WNED-TV Launches PBS KIDS 24/7

Beginning January 30 with the launch of WNED PBS KIDS 24/7, families will be able to watch their favorite PBS Kids shows anytime, anywhere with the introduction of a new free TV channel featuring quality, educational commercial-free programming round the clock. With this new channel and the digital live stream, children can watch their favorite series during primetime, after school and on weekends, when they watch twice as much TV as in the morning.

In addition to the new television channel, viewers will be also 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 and tablets. Nationally, the pbskids.org site is the #1 in the kids’ category for total view and minutes spent.

“We often hear from parents that they would like access to our PBS KIDS programming throughout the day, especially in the late afternoon and early evening hours when so much of what is broadcast is not appropriate for young children,” said Donald K. Boswell, President & CEO of WNED | WBFO. “We are so pleased that this new channel gives families a safe haven for their children and allows them to watch their favorite shows with the characters they love when it is most convenient for them.”

The WNED PBS KIDS 24/7 TV schedule includes popular favorites such as DANIEL TIGER’S NEIGHBORHOOD, ODD SQUAD, WILD KRATTS AND DINOSAUR TRAIN as well as PBS KIDS’ newest series NATURE CAT, READY JET GO! AND SPLASH AND BUBBLES. Classics including SESAME STREET AND ARTHUR, THOMAS & FRIENDS are also included in the daily lineup.

The 24/7 TV channel will also be beneficial to young children who are in hospitals and may not keep traditional hours because of medical treatments. Parents will also appreciate that, through the pbskids.org and the PBS KIDS App, children can also access their favorite shows via livestream while traveling.
