AT&T has launched U-verse KIDS! In the US – a new smartphone and tablet app from AT&T U-verse that displays kid-friendly TV channels and remote controls.
Children can tune the TV directly to programmes displayed on the U-verse KIDS! app with easy-to-use remote control buttons. The buttons display TV programmes currently airing. Kids can select a programme and the TV will automatically tune to it. The app also lets kids pause, fast forward or rewind live TV. The app uses colourful icons, easy-to-use buttons, and also “reads” programme names aloud using patented AT&T Natural Voices text-to-speech technology.
“Kids love to grab the remote control and look for their favourite shows. Children can now find what they’re looking for in an easy and fun way, and parents have peace of mind with safe channel surfing,” said Mel Coker, chief marketing officer, AT&T Home Solutions. “U-verse KIDS! is a great example of how we’re bringing together our mobile and TV platforms to deliver a better experience for U-verse customers.”
