Fun at Home App was recently launched by Rogers Canada Ignite TV for kids. This is a new educational interactive app launched from Toronto-based zone tv, which also has offices in Santa Monica, California.
According to Jeff Weber, CEO of zone·tv, “Starting with Fun at Home, we are responding to the needs of families coping with work from home and learn from home situations, where it is so important that family members are able to discover and engage in productive pursuits.”
Zone·tv brings interactive event-based channels to your television. Interactive channels provide hours of fun for the whole family with movies, sing-alongs, interactive games and more.
The Fun at Home app is available free for Rogers customers and debuts in Canada for the first time, exclusively on Ignite TV. It is being dubbed as an “edutainment-centric” interactive service for kids of all ages. Aside from education categories, there are various movies and casual games “designed to stimulate and train young minds.”
Rogers Ignite TV customers can access Fun at Home through the Apps Menu or by mentioning the app’s name on the Ignite TV voice remote.
Rogers is the first Canadian TV service provider to introduce this innovative new experience to customers through its premium TV service.
Fun at Home is the first to launch in this series of new applications designed to help families during these unprecedented and challenging times. Fun at Home is an “edutainment-centric” interactive service that’s safe and captivating for kids of all ages, with learning categories that include art, math, science, life skills, geography and history. The application also includes a selection of movies and highly interactive casual games designed to stimulate and train young minds.
