It all started with a friendly tank engine named Thomas.
With current-season hits from Nickelodeon and past favorites from PBS and Lionsgate, including “Thomas & Friends,” “Caillou,” and “SpongeBob SquarePants” now available commercial-free to Hulu Plus subscribers, the Hulu team knew that we wanted to highlight all of this content in a better way for kids.
After all, we love these shows just as much as your kids do. And so we’ve decided to showcase this content (at 43 shows and counting!) in a new section called Hulu Kids. Now it’s easy for kids to access their favorite shows on Hulu Plus: Just point your browser to www.hulu.com/kids or click on “Kids” within our Browse menu. All of the videos and recommended content within Hulu Kids are restricted to commercial-free children’s programming.
For Hulu Plus subscribers logged in on the Hulu website, Hulu Kids features our popular “Shows You Watch” tray so little ones can quickly jump to their favorite shows. There are categories to browse, like “Dino Time” for videos featuring “Barney” and the lovable reptiles from “Dinosaur Train,” and “Cartoon Favorites” for shows like “Arthur” and “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles“. (Yep, they’re back.) You can also scroll through shows from Nickelodeon and PBS, or simply browse through all of our shows in a grid format.
The launch of Hulu Kids comes with a new round of updates for the PlayStation 3. This release brings Hulu Kids to the living room, letting your family enjoy the same commercial-free children’s shows from your couch. For those who use a Blu-ray remote with the PS3, you can use that remote with the Hulu Plus app as well.
If you are not already a Hulu Plus subscriber, you can sign up for one week free to check out the offering on Hulu Kids (plus all of the other perks). In addition to great current season programming from top networks and the new Hulu Kids section, Hulu Plus also offers ad-supported family-friendly programming in our “Family” genre.
