PBS Kids Channel Birthday!

Alabama Public Television is excited to celebrate the 1st birthday of our PBS Kids Channel. We launched the PBS Kids Channel on January 16th last year, and right away we heard amazing feedback from parents and grandparents around the state, thanking us for making PBS Kids programs available 24 hours a day.

Research has shown that PBS children's programs help kids start school better prepared to learn and succeed better throughout their school years, and the PBS Kids Channel makes sure children have access to these programs when they are most likely to watch TV - on evenings and weekends. These are also good times for parents and caregivers to watch these programs with their children.

The PBS Kids Channel is available free over-the-air on APT's digital channel 2 and on many cable systems around Alabama. Kids can also watch the channel live on a computer, tablet, or even on a smart phone with the APT App

We’re proud to say Happy First Birthday to the PBS Kids Channel – bringing fun and education to kids and families everywhere in Alabama.
