The subscription rate for the PBS Kids Prime Video Channel is $4.99 per month with an Amazon Prime or Prime Video subscription.
While learning basic scientific thinking skills, young viewers join their favorite dinosaur friends who travel beneath the Earth’s crust in Dinosaur Train: What’s at the Center of the Earth? streaming March 12. In this one-hour special, Mr. Conductor takes the Pteranodon family on a very special journey with the help of a new invention — the drill engine train. This amazing machine gives its passengers a front row seat as they dive deep into the Earth’s crust. With Mr. Conductor at the helm, the drill train makes several stops in their once-in-a-lifetime quest to find the perfect place for an underground train station. In each location, Buddy and his siblings — Shiny, Tiny, and Don — explore and discover fascinating qualities about layers, fossils, and minerals.
Volume 20 of “Wild Kratts” also streams beginning March 12. In this volume, Chris and Martin Kratt bring viewers along on new adventures as they explore wildlife from around the globe. When a coyote pup sneaks into the Tortuga, the Wild Kratts want to learn why this creature is so adaptable in “Adapto the Coyote.” In “Creature Tail Fail,” the Kratt Brothers find out what happens when a stowaway red squirrel gets loose on the African Savanna. Then, in “Tardigrade Xtreme,” the gang wonders if there’s life on other planets, so they head to space to look for clues. Back on Earth, Jimmy discovers a tardigrade, a microscopic creature that can survive in extreme and other-worldly conditions. The Wild Kratts then cruise across the African savanna in the Tortuga when a gust of wind blows a piece of paper out of Aviva’s hand and into an ostrich nest, in “Uh-oh Ostrich!”
Volume 5 of “Elinor Wonders Why” starts streaming March 19. Elinor ignites the curiosity of children ages 3-5, encouraging them to find answers using science inquiry skills. A mystery is afoot at Elinor’s school when one of the class plants grows in a zig zag shape. Elinor wonders why the plant has been growing this way in “Zig Zag Plant/Butterfly Drinks.” Then, in “Frozen Fish/Pirate Treasure,” Elinor and her friends wonder what happens to fish during the wintertime, after they see a lake that has frozen over. They don’t understand how the fish can survive and eventually learn about what happens to aquatic animals when the temperature drops. Plus, Elinor explores the desert with her grandmother and comes across a small, peculiar looking owl in “Burrowing Owl Girl/Olive’s Tree.”
New episodes of “Molly of Denali” debut March 26. In Volume 8, kids join Molly Mabray and her friends and family on adventures in Alaska. Tooey becomes worried when one of his sled dogs, Cali, isn’t feeling well. After he takes her to a vet, he receives some surprising news in “Puppy Palooza Part 1/Puppy Palooza Part 2.” Then, in “Going Toe to Toe with a Dinosaur/Sassy Ladies on Ice,” Molly and Vera join scientists as they visit a dinosaur fossil excavation site. Molly invites Oscar to go mountain climbing with her and Grandpa Nat in “Climb Every Mountain/Happy Trails,” and Molly and Tooey organize a funny face contest with their friends and family in “Big Sulky/The Funny Face Competition.”
