Panasonic Corporation of North America, creator of the HomeTeam online family entertainment service, has announced that it has expanded its library of digital books to include Disney content featuring familiar characters and stories. Beginning today, HomeTeam will add nearly 150 Disney, Pixar, Star Wars, and Marvel titles to its library including classic content popular among kids, parents and grandparents.
HomeTeam, led by the Panasonic Health & Wellness Solutions, aims to enrich family time, connecting family members separated by distance through shared reading and gaming experiences over video chat. The service caters to families with children under the age of 12 and features an engaging and easy-to-navigate platform, specifically designed to help grandparents and grandchildren create and maintain healthy relationships. HomeTeam is also ideal for busy parents or traveling professionals who want to stay connected to their children through rich media experiences.
The complete HomeTeam library includes almost 2,000 books, which have been curated by top library scientists to maximize entertainment and social connection between generations. Books and games available on HomeTeam relate to popular topics such as nature, sports, animals, food, crafts, and cars, and can be sorted by age range.
"Finding shared interests and creating moments of connection between today’s youngest and oldest generations can be a challenge for busy families or ones who can’t physically be in the same place,” said Steve Safier, President of Panasonic Health & Wellness Solutions. “Panasonic is excited to apply our technology expertise to this particular challenge, while expanding our collection to include Disney’s content. By tapping into such a rich set of entertainment, HomeTeam family subscribers will be able to engage with each other over some of the most iconic stories in the world while driving stronger family bonds.”
HomeTeam can be downloaded from the App Store, Google Play or MyHomeTeam.com. After a one-month free trial, a subscription to HomeTeam costs $8.99 per month and can be shared with up to five family members.
HomeTeam is a premier entertainment service that connects loved ones across generations and distance through video chat with reading and games. With abundant game and book title content options to choose from, family members engage in enriching activities together via tablet or desktop interactions.
