Customers now have access to one go-to, family-friendly entertainment
destination with Rogers Cable
Rogers continues to innovate to deliver the best content and
entertainment experiences across multiple screens
TORONTO, Nov. 13, 2013 /CNW/ – Rogers Communications, today puts
families first with the launch of Rogers Kids Zone, a go-to hub for
premium children’s TV and movies. Available exclusively for Rogers
customers at home and on the go, families can now enjoy Canada’s most
popular kids’ programming and movies in one secure and easy to use
portal available across multiple device screens.
“Kids Zone fits squarely into our TV anywhere strategy, to deliver a
one-stop destination available across screens that offers the best and
most extensive entertainment on the market,” said David Purdy, senior
vice-president, content, Rogers Communications. “Canadian families are
fast adopters of tech and children are naturals with second screens
such as tablets. We’ve designed Kids Zone to give customers a vast
library of the latest children’s programming that is easily accessible
on multiple platforms through one cable subscription.”
The family friendly portal delivers a collection of popular kids
programming that is not available through over the top services.
Channel highlights include Disney Jr., Treehouse, Family Channel, YTV,
Nickelodeon Canada, Teletoon, Duck TV, and Disney XD. Rogers Kids Zone
is available on TVs via Rogers On Demand Ch. 200, RogersAnyplaceTV.com/KidsZone on computers, and on the Rogers Anyplace TV™ application for smartphones, tablets, Xbox 360 gaming systems and LG
The Rogers Kids Zone is part of the NextBox 3.0 experience; home to
double the movies and TV shows On Demand when compared to Fibe™.
NextBox 3.0 gives viewers unprecedented access to record up to eight HD
programs at one time and one TB of PVR storage capacity. Also,
Canadians can discover even more family TV entertainment included in
their cable package through the Recommendation App for NextBox. Rogers
