How can a family watch various television shows and movies simultaneously, and have parental control?
Shomi has tons of great kids’ TV shows jam-packed with characters they love, as well, there is a great selection of fun movies the whole family can enjoy on at least two devices at the same time. The streaming service has several family-friendly features, including giving parents the ability to restrict their kids’ access to shows, and setting up separate profiles to see what their kids are watching.
There won’t be any fighting over the remote control because each Shomi subscription can accommodate six individual profiles and can stream on two devices simultaneously, plus set-top-boxes for Rogers and Shaw cable subscribers. So while the kids are watching their show on one device or a TV, Mom and Dad can enjoy a movie or show in another room, including exclusive titles like Vikings and Sons of Anarchy.
Based on what your children prefer watching, Shomi then recommends other shows and movies that they may enjoy. When you create your children’s’ profiles, Shomi makes sure that only age-appropriate content shows up in searches, recommendations, and homepage spotlight feeds. Each family member can browse, stream, and build his/her own “Shomi later” list.
Shomi kids is laid out easily for kids to watch their favourite programs by age group:
For the littles:
Dora the Explorer
In the Night Garden
Thomas and Friends
Yo Gabba Gabba
For the school-aged:
Monster Math Squad
Tom and Jerry Tales
What’s New Scooby-Doo
Are You Afraid of the Dark
Drake and Josh
Shomi content isn’t just pulling TV shows and movie names out of a hat. Every TV series and movie has been hand-picked by their team of content experts – and that includes the kids’ content. The Shomi team is full of parents who know what their kids like, and likely what yours and my kids will enjoy too.
My kids enjoy watching Pokemon and Tom and Jerry Tales, and never-before-seen Supah Ninjas and Drake and Josh. As they’re 11 and almost 9, they still enjoy watching Scooby-Doo but also like tween shows like iCarly.
Movies for the Family
Shomi also has you covered for family movie night, with great features that the whole family can enjoy together, including:
Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs
Gnomeo & Juliet
Life of Pi
The Parent Trap
As long as you have internet access, you can hook up to Shomi – it’s now available to everyone in Canada. If you’re a Rogers or Shaw subscriber, you can also view Shomi without using data on a set-top box. Families can enjoy Shomi online, on select tablets, mobile devices, set top boxes (on Rogers Channel 300 or through the Shaw On Demand menu), Xbox 360, Apple TV, and Chromecast.
