YouTube Kids added to next-gen Freesat

Freesat has announced the addition of YouTube Kids to its new generation 4K TV boxes and library of apps.

The app is aimed at children under 13, and in the five years its been around, YouTube Kids has become one of the most popular children’s apps in the market.

It offers a range of choice from trusted channels and covers genres such as arts and crafts, sports, music and educational videos, plus cartoons and nursery rhymes.

In a statement issued by Freesat, managing director Alistair Thom noted how he felt the launch of YouTube Kids was well-timed. He said :

“In addition to expanding even further the range of content on offer, this launch seems especially relevant at a moment when so many parents are juggling the demands of keeping their children entertained and educated with their own work. YouTube Kids provides something for everyone.”
