Child-friendly design to engage young minds

Eye-catching, multi-layered experiences

Give young audiences the experience they deserve, with kid-friendly and easy to use OTT services and applications built with them in mind. Children today are far more familiar with technology as part of their development and are engaging with the latest applications and digital services for their entertainment and education.

Simplestream provides premium products to children’s content producers and owners, supporting some of the biggest names in the industry with design-driven, always safe interactive and engaging experiences.


Create the best experiences with the freedom to explore in a fun and simple environment, crafted for younger viewers. Colours, fonts, imagery: our expertise will help you craft unforgettable moments.


Child-directed apps must comply with COPPA and GDPR rules to be approved in all app stores. We don’t track data in our kids apps to ensure compliance as standard.

monetise safely with compliance

Human-reviewed advertising is a requirement when monetising child-directed apps for AVOD. Utilise Server-Side Ad Insertion (SSAI) to create ad-blocker immune advertising with zero third-party code.


Interactivity makes your service stand out. Leverage best-in-class third-party integrations – such as Art Pad – to deliver engaging moments through a gamified experience.

It was critical for Channel 4 to be able to offer our live streams to OTT viewers in an accessible environment. Simplestream’s platform was easy to integrate with our services, it satisfied our requirement of flexibility to work with third parties and high levels of stability throughout the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games.
