Now going into its 11th season this August on Aussie airwaves, Hi-5 is moving into the digital world with its new site at www.hi-5.com.au.
hi-5.com.au features background info on the cast members, along with activities, news, a parental section, Hi-5 touring dates and video players featuring the group’s songs and messages. The new site will give viewers an exclusive look at the Australian series along with the new songs in the Song of the Week section, soon to feature videos of the cast performances so viewers can also learn the dance moves.
Down the road, the site will also feature a Behind the Scenes Tour with interviews with the Australian cast members, complete with games to entertain and teach children.
The new, safe site was built by digital services company TigerSpike in conjunction with Hi-5 Operations, and will also be accessible through the ninemsn portal. Hi-5 series 11 will broadcast on Nine Network Australia from the end of August.
