Cartoon Network Watch and Play

Hong Kong – Turner Broadcasting System Asia Pacific has announced a major enhancement to its Cartoon Network Watch and Play app, allowing Cartoon Network subscribers in Asia to live-stream the channel via a free authenticated service for the first time.

From the end of October in Thailand, TrueVisions subscribers who have the iPad app installed can simply log-in with their personal ID and password provided by the cable operator to unlock a whole array of value-added services, including Cartoon Network’s live Thai-language feed and additional exclusive content.

“We are very excited to partner with TrueVisions to launch this first-in-Asia authenticated service for Cartoon Network. We’re always looking to offer Cartoon Network fans new ways to connect with our content and to create a truly unique second-screen brand experience,” said Phil Nelson, Turner’s Senior Vice President and Managing Director for North Asia and Southeast Asia Pacific regions. “Watch and Play makes real-time Cartoon Network on-the-go a reality,” he added.

Some of the additional functionality includes full episodes of popular shows including Adventure Time, Ben 10: Omniverse, Regular Show, The Amazing World of Gumball and the upcoming original TV special Monster Beach, and additional native app games.
