‘This partnership creates a truly unique and enjoyable second-screen brand experience for kids to enjoy and for parents to trust,’ says Turner’s Phil Nelson.

Globe Telecom has enhanced Cartoon Network’s Watch and Play app in the Philippines to allow customers to livestream Cartoon Network and on-demand content.

“We’re always looking for new ways to connect Cartoon Network fans with our content,” said Phil Nelson, MD of Turner in Southeast Asia.

“This partnership creates a truly unique and enjoyable second-screen brand experience for kids to enjoy and for parents to trust.”

Available for iOS and Android devices, the app is available for a free 30-day trial starting this November.

Dan Horan. senior advisor for consumer business at Globe, added: “Together with Turner, we are able to give our customers a more wonderful digital entertainment experience on mobile. We share Turner’s commitment to provide more creative ways to nurture kids’ imagination.”
