Starting next week, parents and their kids will have a few more ways to get to Sesame Street.
Beginning Monday, 22 PBS Kids programs will be available 24 hours a day on the station’s 20.2 digital channel and on a live stream at wfyi.org/pbskids, according to a news release.
The 24/7 programming will also be available through the PBS Kids video app, Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, Xbox One and Chromecast.
“This is an exciting development for families all over central Indiana,” WFYI president and CEO Lloyd Wright said in a statement. “PBS Kids is the country’s most trusted provider of educational media for children, and now it will be available on televisions, tablets, smart phones or computers day or night, at home or wherever else you may be.”
The online live stream will also include a games feature, to be introduced later this year, that will allow kids to watch a PBS Kids show and play a game or complete an activity.
The current program lineup for PBS Kids on WFYI 1 will not change, according to the release.
