Disney, Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network join Sky Go

To coincide with the beginning of the school holidays, dozens of popular children’s shows including SpongeBob SquarePants, Ben10 and Regular Show are now available to watch on-demand on Sky Go on smartphones and mobile tablets.

On-demand content from eight children’s channels, including Cartoon Network, the Disney Channel and Nickelodeon, is now available through the app, which is available at no extra cost to Sky TV customers with the Entertainment Extra pack.

The on-demand content will be followed by the addition of eight live kids channels to the Sky Go app next month. Once the live children’s channels are added, Sky customers will be able to access a total of 32 live channels on Sky Go on smartphones and mobile tablets across news, sport, movies, entertainment and kids content.

A year after its launch, Sky Go continues to gain popularity amongst Sky customers, attracting 2.7 million unique users during the three months up to the end of June 2012.
