KERA will launch a new channel on Monday, Jan. 16, called KERA Kids 24/7.

KERA

The channel will live up to its name by offering PBS Kids programming 24 hours a day and seven days a week on Channel 13.2. It will also be available on some cable systems, including Spectrum and Suddenlink. The shows will also be available for streaming on PBSKids.org, the PBS Kids app and some devices.

The lineup will include favorites Wild Kratts (above), Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood, Odd Squad and the new Splash and Bubbles.

The PBS Kids block of programming will continue to air from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. each weekday on KERA. 

Last year, KERA overhauled its website for kids: kerakids.org. KERA Kids 24/7 will take the place of KERA World, which will cease airing starting Monday, Jan. 16.
