Until now you have had to pay to access this large library of content but starting December 15, Sesame Street Go will become free for everyone to use.
Here is the letter sent out to current subscribers:
By now youve probably heard the exciting news that Sesame Workshop is partnering with HBO. This means that HBO will be the premiere destination for all of Sesame Streets first-run episodes, as well as other Sesame Workshop shows such as Pinky Dinky Doo, The Electric Company, and Classic Sesame Street episodes. PBS will continue to broadcast Sesame Street episodes. New episodes will air on PBS nine months after they debut on HBO.
Our partnership with HBO provides us with the funding needed to continue production of Sesame Street as well as produce additional original content for kids, including more new episodes each season, a new Sesame Street spinoff series, and an all-new educational series.
This partnership means that Sesame Street Go will be FREE beginning December 15, 2015, with a lot of fun, educational content including Elmos World, Cookies Crumby Pictures, Super Grover 2.0, music videos, short clips, games, and more! The existing subscription service will no longer be available as of December 15, 2015.
We will stop accepting and auto-renewing subscriptions as of December 15, 2015.
We want to thank you for placing your trust in Sesame Street, and we hope your kids will continue to enjoy our content. Stay tuned for all-new Sesame Street episodes coming to HBO on January 16th.
Your Friends at Sesame Street Go
At this time there is no word on any planned changes for the service, so it should be expected that the shows, clips, games, and other features will still be available.
Currently Sesame Street Go is available on select phones, tablets, and set-top streaming devices.
