On May 9, Jim Henson Family TV, the new paid channel from The Jim Henson Co., launched on YouTube. For the first time, the new channel, featuring ad-free full episodes of hit shows like Sid the Science Kid and Fraggle Rock, will provide hours of family-friendly Henson content for computer, phone, tablet, and TV viewing, all for the introductory price of $2.99/month or $24.99/year.
Launching on the same day, Jim Henson TV para la familia en espanol will debut Henson content in Spanish. Coming soon, subscribers to the English channel can upgrade to include the Spanish channel for an additional fee.
Additionally, Jim Henson Family TV proudly offers YouTube’s highest level of content filtering, automatically engaging YouTube’s “safety mode” which identifies and filters out recommendations and links that may be inappropriate for young viewers. This feature allows subscribers to enjoy Henson content in a more contained environment and disengages automatically when a subscriber leaves the channel.
Along with full episodes of favorite Henson titles, the channel will include curated playlists, behind the scenes clips, music videos, podcasts and parenting tips. With more content scheduled to be added, Jim Henson Family TV launches with the following line up:
