The BBC has unveiled a child-friendly version of iPlayer that prevents children accessing inappropriate content.

The CBeebies iPlayer, which is aimed at children up to six, features popular kid's shows including 'In the Night Garden' and 'Charlie and Lola'. The shows will be available to watch on demand for up to 13 weeks after first broadcast.

"Children live in an on-demand age and with the launch of the new BBC iPlayer designed for the under sixes, children can now watch some of their favourite programmes whenever they want and parents have greater flexibility and freedom to choose what their children watch and when," said Richard Deverell, Controller of CBBC.

The CBeebies iPlayer follows the launch of the CBBC iPlayer, which is aimed at six to 12 year olds, in December.
