L4 Mobile understood the importance of designing for the little hands of our audience and delivered the multi-channel experience we needed to engage our viewers with lessons of school readiness, strength, and kindness on these platforms.
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) December 08, 2014
L4 Mobile, a leading digital product agency, announced today that the company was selected by Sesame Workshop, the non-profit organization behind the children’s classic Sesame Street, to deliver the Sesame Street Go video on demand service across a series of device platforms. Consumers who subscribe to the Sesame Street Go service have access to both new and classic full-length Sesame Street episodes, short-form minisodes, games, and music videos. L4 Mobile designed and developed the Sesame Street Go application so young viewers could easily and safely access ad-free videos and games of their favorite characters, like Big Bird, Cookie Monster, and Elmo, on any Web, iOS, Android, and Chromecast device.
“Viewing habits of children are different than they were 45 years ago when Sesame Street debuted,” said Scott Chambers, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Media Distribution. “Today, viewers are not only accessing our content on TV, but also through the use of their parent’s smartphone, tablet, desktop or laptop computer. L4 Mobile understood the importance of designing for the little hands of our audience and delivered the multi-channel experience we needed to engage our viewers with lessons of school readiness, strength, and kindness on these platforms.”
A recent report from The Joan Ganz Cooney Center found that “on average, children ages 2- to 10-years-old spend just under an hour a day (:56) consuming educational screen media”, like Sesame Street Go. They also found that “57% of parents say their child has learned “a lot” about one or more subject areas (e.g., reading/vocabulary, math, or cognitive skills) from educational media”. To foster school readiness, the new Sesame Street Go service filters content by eight core “Learning Areas”, including Math, Science, Literacy, and the Arts.
“As a dad with two little Sesame Street fans in the house, I realized just how critical it was for our company to get the Sesame Street Go experience right, “ said Keith O’Neill, co-founder and principal of L4 Mobile. “The goal was to make the entire experience, from sign-on to video streaming, incredibly simple and engaging for the user. We tapped into the extensive multi-platform and video streaming development expertise of our entire team to bring a TV quality experience across any device. You simply don’t cut corners when it comes to Sesame Street.”
The Sesame Street Go service is available at: http://www.sesamestreetgo.com/ and can also be found in Google Play and the Apple App Store. There is a free trial available for the service and subscription costs are $3.99/month or $29.99 per year. In addition to the award-winning educational content available through the service, Sesame Street Go also offers viewers the ability to pay for the service on one platform and then access it across any other platform using a single sign-in.
