Want to watch an episode of Benjamin the Elephant or Bibi Blocksberg before bed? The new app, Kidsbox.tv, brings the popular cartoon series to smartphones and tablets for the first time ever – and it doesn’t even cost anything. Initially, the episodes will be available in Turkish and Polish.
Kids can now enjoy over 100 adventures of the famous talking elephant and the little cheeky witch via stream at any time. One episode takes 26 minutes. ‘The first kids to enjoy the new, mobile television, will be those who understand Turkish or Polish’ says Eugen Barteska, who together with his team at b-interaktive has made the classic cartoon series available on mobile for the first time ever. The developers already have their sights set on additional cartoon series – also in German.
Thanks to advertising funding, which users are already familiar with via YouTube, the series are free. At launch, the mobile television for kids will be available on the Android platform; versions for Apple and Smart TVs will follow depending on a demand.
Since 2011, b-interaktive has been raising the bar in the international mobile business. Today, 30 employees work to develop mobile solutions in Schwerte in the Ruhr region, Germany, and at a branch in Poland. They developed the entire infrastructure that enables streaming for Kidsbox.tv. The young company relies on renowned partners; for example, with Bibi and Benjamin, Kiddinx Media GmbH integrates its own cartoon series and markets the TV rights worldwide.
Besides cartoons, b-interaktive brings games and apps to smartphones and tablets; the latest, free Ludo LIVE, connects players all around the world.
