DHX Media will debut the new children’s subscription video on demand service Kids Room this summer.
The ad-free service, priced at $4.99 a month, will feature kid-friendly shows drawn from DHX Media’s library and will be available on Comcast’s Xfinity X1. Shows available on the service include “Slugterra,” “Polly Pocket,” “Strawberry Shortcake,” “Teletubbies,” “Fireman Sam,” “Storm Hawks,” “In the Night Garden,” “Kid vs. Kat,” “Chuck’s Choice,” “Endangered Species,” “Sabrina: The Animated Series,” “Angela Anaconda” and “Bob the Builder.”
X1 customers across the United States will be able to subscribe to and access the service over the Internet by saying “Kids Room” into their X1 voice remote or by finding it within the networks section of Xfinity on Demand. Kids Room will also be available on Xfinity Flex to Comcast’s Internet-only customers.
“Kids Room is a new offering for DHX Media, and we are delighted Comcast’s Xfinity customers will be among the first to enjoy it,” said Joe Tedesco, EVP and GM, DHX Television, in a statement. “As one of the world’s leading producers and owners of children’s content, we see Kids Room as a natural touchpoint to entertain kids with great programming in the expanding landscape of streaming opportunities. We’ve selected some really fun shows for the service from our deep content library, and we’re confident children are going to love Kids Room.”
