The app will have content ranging from rhymes to fairy tales.

We have all grown up listening to the moral stories from the Panchatantra, the delightful to-and-fro witty conversations between Vikram and Betal, the goofiness and adventures of Scrooge and the rest of the characters from DuckTales, and about Swamy and friends from Malgudi Days.


In a bid to ensure that the upcoming, digital-first generation does not miss out on these entertaining yet educative tales, nexGTv, a subscription-led video entertainment app and the flagship offering of DigiVive Services, has announced the launch of its new app called 'nexGTv Kids app'.

With the launch of India's first kids' video and infotainment app, young viewers across the globe can now immerse themselves in an eclectic mix of wonderful stories and delightful characters from series both vintage, as well as new that will not only entertain them, but will also aid their healthy intellectual development during their growing years.

Available for download through the Google Play Store and Apple iTunes in nearly 140 countries, the 'nexGTv Kids' app will allow children between the ages of two and 10 to access a plethora of highly educative and entertaining video content. In order to take care of their holistic learning, kids will also have access to several informative and educating videos featuring Housing Clay Art tutorials, jovial Science experiment videos, as well as popular nursery rhymes in addition to the entertainment content.

To add to the entertainment is the Live TV section of the app which gives access to universally-loved channels such as Cartoon Network and Pogo, while a featured movies list including popular films such as Popeye - Bride & Gloom, Boxer Rebellion, Bumm Bumm Bhole, and Bal Ganesh will also be present as an option. The app effortlessly juggles between education, learning and entertainment by hosting a vivid range of videos, animations, movies, and jolly tutorials.

Speaking on how different the app is, Abhesh Verma, chief operating officer, nexGTv, says, "This app is only for kids. All the content uploaded here will be only for kids. There is nothing offensive or bad for the little ones. Parents can relax when their kids are watching the videos on our app. There is nothing like an AIB (All India Backchod) or TVF content. The app is completely clean and they do not need to worry about parental control. Just launch the app, and you will see only kids' content in there."

The platform's in-house editors will curate and present relevant, meaningful content for kids from past favourites and current hit shows, which will be delivered in a reliable and feel-good environment. To have an exclusive child-centric app also ensures that the impressionable minds of its young viewers are not exposed to unsuitable content - explicit, violent, or otherwise. This welcome integration of security, entertainment, and education is what makes 'nexGTv Kids' the ultimate entertainment platform that helps them to learn in a positive, responsible manner.
