Following the launch of live-streaming that allows viewers to watch its content live, whenever and wherever, Cartoon Network announced Thursday that it has added an enhancement to that experience, a first-of-its-kind app for iOS that will allow kids to watch television and play games simultaneously.
CN 2.0, a new version of the Cartoon Network app, is now available on the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.
The new app includes features and content from the original video app, plus exclusive games and collectibles.
Engaging the power of the iPad, the user interface allows fans to watch videos and play games simultaneously, or swap seamlessly between the two just by rotating the device.
The iPhone and iPod touch versions include all the same content and also allows users to watch and play in the same app, although not simultaneously. The new Cartoon Network app will continue to be free to download.
“In continuing our efforts to make sure our viewers are enjoying Cartoon Network content, whenever and wherever, it is always our goal to make their experience unique and exciting,” said Stuart Snyder, president and chief operating officer for Turner’s Animation, Young Adults & Kids Media division.
Cartoon Network, a leading U.S. television network for boys 6-11, is Turner Broadcasting System, Inc.’s ad-supported cable service.
Turner Broadcasting System, Inc., a Time Warner company, creates and programs branded news, entertainment, animation and young adult media environments on television and other platforms for consumers around the world.
