The BBC has launched its new BBC iPlayer Kids app, available for free on iOS and Android phones and tablets, as well as Kindle Fire.
The new child-friendly app is safe and easy to use. With over 10,000 episodes being made available this year alone, it has all of BBC Children’s content in one place, allowing kids to discover and enjoy both new and old CBeebies and CBBC favourites including Wolfblood, Blue Peter, The Dumping Ground, Topsy & Tim and Go Jetters.
The BBC iPlayer Kids app will give children even easier access to their favourite programmes, while parents can be confident they’re watching shows appropriate for their age and free from adverts.
The BBC iPlayer Kids app lets you:
Alice Webb, Director of BBC Children’s, says: “Children have always been a priority for the BBC. So launching the BBC iPlayer Kids app is a really exciting moment for us – and we can’t wait to see millions of children get excited about it too. The BBC iPlayer Kids app meets the needs we know are absolute deal-breakers for kids and parents. We’re offering choice and control, wrapped up in a child-friendly design and the largest range of home-grown UK content on a platform parents can trust. In a nutshell, the app is CBBC and CBeebies in their hands – a BBC iPlayer re-designed for a new, digitally savvy generation. It’s free of charge, free from commercial influence, and brand new today.”
Dan Taylor-Watt, Head of BBC iPlayer, added: “We know from research that parents value having a version of BBC iPlayer that’s guaranteed to be free of programming aimed at adults, and that kids love a version of iPlayer that’s designed specially with them in mind. BBC iPlayer is available on over 10,000 devices in the UK for free and we’re thrilled to launch this app so kids can enjoy their favourite shows whenever and wherever they are, in a safe and fun space, packed with amazing content.”
