Streaming Video Update

In response to the COVID-19 crisis, PBS KIDS and Amazon are making temporary changes to our streaming offerings to give families more on-demand access to our educational content for free.

  • PBS KIDS has begun increasing the number of full episodes available on our station-cobranded streaming video platforms on pbskids.org, the PBS KIDS Video app, and connected TV devices. Eight full episodes of Sesame Street are now streaming on our platforms – up from the usual 4 episodes. Starting tomorrow, eight full episodes of Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood temporarily will be available – twice as many as our usual offering.
  • Temporarily, Amazon Prime Video has made select episodes from PBS KIDS series available for free. This offering will include 8 episodes of each of the PBS KIDS series on Amazon Prime, making them available to any user for a limited time – no Amazon Prime subscription required. Amazon’s PBS KIDS offering includes titles such as Arthur, Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, Dinosaur Train, Odd Squad, and Wild Kratts, among others.
