CBS All Access has dramatically overhauled their children's programming with a new expansion of Nickelodeon and Nick Jr. content. New kids programming added to the service includes nearly 800 episodes of Nick Jr. favorites like PAW Patrol, Blaze and the Monster Machines, Blue's Clues, Bubble Guppies, Dora the Explorer, and Shimmer and Shine. If that wasn't enough, CBS All Access has announced a few new features that will make it easier for kids to access the new content without parents having to worry about running into adult content.
The new family-friendly features include the ability to create up to six profiles per account and manage each profile using Kids Mode, which allows parents to create profiles that limit content to older children or younger children based on content ratings. The service's existing parental PIN controls' option for mature content, which locks access to certain content based on its content rating, will also still be available to use across profiles. Rob Gelick, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Streaming Services and Chief Product Officer, ViacomCBS Streaming had this to say about the new expansion
"We are thrilled to bring even more popular kids hits from Nick Jr. and Nickelodeon to the service, in advance of our upcoming rebrand as Paramount+. We've already seen incredible growth in viewership since we began expanding our offering of children's programming on the service. With today's new product enhancements, like 'Kids Mode' and multiple profiles, we can create customized experiences for each member of the household, while giving our subscribers even more opportunities to discover and watch family programming together, and allowing parents additional peace of mind with the ability to further customize what programming is available to their kids."
CBS All Access revealed just a taste of the aforementioned 800 episodes of children's programming to the service. They include select past seasons of Nick Jr. favorites PAW Patrol, Blaze and the Monster Machines, Blue's Clues, Bubble Guppies, Dora the Explorer, Bubble Guppies, Shimmer and Shine, and more. This is a huge update for subscribers who have been asking for more children's content since the service first launched.
All CBS All Access children's programming is available commercial-free and the new library content being added to the streaming service today. It joins an already robust roster of over 1,000 episodes of library and original children's programming, including the service's previously launched original children's series, WildBrain's Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, Boat Rocker's new Danger Mouse and new editions of Lassie, George of the Jungle and Mr. Magoo from DreamWorks Animation's Classic Media. In other words, CBS All Access has a massive library of programming for all ages that spans generations.
Original children's programming on CBS All Access will continue to expand with the first spin-off from one of ViacomCBS' biggest global franchises ever, Nickelodeon's SpongeBob SquarePants, when new series Kamp Koral premieres in early 2021. The service will also be the exclusive home to The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run, the movie that follows SpongeBob SquarePants, his best friend Patrick Star, and the rest of the gang from Bikini Bottom in the first-ever all CGI SpongeBob motion picture event.
