Amazon and PBS have announced that Amazon Prime Video is now the exclusive “premium subscription streaming” home for PBS KIDS shows. The explicit use of the words “premium subscription streaming” is important because it means PBS KIDS shows will still be available on PBS channels, as well as through PBS KIDS apps. The exclusivity only applies to other “premium” streaming services, meaning you’ll no longer find PBS KIDS shows on services like Netflix and Hulu.
Many of PBS’s child programming was already available through Prime Video, but this new multi-year agreement is going to bring even more shows to the service. Shows like Nature Cat are now available on Prime Video for the first time, with some shows, like Ready Jet Go!, schedualed to arrive in the near future.
