PBS Continues Rolling Out its New 24/7 Children’s Network




Almost a year ago PBS announced it would be adding a new 24/7 children’s network to its over-the-air TV lineup. Now, after being available in a long list of test markets, PBS is rolling out it out nationally.

The new PBS Kids channel will bring a 24/7 feed of PBS kids shows to your TV. You will also be able to get a live stream of the PBS Kids channels on a variety of devices such as Roku, Fire TV, Apple TV, and Android TV through the PBS app.

“Television continues to be the most widely used platform for children’s educational content,” Steve Benger a program manager with a PBS station in Texas said. “The programs featured on PBS Kids are an excellent resource for helping children learn about reading, writing, math and science, as well as how to deal with their emotions. These shows are popular because they showcase learning as fun and exciting, with characters that kids can relate to.”

The PBS Kids 24/7 channel will include popular shows such as “Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood,” “Odd Squad,” “Wild Kratts,” and “Dinosaur Train,” along with “Arthur,” “Cyberchase,” “Sid The Science Kid,” and “Sesame Street.” Benger said the schedule of children’s programming on the primary PBS channel will be different from the 24/7 channel, offering families a variety of options.

So if you have not done a channel scan recently it may be time for you to see if you have some new channels available through your antenna.
