The BBC has today announced the launch of a new iPlayer Kids app that has been designed to enable kids to watch programmes from CBeebies and CBBC that are directed towards their age range.

The app is now available to download on iOS, Android and Kindle Fire devices, and will grant access to over 10,000 episodes from the broadcaster.

It will also allow the device to be shared between four seperate profiles, allowing you to specialise content towards each child, simply select the age of the progile and a character for that child and you’re good to go.

You are able to select between pre-school and over-five content.

Programmes from the app can also be downloaded over Wi-Fi, and then watched away from home for up to 30 days.

Alice Webb, director of BBC Children’s, said the following about the app:

“The BBC iPlayer Kids app meets the needs we know are absolute deal breakers for kids and parents. We’re offering, choice and control, wrapped up in a child-friendly design and the largest range of home-grown UK content on a platform parents can trust.”


The BBC iPlayer Kids app is available for download now via Apple, Google andAmazon.
