Viu, a leading pan-regional OTT multi-screen video service by PCCW Media Group, announced that it is expanding its extensive range of premium Korean, Hong Kong, Japanese and Thai entertainment with the launch of a new kids’ animation content category for two to eight-year-olds.
With its expanded foray into kids’ programming, Viu will provide even more value to its members, especially those with young children, as a one-stop entertainment platform by bringing popular kids’ content that the whole family can enjoy.
Anson Tan, General Manager of Viu Singapore shared that “It has become a worrying trend on how kids today engage with online content. With our newly-added family-friendly content for kids, we hope to give parents peace of mind and convenience with features such as unlimited downloads* for convenient offline viewing anytime, anywhere. By making all our kids content downloadable*, parents just need to save their children’s favourite animation shows onto their mobile devices before leaving home for around-the-clock entertainment while on-the-go.”
Viu will be releasing a variety of popular Asian and Western animations onto its platform, with more titles to be added frequently in subsequent months.
Among the top choice selections that are sure to delight both kids and their parents are China’s ‘Hello! Punebela’, Korea’s ‘Baby Shark Remixes’, ‘Rainbow Ruby’ and ‘Robocar Poli’, and ‘Ready Jet Go!’ and ‘Zou’ from the United States and France respectively. While all animation comes with English audio, Mandarin audio and English subtitles will be made available for selected show titles at a later date.
With the option to project content from the small screen to the big screen by casting videos from their mobile devices onto TV displays via Apple Airplay or Google Chromecast*, parents can keep kids entertained with their favourite content on mobile devices while on-the-go and enjoy a seamless watching experience on TV** when at home.
From popular dramas for mom to the latest movies and variety shows for dad, there is now something for everyone in the family, even the little ones, to enjoy on Viu with the addition of popular edutainment animation that provides engaged learning, encourages imagination, and teaches important values and life skills for kids.
