PBS Kids is the brand for children's programming aired by the Public Broadcasting Service in the United States founded in 1993. As with all PBS programming, PBS Kids programming is non-commercial. Along with the block of programming on PBS, PBS Kids was a separate television network, founded in the fall of 1999 and was targeted to children aged 2-7 years. The PBS Kids Channel ran for six years and was largely funded by DirecTV.
The channel ceased broadcast on September 26, 2005, in favor of a new commercial joint venture, PBS Kids Sprout, which is a partnership owned by Comcast About half of PBS TV stations still program a children's channel themselves over their multicasting service, such as WNET, WHYY, WNED, UNC-TV, Georgia Public Broadcasting, Twin Cities Public Television, WGBH, WQED, and WMHT. On PBS, two blocks of programming are currently included in PBS Kids, including PBS Kids GO! and the PBS Kids preschool block, and the former block, PBS Kids Bookworm Bunch, which was launched in 2000 and canceled in 2004.
