SKY NZ Brings Customers Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network Apps


SKY in New Zealand is making the Nick Play and Cartoon Network Watch and Play apps available to its customers with additional content.

The Nick Play app features catch-up programming, and the Cartoon Network Watch and Play app offers the ability to stream the channel live. SKY NZ customers can access special content from Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network shows.

“We know hundreds of thousands of Kiwi kids are avid fans of both Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network,” said SKY’s director of entertainment content, Travis Dunbar. “So now, not only do they have the ability to access additional content via the apps, but can also catch up on their favourite shows on the go just because they are SKY customers.

“As a parent myself it’s great to see the launch of both the Nick Play and Cartoon Network Watch and Play apps in this market as they offer a safe place for kids to enjoy some of the best children’s content SKY has to offer when they’re away from home.”

“SKY customers will love the extra content available on the Cartoon Network Watch and Play App,” said Robi Stanton, general manager of Turner Australia, New Zealand and Pacific territories. “Together with SKY, Cartoon Network is committed to providing our fans in New Zealand new ways to connect with the world’s best animation. The app offers a truly unique and enjoyable second-screen brand experience for kids to enjoy—and for parents to trust.”

Ben Cox, VP and general manager of Nickelodeon Australia and New Zealand, said, “Nickelodeon has a long history of bringing the best shows and content to our Kiwi viewers and together with SKY, we’re now offering them more than ever before. The free Nick Play App provides our audiences with a safe environment to catch their favorite show from The Thundermans to SpongeBob SquarePants and more.”

“Our dedication to constantly innovate across all of our platforms means that we can provide viewers with a different experience every time they connect with our brand,” Cox added.
