    I don't care much about PBS Kids these days, but seeing Fetch and Clifford on the schedule got my attention since they haven't aired in my area in a while.

    While I still enjoy watching kids cartoons (and I have no shame from this), this schedul also has my attention because of the classic shows during the morning hours. Fetch!, Cyberchase, Clifford, WordGirl and Arthur on schedule got me excited after all those years since last watching, and I can't wait to see them again.

    It'll available as a subchannel on most PBS member stations. Not too sure about cable/satellite though.

    I guess this is a good use of a subchannel for kids who don't have Sprout. Happy to see Fetch! on the schedule.

    Too bad Dragon Tales won't be here, but hey! Clifford and Arthur is a win win. I also miss Between The Lions.

    What's disappointing to me is no Dragon Tales.

    Finally, PBS Kids name for a 24-hour network is back since PBS Kids Sprout (which the PBS Kids name dropped in 2009 with the new bumpers, but remained as a bug until 2013, maybe because Sprout was owned by Comcast in the late 2000s), even though, not the same as it used to be. I still like the logo and the old shows but the new ones is kinda bad. With 4 exceptions, Nature Cat, Arthur, WordGirl and Wild Kratts. Even if Arthur has horrible flash now, the show is still good. I'll give it a 5/10, a bit better but not like it used to be. If this was better, they should put like the old stuff, and they can use other programming like Oggy and the Cockroaches and Booba (which I'm not a fan of these shows), and shows from Sprout, like Pingu and The Hoobs. Boohbah and Teletubbies will be better for Nick Jr., why? becuase the new show is moved to Nick Jr,

    Soccer Ball feels mad how the channel isn't gonna last that long but since the channel didn't launch yet, I will keep the opinion the same until its ready.

    Don't know why he would say the channel won't last long considering it hasn't even launched yet, but I do know that the channel will still be called PBS Kids.

    I pretty sure PBS lost the rights to Dragon Tales a few years ago.

    I hope this channel don't get low ratings like the previous PBS Kids channel that was later know as Sprout.

    I'm guessing PBS Kids will be on cable and satellite providers, but it hasn't launched yet, so we can't say for sure that it won't be (unless an article I haven't seen mentioned it).

    I'm wondering if this means that my Kids Thirteen channel (local New York affiliate) is going to be rebranded into this. The free channel pretty much shows the same amount of content as the OP's schedule (barring Ruff Ruffman and Clifford), and it used to show some live action edutainment shows aimed at new parents (along with Hotwork Hotline).
    As a result, I assumed that every state had their own version.

    But hey, if we can get some exclusive shows and new promos for the channel, that would be nice.

    I don't know about every state, but there's a similar channel in my area (though it doesn't have Fetch and Clifford and has a few shows that won't be on the new channel). Though it seems my provider dropped it (or at least in my town, not sure about elsewhere), so I'm not sure what's going on.
