NBC Universal has launched Sprout Now into the Play Store, giving parents all over the country the option to let their kids stream a full episode of their favorite series and get a couple moments' rest. The app comes with a full program guide, plenty of shows, and enough content to occupy children for up to four, five minutes tops.

Of course, there are caveats. Parents need to have a TV subscription of some kind in order to get access to the shows. A large number of providers are supported, with major players such as Charter, Comcast, Cox, DirecTV, and Verizon making the list. But the high cost of the monthly bill isn't the largest price adults will have to pay to use this app. No, the far more punishing fee is having to live with Chica's incessant chirping day after day.
