Sky’s new children’s channel will take over the slot currently occupied by Baby TV, next door to CBeebies.
The channel will launch on Monday 13th February 2023 and will target the under 7s.
Sky Kids’ schedule includes Morph, Pip and Posy, Obki and Ama’s Story, as well as franchise favourites such as Where’s Wally, Miffy and Clifford The Big Red Dog.
The channel was first announced late last year. Now alongside confirming the exact launch day, Sky has also unveiled a raft of brand new shows to air on the channel. This includes a slot to rival CBeebies’ bedtime routine.
Sky Kid’s wind-down/bedtime slot includes Dreamflight, a mindful, mood-enhancing collection of short nature films, carefully crafted and designed to promote a sense of well-being in young children with a star-studded line-up of narrations by Julie Walters, David Harewood and Sophie Okonedo.
BooSnoo! is a unique blend of calm and exploration providing the chance to reset. The show is inspired by elements that engage children. Those watching will follow the journey of a red ball as it moves through fantastic landscapes and machines filled with music, art, space, water and more, captivating interest from start to finish.
