Bernie Goldbach in Cashel | Mia Goldbach on the dial.
THE BIGGEST COMPLAINT we get from our junior infant (snapped younger in the photo) is she doesn't want to hear the news. She wants RTEjr.
We told her the news said she can watch, listen and play on a new RTEjr app so she's interested. She agreed to pull one of her apps off our family iTouch and tossed Snow White into the dead pool. Some day she might discover how to run the RTÉ Player and dive into 40 hours of content on any given day.
I like the idea that Mia can listen to stories or sing songs with an online presenter because I grew up with those kinds of things before we had a television in the house.
It looks like RTE have commissioned more than 100 children’s stories and that some of that content will port to mobile devices. I wonder if we can listen to the dedicated children’s radio channel on DAB or if it's a Saorview-only option.
When the 360 view of children’s programming across multiple platforms and devices puts RTÉjr into more spaces, I'll be watching to see how our two children seek it out. At the moment, they're happy enough to just watch it on television only.
