Streamer CBS All Access has begun its rollout of commercial free children’s programming. The service also announced today that a library of Nickelodeon programming will be available to subscribers, starting with select titles in January.
Now streaming at CBS All Access are new seasons of “Cloudy Without a Chance of Meatballs” and the new “Danger Mouse,” as well as library programming including the original “Danger Mouse,” “Bob the Builder,” “Inspector Gadget,” “Madeline,” “Heathcliff,” and “The Adventures of Paddington Bear.”
“Bringing children’s programming to CBS All Access is a significant step toward providing even more value for our subscribers and now for their children as well,” said Marc DeBevoise, President and COO, CBS Interactive. “We’re bringing to market a fantastic roster of exclusive originals along with a library of marquee series for families, and we look forward to continuing to expand our children’s programming offering, especially with the future addition of incredible programming from Nickelodeon.”
Parental pin controls are available across CBS.com, the CBS app for iOS and Android, Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, Apple TV*, Roku and Xbox One. Parental controls will be available across additional connected TV platforms in the near future.
CBS All Access first announced plans to launch children’s programming on the service in August, teaming up with WildBrain (formerly DHX Media) and Boat Rocker Studios to license the service’s first two original children’s series, WildBrain’s “Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs,” produced with Sony Pictures Animation, and Boat Rocker’s new “Danger Mouse,” produced with BBC Children’s Productions, as well as more than 1,000 episodes of library programming.
