 Now Available! 

 

WVIA Public Media is launching new, free localized 24/7 children’s services on January 16, 2017. Provided by WVIA, the free services include a new TV channel and live stream on digital platforms. The effort is WVIA’s latest initiative to support early learning in the community. WVIA Public Media will broadcast PBS KIDS shows 24 hours a day on an additional television channel and offer a live stream, making it easy for Northeastern Pennsylvania and Central Susquehanna Valley children to watch their favorite series during primetime and other after-school hours when viewing among families is high. Viewers will be able to watch the WVIA-branded live stream through our website  and on the PBS KIDS Video App, which is available on a variety of mobile devices, tablets and over-the-top platforms such as Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, Xbox One and Chromecast. The live stream complements on-demand clips and full episodes, which will continue to be available for free on the PBS KIDS Video App and streaming via pbskids.org.

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.
