Foxtel has added two new kids channels, DreamWorks and PBS KIDS.

DreamWorks, launched with NBCUniversal International Networks, is a 24-hour channel dedicated to kids and family entertainment.

The channel, exclusive to Foxtel in Australia, will host shows such as Trolls: The Beat Goes On, Dragons: Riders of Berk, The Boss Baby: Back in Business, and The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle.

PBS KIDS, launched in collaboration with PBS Distribution, is an educational media brand and will offer shows such as Arthur, Molly of Denali, and Elinor Wonders Why.

“We’re delighted to be working with both NBCUniversal International Networks and PBS Distribution to bring these exciting new channels to our customers, with their compelling slate of award-winning and beloved series,” says Foxtel Group chief commercial and content officer Amanda Laing.

“Foxtel is committed to providing viewers the very best in family entertainment, and the addition of DreamWorks and PBS KIDS boosts our already strong suite of kids channels.

"It is yet another example of our continued mission to become an aggregator of the world’s best content on our platform.”
