Ameba TV wins parenting award

  • Print

Winnipeg-based Ameba TV has received a silver 2013 National Parenting Publications Award (NAPPA) award for its digital kids TV service.

Ameba is a digital television subscription service that gives kids access to a vast database of shows while allowing parents to set parameters to control what their children watch.

NAPPA’s independent parent testers evaluate hundreds of submissions for their innovation, safety, quality and the degree to which they make parenting easier. It gave 25 products gold awards, 60 received silver and 41 were chosen as honors.

"Ameba is fun, exciting, and built specifically to make it easy for kids to use on their own. They can choose for themselves what they want to watch and dig as deep as they like into our huge library of shows," said Tony Havelka, founder and CEO of Ameba TV. "This NAPPA award is a major validation for us."

Julie Kertes, NAPPA general manager, said, "Parents want to make the best decisions for their families but don’t always have the time to dig through and research the seemingly endless array of children’s products on the market. Our NAPPA judges do that research for them, delivering a roundup of quality products that parents can purchase with confidence."

The NAPPA has been the go-to resource for the best products for families for more than 20 years.
