Watch PBS Kids On Your Roku

A lot of cord cutting parents have worried about finding good suitable entertainment for their kids via the Roku. There are plenty of choices for adults and teenagers, but most of the kid centric Roku channels contain content from the public domain that may not interest their kids.

One of the most popular blocks of kids entertainment today is PBS Kids, and it is available for free on your Roku device.

From the Roku channel page:

“PBS KIDS Video features more than 1,000 videos from over a dozen top PBS KID television series, including Curious George, The Cat in the Hat Knows A Lot About That, Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, Dinosaur Train, SUPER WHY!, Wild Kratts, Thomas The Train and Friends, and Sesame Street. PBS KIDS is committed to making a positive impact on the lives of children through curriculum-based entertainment with positive role models and content designed to nurture a child’s total well-being. With a 360-degree approach towards learning and reaching children, PBS KIDS leverages the full spectrum of media and technology to build knowledge, critical thinking, imagination, and curiosity. By involving parents, teachers, caregivers and communities as learning partners, PBS KIDS helps to empower children for success in school and in life.”

We checked out the channel and found each show has several full episodes and dozens of clips. The clips play in a continuous format allow your child to watch without interruption. The full episodes seem to be on a rotation, periodically episodes are removed and replaced with different episodes.

Also an added bonus the channel appears to be completely ad free, unlike most free Roku channels out there. The clips and episodes we have watched have not had any ads whatsoever. The channel also doesn’t require cable or satellite authentication like many network Roku channels.

You can add the channel via your Roku Channel store by searching PBS Kids or click here an go to their page on the Roku web site.
