Nick Play Apps Headed to Telkomsel in Indonesia


Indonesian telco Telkomsel is set to roll out the Nickelodeon Play and Nick Jr. Play apps this year, following a deal with Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN) Asia.

Nickelodeon Play will be available in Q3, followed by Nick Jr. Play, from the Apple App Store and Google Play, and can be accessed via the Nickelodeon Kids Pack for Telkomsel’s post-paid and pre-paid users in Indonesia. The operator, which reaches 173 million mobile subscribers, will also offer a package with a dedicated data plan for Nickelodeon Play and Nick Jr. Play.

The apps, part of Viacom Play Plex, offer VOD access to current and library series, short-form content, games and music videos.

“We are delighted both Nickelodeon Play and Nick Jr. Play will debut in Indonesia through Telkomsel,” said Paras Sharma, senior VP and general manager for Southeast Asia at VIMN. “These Viacom Play Plex apps are designed to extend access to our content across multiple platforms and allow our distribution partners like Telkomsel to deepen the entertainment experience they offer their mobile subscribers, particularly with kids and families who want to be able to access the best of Nickelodeon content from a safe destination anytime and anywhere.”

“As consumers increasingly watch video over mobile networks, we continue to provide various video content that suits their needs, supported by our superior broadband service to give the best digital lifestyle experience,” added Alistair Johnston, marketing director of Telkomsel. “We are very excited to collaborate with VIMN and look forward to introducing Nickelodeon Play and Nick Jr. Play to our customers.”
