Parents looking to get their children entertained in the family room are in for a treat when the new directv Entertainment package arrives.
The new package will bring to the table a number of new features that will enable parents to easily stream entertainment, including the ability to stream to a TV from a mobile device, a new TV-like app, and the ability for parents to stream movies and TV shows to their devices.
Parents will also be able to stream a video game from their mobile device or tablet to their TV, including an arcade-style game for 2 to 4 players.
Directv has launched a video streaming service for adults to offer children the same access to entertainment, which is designed to give parents the opportunity to enjoy their children while providing an alternative to cable and satellite services.
According to the company, the new entertainment options will provide parents with the same entertainment options as cable or satellite packages, but with the added flexibility to watch the entertainment they want to watch.
Directiv has also partnered with The Hub to offer its own streaming apps for kids.
The Hub, an independent mobile app, provides kids with a video-chat-like experience that will allow them to interact with friends on the go.
In the Hub, children can send and receive pictures, videos, and more from their smartphone, tablet, or other device, and share the content of their own videos with others.
The kids Hub app is available for Android and iOS devices.
In addition to these new features, the entertainment options in the Directv Entertainment Packages will include a new interactive feature that allows parents to use the TV remote control as a keyboard to send text messages.
Parents can also access the new Directv TV app, which will allow parents to watch live TV content from their smartphones and tablets on the TV.
