New From Shaw Go – Disney Junior, Family and XD Apps

Some of my favourite apps are those that allow my children to watch their favourite shows at home and while on the go. With 5 kids of varying ages and tastes my kids almost never agree on which show to watch. I love that I can set up the family iPad or my Samsung Note 8 with one of the new Shaw Go apps and everyone is happy. The older kids can watch their favourite shows on the big screen and the little ones can snuggle up with me somewhere else to watch more age appropriate fare.

With Shaw Communications Inc. recent release of three additional Shaw Go kids apps, available exclusively to Shaw Cable and Shaw Direct subscribers, streaming and watching our favourite kid shows just got more mobile. The younger kids love catching up with their favourite shows on Shaw Go Disney Junior while the older kids are thrilled to stream Gravity Falls on Shaw Go Disney XD. I may have even spent some time with Phineas and Ferb on the Shaw Go Family Channel App. I just love that show!

The exciting launch of the Shaw Go Kids apps truly enhances our great children’s programming with added flexibility, access and convenience for our customers,” said Jay Mehr, Executive Vice President and Chief Operations Officer, Shaw Communications Inc. “The expansion of the Shaw Go apps suite is a continuation of our commitment to provide our customers with the content they want to watch, when and how they want it.

    It’s a tie between Phineas & Ferb and Jessie for me. Sometimes I find myself watching these shows even when the kids aren’t around!

  2. Heidi C. says

    My girls are big fans of Sofia the First. They enjoy a lot of Disney Jr. programming (and wish desperately for more opportunities to watch it :))

  3. Viv Sluys says

    I love Stella and Sam on Disney Jr. I think it is great that the siblings get along in that show. Plus, they storylines are great and the animation is cute.

  4. Brianne Hager says

    My favorite shows (and my kids’ favorites too) are Phineas & Ferb and Gravity Falls.
