Fetch subscribers will be able to unlock the full library of content via authentication in mid-2018.

Ben Cox, Vice President and General Manager of Nickelodeon Networks Australia & New Zealand, said, “Given the success of Nick Play in Australia, I’m confident the tremendous appeal of Nick Jr.’s shows and characters will provide preschoolers new ways to be entertained, play and learn.” Cox added, “Nick Jr. Play will also provide Foxtel and Fetch subscribers access to a safe environment featuring characters their children already know and love at no additional cost.”

Nick Play is currently available for download on iOS and Android app stores in Australia and New Zealand. Nick Jr. Play will be available when it launches later this year.
