. These were connected to the main show by having Hart deliver a line or two to Morph who would reply in gobbledygook but with meaningful gestures. Later on, Morph was joined by cream-coloured Chas, who was much more badly behaved. Morph was a regular fixture on children's television throughout the 70s and 80s, and received his own Blue Peter badge on 9th March 1981, when Blue Peter presenter Sarah Greene visited the Aardman studios.

In March 2009, shortly after Hart's death, a flashmob of Morph models gathered in London outside the Tate Modern art gallery.

Almost 40 years after his TV debut, Morph made a comeback following a hugely successful campaign on the Kickstarter crowdfunding website. The episodes launched on Morph's dedicated YouTube channel for a whole new generation of fans to enjoy.

Melissa Joan Hart In Talks To Reboot "Clarissa Explains It All" And/Or "Sabrina the Teenage Witch"

'90s lovers have had a lot to celebrate in recent years. The (best ever) era's resurgence includes shows such as Nickelodeon's Legends of the Hidden Temple and Hey Arnold!, giving new life to iconic shows.


Now, two more '90s shows are being considered for a reboot: Clarissa Explains It All and/or Sabrina the Teenage Witch might be returning to the small screen.

During an appearance on FABLife on Tuesday 29th March 2016, quintessential '90s girl Melissa Joan Hart (former star of both of the shows, now 39) broke the news that she was on her way to a meeting that very day to discuss the future of both Clarissa and Sabrina, their rights, and reboot potential!:

"Umm, I am going to a meeting after this," she bashfully spilled, "They're throwing around Clarissa and Sabrina ideas, but it depends on who's gonna give up rights, who's gonna do it, how is it gonna be done, it's a lot of politics."

Hart was sure to include that the shows were nowhere near solidified, so fans can't be 100 percent sure that either of them will be making a comeback. On the bright side, a meeting is a meeting - if there were no interest, there probably wouldn't be a meeting at all.

Melissa also posted an Instagram response:

Bleak British Parents Are Suffering From A 'Laughter Deficit', New Research Reveals

Bleak British parents are suffering from a 'laughter deficit' - with half of parents chuckling just once or less, a day, according to new research conducted by shopping centre owner, intu, as part of their partnership with Nickelodeon UK.


Two out of three parents (66 per cent) say laughter is a stress-reliever and 28 per cent say keeping the kids entertained is a source of anxiety.

Four in five parents say laughing makes them feel 'happier in general' while 41 per cent said chuckling was good for their love life.

And fun family activities came in just behind laughter as a stress-reliever at 55 per cent.

More than two out of three parents with kids under 16 (69 per cent) say their children make them laugh the most, with just under three-quarters (71 per cent) saying their share a giggle with their kids at least once a day.

intu surveyed 2,000 participants for their research.


Psychologist Emma Kenny, who analysed the research findings, said: "The wonderful thing about young children is their ability to experience the here and now, which enables them to react to life moment by moment.

"Adults are often struggling with their work life balance, or focussing on things they need to do next, which impacts on their time and the opportunity to have fun and laugh at life.

"It's so essential for adults to laugh with children and each other as it unites, inspires and reminds us of how wonderful it is to be human.

"With millions of us taking time off this Easter to spend more time with our children, it is a brilliant time to focus on all the joy and laughter being a parent can bring us.

"Plan ahead by finding those opportunities to laugh and spend quality time together as a family, so that they can become part of your daily routine."

As laughter truly is the 'best medicine', the shopping centre owner is launching SpongeBob-themed 'laughter parties' for families over Easter.

Intu will be hosting SpongeBob SquarePants' Laughter Party at intu shopping centres over Easter with a range of free family friendly activities that are not to be missed.

In addition to the activities on offer, kids that visit a SpongeBob SquarePants' Laughter Party may receive a free limited-edition SpongeBob Magazine full of games, puzzles and jokes. Families can also enter an online competition to win an exclusive family trip to Nickelodeon Land at Blackpool Pleasure Beach.

Trevor Pereira, from intu, said: "This research highlights the difference that intu brings to its shopping centres, with compelling, fun experiences and moments of surprise, delight and laughter. Our aim is to put a smile on the face of our customers as we want them to be happier when they leave our centres than when they walked through the door.

"So with millions of families expected at our centres this Easter, we've created an exciting programme of activities in partnership with Nickelodeon for parents and children to laugh along together with SpongeBob SquarePants."
