PBS Kids 24/7
CET is excited to be offering a new PBS Kids 24/7 channel in 2017! This new service is available in Greater Cincinnati through the PBS Kids Video App and on the channel currently known as ThinkTV14 Learn. CET and ThinkTV are combined organization called Public Media Connect and ThinkTV14 serves the Cincinnati market. CET’s current three channels – CET, CET Arts and CET Create – will not change as part of this new service.
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 CET 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 CET’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.
