TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--As summer winds down and parents and kids get ready for back to school, zone·tv™ is introducing “Ignite Fun at Home,” a new interactive app to help engage, educate and entertain the whole family. Available exclusively on Rogers Ignite TV™, 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 that have been 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.
Zone·tv’s At Home applications are free and give Rogers customers access to compelling interactive video services, with hours of curated content and casual games designed to inform, educate and entertain families in support of stay at home, work from home and learn from home lifestyles.
“We are proud to partner with Rogers to deliver this entirely new category of interactive experiences to Ignite TV customers,” said 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.”
“Providing our customers with free curated content that the whole family can enjoy is one of the ways we are enhancing the at home entertainment experience,” said Eric Bruno, SVP – 5G, Content and Connected Home Products. “With Fun At Home, our customers have free access to unique content that they can not get anywhere else and we are excited to partner with zone·tv to be the first to offer this app in Canada.”
At Home applications are fully programmed and managed by zone·tv and will be available on Ignite TV through the Apps Menu, or by saying “Fun at Home” into the Ignite TV voice remote.
At Home applications are powered by zone·tv’s Studio (cloud-based video curation and programming platform), in combination with zone·tv’s Interactive Event Channel Framework which delivers engaging content-specific interactivity and casual gaming.
