Manila – Turner has announced a major enhancement to its Cartoon Network Watch and Play app, allowing Globe Telecom customers to live stream Cartoon Network and on-demand content via a new authenticated service. Globe customers will soon be able to log in to the free app using their username and password to unlock an array of value-added services, which includes live streaming the channel on devices, games and access to full episodes on demand.
In addition, Cartoon Network Anything – a unique micro-network that presents short-form content – is now offered as part of the Globe app bundle.
Phil Nelson, Turner’s Managing Director in Southeast Asia, said: “We’re always looking for new ways to connect Cartoon Network fans with our content. This partnership creates a truly unique and enjoyable second-screen brand experience for kids to enjoy and for parents to trust.”
Both apps let kids enjoy their favourite characters and shows whenever. Fueling their imagination, they allow them to be a hero with Ben 10 and the Omnitrix, rule the Candy Kingdom with Princess Bubblegum, flip out with The Powerpuff Girls, or embark on mathematical adventures with Finn and Jake whenever they want. Dedicated data usage for the apps will be offset via a data wallet system, available via users’ subscription plans, meaning they won’t have to worry about eating into their monthly allowance.
Available on iOS and Android devices, a free 30-day trial for Cartoon Network Watch and Play starts this November, exclusive to Globe customers, allowing access to shows and games anytime. Cartoon Network Anything can be accessed for free via the Globe Switch app that comes with a data wallet for prepaid users while post-paid customers can enjoy the app by registering to Globe GoSurf50.
