You.i TV Brings Cartoon Network’s Award-Winning App To Apple TV and Amazon Fire TV

OTTAWA, Ontario–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#UI–You.i TV, a global leader in video experience platforms, today announced
that they have adapted Turner’s Cartoon Network Emmy Award-winning app
for Apple TV and Amazon Fire TV. The expansion of the Cartoon Network
App
is the latest cross-platform app to be released on You.i Engine
showcasing new levels of personalization and navigation functionality.
The app is also currently on iOS, Android, and Kindle Fire.

Originally launched by Cartoon Network in 2015 and lauded for its
innovative design, the Cartoon Network App gives kids the
quickest, most customizable access to all of their favorite shows and
provides users a best-in-class video experience on mobile and tablet
devices. At the center of the app is “The Mix,” an intuitive way for
kids to create personalized playlists comprised of their favorite shows,
which will then serve up an effortless stream of episodes, clips and
original content all based on their likes. With “See It First,” the app
also offers full episodes that are accessible prior to their linear
premieres.

Featured in the app store, the rich library of content, includes such
hits as Adventure Time, Steven Universe, The Powerpuff
Girls
, We Bare Bears and The Amazing World of
Gumball
, via an engaging and highly flexible interface that includes
3D animation.

“Giving kids the best experience possible and a fun dynamic way to watch
their favorite shows on all screens is core to our strategy,” said Chris
Waldron, Vice President, Cartoon Network Digital. “Working with You.i TV
on bringing the Cartoon Network App to TV is enabling us to continue to
be the ultimate destination for kids when it comes to digital and mobile
entertainment.” The latest Turner-You.i TV collaboration app to leverage
the capabilities of You.i Engine, the Cartoon Network experience is
based on the same software platform as FilmStruck, TNT, TBS and other
Turner brands. The immersive interface can be modified in minutes to
address changes in program lineups, deliver promotional or public
service messages or create in-app advertising opportunities.

“Cartoon Network is the latest example of how imaginative design teams
are using the power of our You.i Engine platform to deliver superior app
experiences,” said Andrew Emmons, VP of Product Development. “From here,
they have everything they need to keep audiences fully engaged and
coming back for more.”

You.i TV will be showing the Cartoon Network interface during demo
meetings in their suite in the Wynn Encore Tower Suites at CES 2017 from
January 4th until January 7th.
