Online shopping giant Amazon has launched a new subscription service for children. The new service will include games, videos and ebooks for children so that more kids use its Kindle Fire tablet devices.
Amazon will launch the Kindle FreeTime Unlimited service in the next few weeks as part of a software update. The online shopping giant also said that subscribers will have access in the next few weeks to a lot of content, but the company has not put a figure on it yet.
With the new subscription, children can now watch, play and read any content available to them as many times as they want. It is also possible for parents to have the option of setting time limits. The service for children aged from 3 years to 8 years will cost $4.99 per month for one child. It is possible to get a discounted price of $2.99 per child for members of Amazon Prime, which is the company’s premium shipping service.
Parents will have the option of setting up profiles for up to six children and will also be able to add time limits that kids can spend reading and watching videos. This new offering from Amazon will stand out from the crowd as it could get very popular with children as well.
