Did you know that starting today, PBS KIDS is launching their new 24/7 channel? It's part of their mission to make high-quality, educational television available to families at any time of the day or night.
Families will be able to access the new channel on-the-go with the digital live stream which complements on-demand clips and full episodes (these continue to be available for free on the PBS KIDS Video App and streaming via pbskids.org). Viewers will be able to watch the station-branded live stream through pbskids.org and on the PBS KIDS Video App, which is available on a variety of mobile devices, tablets and over-the-top platforms such as Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, Xbox One and Chromecast.
To be honest, I'd much rather my kids be watching PBS KIDS than most of the junk that's on now. IF my kids are going to be watching TV, I'd rather it be educational. And fortunately, my kids love shows like WILD KRATTS and ODD SQUAD.
While it is important to limit your child's screen time, it sure is nice to know that there is a channel you can let them watch without having to monitor it for commercials and inappropriate shows. Thanks, PBS KIDS!
