Starting on Monday, January 16 you will be able to stream free, localized PBS Kids children’s programming from KLRU! The effort is KLRU’s latest initiative to support early learning in the community. This streaming services will make it easy for Central Texas children to watch their favorite series such as Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood and Nature Cat during primetime and other after-school hours when viewing among families is high.
Viewers will be able to watch the KLRU-branded live stream through pbskids.org and on the free PBS KIDS Video App, which is available on a variety of mobile devices, and tablets. Soon after launch, the live stream will be available on over-the-top platforms such as Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, Xbox One and Chromecast.
Following its initial launch, the localized 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.
PBS stations reach more kids aged 2-5, more moms with children under 6 years old and more children from low-income families than any other kids TV network. With its new 24/7 digital offerings, KLRU will build on this reach and impact.
