The BBC has launched a new family iPlayer experience merging the best of the broadcaster’s child-friendly content.
The platform will include a wide range of both entertaining and educational series and films from the CBBC and CBeebies, as well as other suitable BBC programming.
To access the site, users simply have to select the monster shaped ‘children’ button when asked who’s watching.
The categories have also been simplified to make it easier for child viewers, who will find their favourite series divided into Trending, Drama, Funny and Cartoons. Live broadcasts of the CBBC and CBeebies channels can also be easily accessed.
The list of series includes such hits as Hey Duggee and Bing, and several David Walliams classics returning to iPlayer including The Boy In The Dress and Mr Stink.
With the launch of such a service, the BBC aims to restore the confidence of parents and carers amid growing concern over children’s access to unsuitable content.
Alice Webb, Director BBC Children’s and Education, said: “Keeping children informed, educated and entertained at home during these unprecedented times is going to be even more important than ever.
“This new experience gives children of all ages a place to go to do that.”
