What is” PBS kids”?

“PBS kids” is a channel that is purely designed for the curious little champ at your home. It’s a kids’ channel, so obvious from the name, but once you see the contents offered by the channel, you will understand that it is not like any other kids channel that makes them live in a fantasy world rather than kindling the curiosity in them. You have also got games that can develop your kids’ motor skills. All of the contents in the channel are educational, but in a fun way, so that your kids enjoy all those learning.

In addition to all these perks, the contents are free to watch. Yes, you heard that right. There is not even any need for personal details like your credit card details or even your e-mail ID. Everything you would ever need is a username, password, and security question to create an account. Your username should not reveal any of your personal details. It should be more generic and something that you and your kid can easily remember.
