Sky Austria makes kids app free to all

Sky’s Austrian unit has made the Sky Kids app available free of charge to all contract customers. The app was previously reserved for those with a subscription to the Sky Entertainment package.

The app is available to all customers on I OS and Android devices, offering access to a selection of content.

Sky Q customers will see a new ‘kids mode’ activated on their boxes, providing a PIN-protected kids user interface that enables content available via the box to be restricted to children’s shows. The kids mode remains active even if the box is switched off , and can only be deactivated by re-entering the PIN.

Julia Laukemann, SVP of product management at the pay TV operator said that the app provided a simple, child-friendly environment high-quality content  and enabled kids to have access to selected programmes.
