South Africa might get it. However Southern Africa and the rest of Africa's is very different, just because it launches there doesn't mean anything will here
Always entertaining Kids being it's forte, DStv has added PBS Kids a new education based entertainment channel, offering the opportunity for Children to explore new ideas and new worlds. Starting May 22nd, on channel 313 on all our packages. Enjoy

Thanks, I know the channel is not yet available on your decoder if you read carefully I said it looks like you're launching the channel SOON. It's currently on the i-Plate so I assume its on an early test phase. It wouldn't shock me if the channel launches in June immediately after the content expires on DStv Now.
Here's a photo and link of PBS Kids on the i-Plate all the shows except for Fetch! With Ruff Ruffman is part of the channel's lineup. So glad the kids have something besides CN and Disney Channel to tune into this school holidays.
PBS Kids is currently only available on the following channels per country: (Channel DTH: 313 – DTT: 65,Ghana – 165 & Uganda - 358 ).
The channel is available on DStv Now in South Africa. It is not yet available on our decoders.
MultiChoice Kenya advertised the channel back in March while MultiChoice South Africa recently added the channel on the i-plate section. So we could expect the channel in June, a perfect time for the school holidays. The lineup on the i-plate is no different to what's seen on DStv Now except for the schedule.
Seems like PBS Kids is coming to DStv with a channel number 318 they've even uploaded info about it and a schedule online. There was hardly any info about it on their website. Makes me more convinced its coming since they got Ginx Esports a channel of its own and TV Mall managed somehow.
Normally when something is added for DStv Now only, it is labelled as Channel 100, not an actual channel number.
It seems that the new PBS shows actually outnumber the existing Kids content on DStv Now.
Channel 318 wouldn't be a bad choice for a kids channel with a heavy "educational" slant.
