iPhone and iPod touch versions include all the same content
and also allows users to watch and play in the same app, although
not simultaneously. The new Cartoon Network app will continue
to be free to download.
Animation, Young Adults and Kids Media division president,
COO Stuart Snyder said, "In continuing our efforts to
make sure our viewers are enjoying Cartoon Network content,
whenever and wherever, it is always our goal to make their
experience unique and exciting. CN 2.0 is an innovative and
fun new enhancement to the Cartoon Network app that is like
no other in the marketplace."
Network VP digital Chris Waldron said, "The viewing habits
of kids are changing every day and they are using mobile devices
and tablets more than ever. We know they love our shows and
games and have observed them participating in both simultaneously,
yet on different platforms. It just made sense to bring all
that together into an experience they can't find anywhere
else but at Cartoon Network."
