National Geographic launched a paid National Geographic Kids streaming channel on Roku with high-quality content available ad-free for kids ages 2-11 via Roku. With a variety of content including a children’s travel show called Are We There Yet, series called Making Stuff the show focuses on how things are made, children’s survival show called Survive This, and animated titles such as Mama Mirabelle, Iggy Arbuckle, Toot and Puddle, and Amazing Animals, there’s something for every age and interest.
I love that the shows on the new National Geographic Kids Roku channel aren’t just for kids! Parents will enjoy watching with their children to learn about nature, animals, science, and global cultures while fostering a sense of exploration and adventure that continues as you go outside and explore together.
The National Geographic Kids streaming channel is available on Roku, making the content easily accessible for your children from the couch. Roku’s new $49 streaming stick gives your TV full streaming powers with a small HDMI stick that pulls content from the internet via its built-in WiFi. If you’re curious about how Roku works, take a look at my post: Roku’s Streaming Stick Gives Your HDTV Access to the Internet.
This online-only channel from National Geographic may be a model for the future. Rather than launching a new cable / satellite channel and then negotiating with cable and satellite operators to bundle it into their channel lineups, National Geographic Kids comes directly to you a-la-carte for $3.99 a month or $29.99 a year. You can get a 14 day free trial from You Tube and watch some sample episodes on Roku before signing up but it’s a great deal for some high quality educational content that is ad-free.
