1st July, 2010 - KidsCo, the international children’s channel, today announced the re-launch of its website, www.kidscotv.tv across France, Germany, Portugal and Spain. The revamped site is fully equipped with additional interactive features, greater possibilities for personalisation and cutting edge features such as 3D content.

The new website offers content and activities to capture and enrich children’s imaginations and gives young ones at home and their families the freedom to shape content and engage online with each other as well as featuring KidsCo favourite characters including Heathcliff, Danger Mouse, Sonic the Hedgehog, Dino Squad and original KidsCo productions including Boo & Me, Boo’s Sanctuary and Jass Time!

Amongst the new features of KidsCotv.tv, is live streaming of full-length episodes of original KidsCo productions as well as programme trailers. Children are now able to explore interactive opportunities on the website including a selection of new games and downloads, as well as regionally tailored competitions. Kids can also upload photos, drawings and jokes and share them with other KidsCo fans. The site offers child-friendly browsing through 3D imaging, animated icons and carousel scrolling.
Paul Robinson, Managing Director of KidsCo said: “Today’s children are going digital earlier with the majority of kids already having access to the internet at home. As a channel, we set out to distinguish ourselves in the television market and have redesigned the website to extend our family-friendly, educational entertainment online. As a result, we have created an interactive online community which offers exciting and fun activities and programming for six to 10 year old kids that complements the channel and provides them with a fun and safe online community.”

The website was developed for KidsCo by Prism Entertainment, the television and digital content provider.
