The BBC has launched its CBeebies iPlayer. The specially designed child-friendly BBC iPlayer offers children six years old and under the chance to watch a selection of children's programming. Designed to be a shared and flexible online experience with parents, the new service follows the launch of the popular CBBC iPlayer last year for six to 12-year-olds. Through the CBeebies website, the service is designed to restrict inadvertent access to non-children’s programming and puts children’s viewing priorities first. Most programmes will be available to view for a week after broadcast with some available for up to 13 weeks as “series catch ups”.
