Sky to commission original children's content

Sky Kids app

New episodes of Morph, from Aardman Animation, will premiere on the new Sky Kids app later this year, alongside shorter clips featuring the legendary character, designed to encourage children to have a go at making their own models and films.

The network is also in discussion with other producers to create kids’ versions of some its favourite shows.

The Sky Kids app, which launches this week, is designed to allow children easy and safe access to suitable content.
