This week, Disney Interactive and Circle Media Inc. announced an exciting new device that reimagines how families use the Internet, called Circle with Disney. This new tool helps parents stay informed about their kids’ online activities and limit screen time on every device in the home, including smart phones, tablets, computers and gaming consoles.
Circle with Disney pairs with home Wi-Fi and gives parents the ability to filter content, set a bedtime for devices, and even completely pause the Internet. Each user’s profile and settings can be completely customized based on age and parents’ preferences.
Additionally, Circle also provides families with Disney entertainment that parents trust and children love. Circle with Disney will deliver a curated selection of Disney content including videos, blogs, gifs, emojis, music, games, characters and lots more through a unique experience called MyCircle.
“Increasingly, kids are interacting with Disney stories and characters across mobile and online devices, and Circle with Disney gives parents the tools to manage those experiences,” said Kyle Laughlin, senior vice president, Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media Labs. “As the leading producer of kids’ content, Disney is committed to helping parents find the digital lifestyle that works for their home, and Circle with Disney makes that possible.”
For mobile devices, Circle Media Inc. has created Circle Go, a companion subscription that covers all iOS devices when they are outside the home, including use on 4G LTE. Circle with Disney Go delivers the same key features of Circle, but now for your family on the go. Circle Go will be available in early 2016.
