UK public broadcaster the BBC has launched a pre-school version of its online catch-up service iPlayer.
CBeebies iPlayer offers children aged six years and under the chance to watch a range of programming including Timmy Time, Charlie and Lola and Kerwizz. Most programmes are available to view for a week after broadcast with some available for up to 13 weeks as series catch-ups. The service is accessible via the CBeebies website and has been designed to offer a shared experience for children and their parents. Access to programming unsuitable for pre-schoolers is restricted.
The launch follows the introduction of CBBC iPlayer, designed for six to 12 year-olds, last year.
