freitasm: I've updated the post above with the kids index page to include the full TV line up as well 


That's impressive, especially for launch.  Well done Telecom.

Thanks for the show lists.  I've found that the gap in the market is in the pre-teen/early teen market.  There is a push to young kids and adults but not a lot in between.

My eldest is 15 this year - so not really watching the Disney any more but does watch some Nick and starting to watch some of the older aimed content on TV etc.  Considering she is in the "now" generation bracket she's going to probably start looking online for content!  The service could do with a PG-13 area to help find content.

Just my thoughts! :)




Procrastination eventually pays off.

Thanks - good to see the full range, which really isn't too bad as a starting point. Just suffers the perenial problem all these services (including Netflix) have - get material from Showtime and HBO on it and I'll sign up immediately (and probably be prepared to pay a bit more)...

Do programmes like Orphan Black, Sherlock, Luther, House of Cards, Orange is the New Black have their latest series?

It kinda sucks Outrageous Fortune is not on the list so far, I recently binged it and I'm sure many other would love to as well.I would love it if Avatar: The Last Air Bender was added along with The Legend of Korra.

Good list of shows for a start.
I'd like to trial it, but as for paying for it - it would need to easy to get on the big screens for my Wife before I'd seriously consider dropping Netflix for it. That means a Native AppleTV/FireTV or SmartTV app. Not Airplay.

just signed up, at first thought, thats a pretty good set of tv offerings.  but when i went into seinfeld (amazed to see seinfeld, thought no one had it streaming) theres only a few episodes for each season.  wonder if this is just for the beta or not?

I think the web player could be enhanced to show the next episode in a series and give the option to play from there instead of going back to the list...

But already said that before, just repeating so it's not lost.

The link and text are different, type it in or copy paste the text and it works.

I signed up but it doesn't seem to work in my chromebook due to silverlight so will try it when I get home.
