Sky Kids boosts creative line-up this summer with new exclusives Ultimate Video Skills & Best Makes Ever!

30/07/2020

30th July - This summer Sky Kids is offering families all new ways to get creative with two exclusive new original shows, Best Makes Ever! and Ultimate Video Skills joining its line-up of fun-filled family entertainment.

Hosted by influencer and presenter Luke Franks, Ultimate Video Skills is a series of 5-minute shows that teach kids aged 8-12 how to make cool video clips on their phones or tablets. In each episode Luke will be joined by a guest creator, who will bring to life a new camera trick that kids can try at home - from changing your clothes in a split second to hula-hooping at the speed of light and pouring drinks out of thin air.

Meanwhile families can watch and craft along to Best Makes Ever! a twenty-episode series with easy to follow creations from award-winning Red Ted Art blogger Maggy Woodley and founder of Arty Crafty Kids Helen Drew. From pop-up lions to llama marionettes, the whole family can get crafting using everyday accessible materials in this series filled with playful yet simple creations.

Both Ultimate Video Skills from Zodiak Kids and Best Makes Ever! from Red Ted Art and Arty Crafty Kids were commissioned exclusively for Sky Kids by Sky Director of Kids Content, Lucy Murphy.

Commenting on the new additions Lucy said: After months of home-schooling we know that finding fresh ways to have fun as a family is more important than ever! We're delighted to be boosting our summer line-up with shows that will help kids unlock their creativity and take on new challenges.

Ultimate Video Skills and Best Makes Ever! will join a huge range of family friendly entertainment available on Sky Kids. Other crafty highlights for this summer include Let's Create from Boomerang, Mister Maker Comes to Town and Handy Bean, not to mention brand new animated shows from LEGO, including Season 2 of LEGO: Ninjago Secret of the Forbidden Spinjitzu and LEGO Marvel Spider-Man: Vexed by Venom, all available this August.

Watch these great new shows and a huge library of unmissable family favourites all in one place on Sky Kids, a safe space to entertain and educate the whole family. It offers 11 kids channels and 5,000 episodes on demand, or on the go with the Sky Kids App or with a 3.99 NOW TV Kids Pass.

About Sky

With 24 million customers across seven countries, Sky is Europe's leading media and entertainment company and is proud to be part of the Comcast group. Our 32,000 employees help connect our customers to the very best entertainment, sports, news, arts and to our own local, original content.

Following the success of Sky originals like Chernobyl, we plan to double our investment in original content by 2024. We're also developing a new TV and movie studio, Sky Studios Elstree, which is expected to lead to the creation of over 2,000 new jobs and generate an additional 3 billion of production investment in UK creative sector in the first five years alone.

Our technology allows customers to watch what they want, when they want, how they want, and as we connect millions of families to content they love, we believe it is our responsibility to do it safely. That's why we offer services like Sky Broadband Buddy and the Sky Kids app. And our online streaming service, NOW TV, brings viewers all the enjoyment of Sky with the flexibility of a contract-free service.

We also believe that a company of our scale has a responsibility that goes beyond our business, and into the community. We recently announced a series of commitments to help tackle racial injustice and improve diversity and inclusion. To ensure the commitments are delivered, Sky will invest 10million per year across its markets for each of the next three years. We're committed to being Europe's first net zero carbon entertainment company by 2030 - two decades before we have to - and we're an inclusive employer recognised by The Times and Stonewall for our commitment to diversity.
