The following news brought to you by the letter ‘S’: Sesame Workshop, the folks behind the long-running PBS show Sesame Street, have launched a new kid-friendly streaming video service called Sesame Go.
For $3.99 a month (or $29.99 a year), Sesame Go offers instant access to “hundreds” of full-length episodes of Sesame Street and Pinky Dinky Doo via PC, Mac, smartphone and tablet. The service was designed with kids in mind: Controls are colorful and easy-to-use, and like the TV show, the experience is advertising-free.
Sesame Go is currently offering a 2-week free trial, so the best way to learn more is to just give it a try for yourself. Be warned though – once your preschooler has unlimited access to Big Bird, Elmo, Cookie Monster and the rest of the gang, that tablet may never leave your child's hands again.
Sesame Go is available in the U.S. only at sesamego.com. For more cool high-tech ways to get your Sesame Street fix, check out the collection of Sesame Street books available on Apple iBooks and the interactive Kinect Sesame Street TV shows available exclusively through Xbox LIVE.
