PBS Kids coming to DStv?

PBS Kids coming to DStv?

Seems like PBS Kids might be coming to DStv soon. 

Theres quite a lot of new content on DStv Now labeled as such with the channel number 318.

Re: PBS Kids coming to DStv?

Maybe it's just for DSTV Now or for the school holidays - the channel number is a bit strange not being 312. I'm more surprised though that there are still kids programs left we are not already getting across 11 channels!

 

Octo-LNB to 2 x 5.2 switches. Explora1 (Prim) & HDPVR 2P (Sec), Samsung 55" UA55F8500 Smart 3D LED TV, HDMI picture & audio via Onkyo TX-NR626
receiver. Explora1 in bedroom, HDMI picture & audio to Samsung 32" UA32F5500 Smart LED TV. 100Mbps M-Web fibre (OpenServe).

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.

I hope its permanent. But I think its holidays only

312 is a ROA (Rest Of Africa) equivalent of 305.

Seems to be a permanent addition on Catch Up as the content only expires at the end of May, presumably next year.
