KBS N, a cable channel operated by KBS, launched a children’s channel on the 5th of May, which is also known as children’s day in Korea. Targeting at a young audience aged from two to twelve, the new channel aims to provide content that is educational as well as entertaining. The line-up of the new channel includes KBS produced programs such as ‘Flying Tent’, ‘Playground ZZAM’ and ‘Hutos’ in addition to internationally successful ‘Large Family’ from BBC and ‘Early Bloomers’ from BabyFrist TV, an American Children’s channel.
Another feature standing out in the programming of this brand new channel is the kindergarten zone, a set of programs aired at certain time for regular scheduling, in which parents and children share viewing experience for educational purpose. KBS Kids said that it would be a channel that parents want to recommend for children to watch. KBS Kids will add more variety to KBS N, which already runs four sub channels, KBS Drama, KBS Sports, KBS Prime and KBS Joy.
