NOTE: The following giveaway is open to Canadians only.
Shaw Communications Inc. recently announced the release of three additional Shaw Go kids apps exclusively available to Shaw Cable and Shaw Direct subscribers. Designed with kids in mind, these new apps will provide kids and parents alike with access to popular children’s shows including, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Austin & Ally and Mighty Med. Shaw Go Family, Shaw Go Disney XD and Shaw Go Disney Junior are available for download now on iOS and Android devices.
We all experience those times when a “patented kid distraction” is called for. Sometimes, it comes in the form of a snack, or a colouring book, and more often than not – with our little technical geniuses – it means we have to whip out a tablet or phone and cue up some on-demand entertainment. My boys are the perfect candidates for Shaw Go Disney Junior, which allows kids to watch their favourite shows from the Disney Junior network. It utilizes a character-driven carousel and easy-to-navigate display perfect for children ages 2-7. (Then again, my boys can figure out practically any electronic gadget, so the navigation is actually child’s play.)
To keep things moving along and the kiddos happily entertained, the Shaw Go Disney Junior app uses adaptive streaming, an innovative technique that ensures the quality of video is commensurate with the strength of your Internet signal. This way, even those using devices with weak signals are able to enjoy the content. Meltdown averted!
For the teen and tween age categories, the Family and Disney XD apps also feature intelligent streaming to provide the best video quality possible regardless of connection speed. And since tweens love to let everyone know what they’re up to, the Shaw Go Disney XD app allows them to share what they’re currently watching by using the app’s share features. To access these features, simply tap the Share icon on the top of the screen, then select the social media app that you would like to use and even set a custom message. “Watching Fish Hooks, holla!!!”
All Shaw Go kids apps include video bookmarking capabilities to stop and play-back shows at anytime as well as parental controls that require PIN access. Shaw Cable and Shaw Direct customers can download the apps by visiting shaw.ca/shawgo or shawdirect.ca/shawgo.
