The Best 4 Features Of The Sky Kids App
Christmas can be a time of travelling for many as families rush to be together for the festive season. However, lots of travelling can also mean bored kids – something no parent wants to have to deal with!  

And while playing Yellow Reg or counting sheep can keep everyone happy for all of 10 minutes, there is something that will keep all ages amused for the entire journey!

The Sky Kids app.

Full to the brim with 4,500 episodes of your little one’s favourites like Scooby Doo, Octonauts, Peppa Pig and more, this practical app will stop kids from crying out in boredom.
From creating individual profiles to downloading shows to watch offline, the app has some really great features, many of which you may not be aware of!

1. Each child can create their very own profile

Each user can create their own profile and choose a Sky Buddy to personalise it. This is great if you have more than one child who will be using the app, as it means they’ll only be able to view content appropriate for their age-group.
2. There is a bedtime setting

This is one of the best features of the app, for sure. You can set time limits and put the app to sleep whenever you want which means you can keep your child’s screen usage under control. It’s also useful if you are heading out and need them to get ready!
3. There are Sky Buddy games to play

It’s not just about watching TV though. There are plenty of fun, creative and educational games available on the app. Handy when the little ones are all cartooned-out!

And finally,

4. Download their favourites

With Sky Multiscreen, Sky Q Multiscreen or Sky Go Extra, you can download games and shows to your device and keep them entertained absolutely anywhere, even without WiFi – which is ideal if you’re travelling by car!

The Sky Kids app offers a brilliant range of content, with practical features to ensure your kids only see appropriate content as much as you want.

Sky Kids is available to download from Google Play and the App Store. It is available for customers with the Sky Family or Variety bundle, or the Sky Kids pack.
