Windows 8.1 App Watch: FilmOn Kids

Been a while since we have featured a dedicated kid’s app here, and this one perfectly fits the bill. This new FilmOn application for Windows lets children watch live television shows.

A bunch of other FilmOn apps are available, and like them, this one makes available the majority of channels and shows in standard definition. If the SD format is not your cup of tea, or you like what you see, then you can watch them in HD, for a small fee.

The official description, in full:

“Television on FilmOn enables you to watch live TV for free in Standard Definition on your computer or mobile device. If you wish to watch in HD and record your favorite shows or series, you can do so for a small fee. You can watch your local channels or select from our huge line-up of channels from the US, Europe, Latin America and Asia. Watch live Sports, News, Lifestyle, Movies, Shopping, Kids and more.”

As for what is available in this free app, you have got shows like Sesame Street to Kartoon Klassics, FilmOn Kids, and Animal Atlas — all feature a variety of content suitable for children. Plenty of public domain content, including classics like Woody Woodpecker, Felix the Cat, and Popeye.

The design is standard Windows 8, tile heavy, bright icons on a muted background. Navigation, as a result, is easy and effortless. You also get support for all versions of Windows, including ARM.
