Italian pay-tv DTH (Direct-To-Home) satellite television provider – Sky Italia has launched their children’s television VOD (Video-on-demand) mobile app called Sky Kids.

Animated shows available to stream on the app include Cartoon Network’s Adventure Time, The Powerpuff Girls and Ben 10 and Boomerang’s Tom and Jerry and Scooby-Doo. Just like the UK version, the app allows the user to personalise their experience using the app with custom profiles and has a download and play feature, so kids can watch shows on the go without the need of an internet connection.

Alongside Turner’s Cartoon Network and Boomerang, the app also has children’s content from Disney, Nickelodeon and DeaKids. The app is free for Sky customers who are subscribed to the Sky Family Pack or the Sky Children pack and is available for iPad and Android tablets.
