Speaking of the launch of DIY TV, Bhavik Rathod, Co-Founder, Kyt TechnologiesSaid
“The reality today is that kids are using most of their content off the screen. The content currently available is dormant at its best and insecure in the worst case. Parents are looking for good quality content for their children and children are looking for rich, educational, and peer-accepted content. Diversity. DIY TV brings content that meets both needs in a way that has never been done before. “
With the introduction of DIY TV, DIY.org has become the first EdTech platform for children to enter the OTT space. DIY TV will change how children use content through three main focus areas – (1) providing healthy screen time, (2) encouraging active (rather than passive) use of content, and (3) consuming, creating and creating positive loops. The idea is to provide rich and inspiring content that makes children spend time off screen in the form of collaborative activities and projects. Furthermore, the active community on the platform helps children collaborate and share, thus adding another level of positive reinforcement to learning-based content use.
