Products

PlayKids TV

Launch Date2013

PlayKids TV is a kid-focused video app launched by Movile in June 2013.

PlayKids is available to anyone who has kids — or, well, anyone who loves kids content. The app is built for tablets, and for kids’ interactions with them. When you open the app, you’re introduced to a train, with a series of cars and characters riding in each one. Each character represents a different program, and when selected, they take the viewer into the car for a peek into the different videos available to them.
