PBS Kids 24/7
ThinkTV is excited to offer two new PBS Kids 24/7 channels in 2017! The new service, which will go live on January 16, will be available on-air on channels ThinkTV 16.5 and 14.3 as well as online at PBSKids.org and through the PBS Kids Video App.
The PBS KIDS 24/7 channel will include popular favorites, such as Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, Odd Squad, Wild Kratts, Dinosaur Train, Ready Jet Go!, Splash and Bubbles and many more. This new channel will be available in addition to the regularly scheduled PBS Kids shows airing on ThinkTV16 and ThinkTV14. In fact, 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.
The 24/7 PBS KIDS offering is an integral part of ThinkTV’s and PBS’ long-term vision for its children’s service and will build on the reach and impact local stations already have in their communities, where they provide essential services for kids, parents and teachers.
Following its initial launch, the live stream experience will expand to offer an integrated games feature, enabling children to toggle between a PBS KIDS show and an activity that extends learning – all in one seamless digital experience. The live stream and games feature is grounded in research demonstrating that measurable gains in learning are achieved when children engage with PBS KIDS content on multiple platforms. The games will align with the learning goals of each TV series, deepening children’s involvement and supporting learning.
