Cartoon Network adds live streaming video for authenticated iOS users
Cartoon Network, the number one television network for U.S. boys age 6-11, will soon start streaming live feeds of its programming on iOS devices to those authenticated and satellite subscribers. The Turner Broadcasting System owned network announced this during its advertising Upfronts on Tuesday. This is when advertisers commit their ad spending for the upcoming fall television season and with the potential of more viewers watching, higher advertising rates can be charged.
"It is our commitment to the TV Everywhere strategy to let our audiences enjoy our shows whenever and wherever they want. Soon, viewers will be able to catch Cartoon Network anywhere and everywhere-whether they are in front of their television or maybe even at the airport waiting for a flight, we will be available for viewers to experience the live telecast seamlessly."-Stuart Snyder, president and COO, Turner Broadcasting's Animation, Young Adults & Kids Media
The Cartoon Network feed is similar to the WATCH ESPN live feed from Disney for iOS and Android that was added to last week with the WATCH Disney, WATCH Disney Jr. and WATCH Disney HD apps that are available to authenticated Comcast customers using an iOS or Android device. Non-authenticated users of the Watch Disney series of streaming video will be able to view a limited number of on-demand programs each month.
"We are excited to team with Comcast to be the first in the industry to offer authenticated products that provide both live linear streams of our Disney-branded kids television services and a robust selection of episodes on demand to viewers who verify their subscriptions. Our company prides itself on being at the forefront of innovation, and we are dedicated to continually enhancing the overall viewing experience for our consumers, as well as adding value to our industry's ecosystem."- David Preschlack, executive vice president, Disney and ESPN Media Networks affiliate sales and marketing
