Turner’s Cartoon Network has launched an app for kids in Asia. The mobile second screen app, CN Watch and Play, allows viewers to Cartoon Network series and play games from the channel’s website simultaneously.
Users must be authenticated pay TV customers. As well as the second screen element it also allows viewers to stream Cartoon content.
The free app is available in English for second generation Apple iPads. Turner said an Android version is in development.
Jeremy Carr, Turner International’s vice president of entertainment digital and syndication, Asia Pacific said: “The app provides a second screen experience with a twist. For the first time, there is a mobile platform that truly provides kids with the kind of engagement they desperately seek.”
