Ameba’s Streaming TV for Kids Launches on Xbox 360

Gives kids, moms and dads a convenient option for safe, smart entertainment

Winnipeg, MB, August 20, 2013—Ameba TV, a pioneering independent children’s streaming TV provider, announced today its official launch on Microsoft’s Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system. The platform expansion extends Ameba’s reach to millions of Internet-connected consumer electronics devices throughout the U.S. and Canada.

“Through the power of Xbox 360, the magic of motion and voice control with Kinect, and the second screen intelligence of Xbox SmartGlass, Ameba subscribers can experience their favourite Ameba content in new and exciting ways,” said Tony Havelka, Ameba’s founder and CEO. “With our recent launch of Ameba 2.0 the service is easier to navigate than ever before and has tons of new content that will keep kids coming back for more.”

The Ameba Xbox app—featuring music and programming geared exclusively for children 2 through 12—is designed to be easy for kids to use and combines the simplicity of television with massive archives of streaming content. Kids can actively search for a specific show or sit back and watch the recommended playlist. Selecting a new show to watch is as easy as changing the channel on a television. A simple thumbs up-down rating system allows them to flag shows they like and dislike. In only a few steps, each child is assigned a profile, which will become more and more customized each time he or she uses the service.

“Families today are choosing to view programs on multiple screens whether they’re at home or on the go,” said Havelka. “We’ve designed Ameba specifically for families with children looking to watch safe, smart, quality shows at a great price whenever and wherever they want.”

Starting on Tuesday, August 20 in the United States and Thursday, August 22 in Canada, Ameba subscribers with an Xbox LIVE® Gold subscription can easily download the Ameba app from the Xbox LIVE Marketplace. The app gives users instant access to Ameba’s award-winning programming, streaming directly to their Xbox 360 for convenient, anytime on-demand viewing from the comfort of their home.* Ameba’s innovative navigation system is easy for both kids and parents to use.

* Xbox LIVE Gold subscription and/or additional subscriptions/fees may be
required and sold separately. Kinect functionality available with select Xbox LIVE content and varies by feature and country. For additional details and availability, see http://www.xbox.com/live.
