The new subscription is perfectly timed for families planning summer vacations. And whether your family trips will take place by air, land or sea, kids will be looking for something to do as they await arrival to their vacation destination.

 

Pinna is offering premium subscriptions featuring a variety of benefits for individual shows and curated groups of shows called channels directly on Apple Podcasts. With the Apple Podcasts Subscriptions platform, families can purchase ad-free subscriptions to three Pinna channels, tailored to specific age groups with original podcasts, available for $3.99 per month.

 

The channels include Podcast Playdates, for ages 3–5; Boredom Busters, for ages 6–8; and Chill or Thrills, ages 9–12. Some of the original content includes popular podcasts like The Unexplainable Disappearance of Mars Patel; Grimm, Grimmer, Grimmest; The Totally Unauthorized Minecraft Fan Show; Time for Kids Explains; Quentin & Alfie’s ABC Adventures; and Opal Watson Private Eye.

 

“Pinna is thrilled to be on the forefront of this exciting launch in collaboration with Apple,” said Maggie McGuire, CEO, Pinna. “Apple Podcasts Subscriptions will allow us to continue the expansion of our global reach, giving us a unique opportunity to tailor channels to specific ages and interests. Moreover, we’re excited to be working with a brand that is equally committed to delivering high-quality, innovative and exceptional storytelling to consumers around the world.”
