PLDT HOME Telpad has partnered up with Cignal Digital TV to launch Kids TV: a feature which allows customers to stream select entertainment and learning channels to their Telpad units for an additional PHP 99 a month. Children only have to click on the HOME player widget to watch shows from Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon, Nat Geo, Nat Geo Wild, and Da Vinci Learning.
Through the Kids TV service, the first four channels will follow the same linear programming of Cignal while Da Vinci Learning will follow the video on demand (VOD) format.
“As a leader in providing world-class multimedia content, our goal is to always set the bar for family-friendly entertainment at home,” PLDT executive vice president and head of home business Ariel Fermin said. “Reinforcing and beefing up our networks and infrastructure is just the beginning of our service commitment. Ultimately, it’s about providing our subscribers with compelling content that will help them forge the strongest connections at home.”
The addition of Kids TV on Telpad follows the PLDT Group’s content partnership with The Walt Disney Company Southeast Asia, through its digital entertainment arm Disney Interactive.
PLDT vice president and head of home marketing Gary Dujali added, “This new selection of entertaining and educational content gives kids a new way to enjoy the Telpad while bonding with their parents or learning something new. In this era of high technology, Telpad with all these family-friendly content truly is the centerpiece of the digitally connected Filipino home.”
