As television audiences move beyond linear programming and consume content on multiple platforms, Cartoon Network is leading the charge in making its various properties available to all its fans. The app is the first kids' network app available on Barnes & Noble's award-winning NOOK HD and NOOK HD+ tablets. Kindle Fire customers have already been enjoying Cartoon Network shows on Kindle Fire though Amazon Instant Video, and the announcement of the Cartoon Network app for Kindle Fire further extends the availability of Cartoon Network's fantastic kids content to Amazon customers. Customers can simply download from the NOOK Store or Amazon Appstore, and following authentication with their cable providers, owners of Kindle Fire and Nook devices will now be able to watch full episodes or enjoy live television with the streaming feature. The app is also currently available on iTunes, Google Play and the nabi(TM) tablet.
