New Sky Kids app update allows users to download favourite shows for offline viewing
The Sky Kids app has been updated to allow users to download content to watch offline.
From today, the Sky Kids app will allow customers with Sky Go Extra or Sky Multiscreen to download their children’s favourite television shows to watch on the go. These shows can be watched without internet access, and thus are perfect for long summer car journeys with the kids.
Sky has said they are pleased with the response to the app, which launched earlier this year. Hundreds of thousands have already downloaded Sky Kids, streaming over 15 million episodes of children’s programming.
The new update will also include a Sleep Mode feature for parents to set limits on how much time children can spend on the app, and what times they can use it. This is to help parents out with maintaining bedtime schedules and staying in control of their children.
Children will receive a five minute warning that sleep time is scheduled to occur, and five minutes later their Sky Buddy will appear on the screen to rest.
