Famigo Announces New Mobile Content Lineup, Partnership with Mobile MUM

FamigoFamigo, a company providing safer experiences for children on mobile devices, today announced it has formed a strategic partnership with Mobile MUM, a provider of premium video content and educational apps for kids. Collectively, with the assistance of the developer community, Famigo can now ensure families, telecom carriers and OEMs have access to the newest child appropriate content available for mobile devices.

“Our partnership with Mobile MUM, as well as our continued focus on collaborating with the developer community, are important steps toward our goal of acquiring the widest variety of premium mobile content available for children”

Under the partnership, Famigo-approved premium content is now available for children to stream and enjoy using the Mobile MUM player on smart phones and tablets. New programs include: ‘Dino Dan,’ ‘Cat in the Hat,’ ‘Sid the Science Kid,’ ‘The Wiggles,’ ‘Mighty Machines,’ Jim Henson’s ‘Pajanimals’ and more.

Famigo provides families, telecom carriers and OEMs with a ‘one-stop-shop’ for the enjoyment of family media.

“Our partnership with Mobile MUM, as well as our continued focus on collaborating with the developer community, are important steps toward our goal of acquiring the widest variety of premium mobile content available for children,” said Q Beck, Co-Founder and CEO of Famigo. “Famigo is more than a media platform – we want to offer a compelling mobile media experience for kids. There is something very powerful about being able to pick the best shows that you know are child-approved, and handing the device to your child to let them enjoy with complete confidence.”

Famigo is also announcing an updated subscription-based pricing model: for $7.99/month, subscription users get all the video they want plus 5 – 7 curated apps (approximately $20.00 worth of content) based on what they play in Famigo. Further reducing ‘discovery time’ for new content, parents can download new apps directly from the Famigo app.

“Working with Q and the team at Famigo made perfect sense for Mobile MUM because we are both committed to providing the best in mobile video content that entertains and educates children,” said Tim Capper, Mobile MUM president and chief creative officer. “With this agreement, Famigo can now use our platform and expansive library of child-approved programming. Together, we are significantly enhancing mobile content experiences for children.”
