    PBS MEMBER STATIONS ACROSS THE COUNTRY JOIN THE PBS KIDS SPROUT LOCAL MARKETING AFFILIATION PROGRAM

    -- Forty-five PBS Stations in Top 60 DMAs to Support and Present PBS KIDS Sprout in Local Communities Alongside Their Local Cable Provider --


    National PBS Meeting, Las Vegas, NV - April 11, 2005 - Following the official launch of PBS KIDS Sprout, the first-ever preschool digital channel and video-on-demand service, PBS today announced that 45 local PBS stations in the Top 60 DMAs will participate in the PBS KIDS Sprout Local Marketing Affiliation Program (LMAP) -- representing nearly 50 percent of U.S. television households. The marketing affiliate program provides stations with an integral local cross-promotional and marketing role in expanding the reach of PBS KIDS programming through PBS KIDS Sprout. The announcement was made at the PBS Showcase in Las Vegas, a national meeting of more than 770 public television leaders.

    PBS KIDS Sprout, created in partnership with Comcast, Sesame Workshop and HIT Entertainment, is brought to individual communities through their local cable operator, or via satellite, in association with PBS stations around the country. In addition to offering 24-hour access to signature PBS station programs in their communities, the new service offers long-term revenue potential to be invested back into further strengthening the local PBS stations' commercial-free children's blocks - PBS KIDS and PBS KIDS GO! - delivered to American households free and over-the-air. PBS local member stations continue to be the primary home to the educational programs that children love and parents trust.

    The stations participating in the Local Marketing Affiliation Program take a more active role in the partnership through cross-promotion activities with PBS KIDS Sprout and their local cable operator. Under the terms of the agreement, these PBS stations will broadcast FCC compliant on-air spots to build awareness of PBS KIDS Sprout. In addition, PBS KIDS Sprout will run cross-channel spots and print ads promoting the association with local PBS stations. One station in each market will also receive co-branding presence on the VOD menu user interface initially in Comcast markets, with other operators expected to follow. When the technology is available, participating stations will have the opportunity to insert local spots on PBS KIDS Sprout cross-promoting their station. All local PBS stations have the option to work with their local cable provider to coordinate community announcements and events around PBS KIDS Sprout.

    "PBS KIDS Sprout provides a second home to some of the best-known and most-loved preschool television shows available at any time families want to watch them," said Wayne Godwin, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, PBS. "The marketing initiative marks an unprecedented collaboration between local PBS stations' broadcast and cable systems making a powerful community impact that greatly benefits both partners and the viewers in each market. Having completed a successful first phase of this marketing initiative with a significant number of stations signing on, we look forward to opening up the program to more stations across the country."
    "Comcast recognizes the importance and value of the relationship PBS stations have with their members, and we share a commitment to quality children's entertainment," said Amy Banse, Executive Vice President, Content Development, Comcast. "We are dedicated to making a successful local impact with PBS stations as a partner in presenting PBS KIDS Sprout to communities around the country."

    In addition to the new PBS KIDS Sprout On Demand service that premiered on April 1, 2005, offering parents 24-hour access to the programs they trust most, a digital cable channel will launch this fall -- making PBS KIDS Sprout a great place for parents and their little ones to enjoy the wonders of early childhood any time they want.

    Brought to viewers in association with local PBS stations, PBS KIDS Sprout On Demand now is available for no additional charge to digital cable customers in Comcast markets with VOD service, and will also be available in markets served by Insight Communications. The VOD service will offer 50 hours of programs a month, with twenty-five percent of the programs updated every two weeks, so families will always have a fresh selection of episodes to watch together. The new digital channel will launch this fall on Comcast, Insight Communications and DirecTV, and additional cable and satellite carriage will be announced later this year.
    Among the popular and award-winning series that will be available anytime through PBS KIDS Sprout are Sesame Street®, Bob the BuilderTM, Barney & FriendsTM, Thomas & FriendsTM, Angelina BallerinaTM, Sagwa: The Chinese Siamese CatTM, CaillouTM, The Berenstain BearsTM, Jay Jay the Jet PlaneTM, TeletubbiesTM, Dragon TalesTM and many others.

    So anyway the bad guys are evil goblins who use magic to creat mischief (they also have pointed ears).

    PBS is going over to the dark side - me thinks.

      Noddy used to be on the Indianapolis PBS station when we lived in Central Indiana.

      I found him very disturbing. I was also not a fan of Caillou--my kids just seemed to emulate his whining without learning any of his lessons.
      "It would have been difficult for us to discuss it with his dick in my mouth, so evidently I don't know him that well."

          We are lacking in the cable department.

          For awhile we had a lot of Blue's Clues videos though. I made my daughter and her friend Blue and Magenta costumes the Halloween before Blue and Magenta had really taken off and no one got who they were. "Oh look--they're puppies! Why are they blue and pink?"

          We also went through a big Veggie Tales phase in our house. These days the little one digs the Leap Frog DVDs, but she still likes Clifford. I wish they were still making those...

              My kid loves the Noggin shows and, to a lesser extent, the Disney chanels. We generally pass on Nickelodian.
              On my mind: How can I shut up the singing English graduate student? How many more lossess will KU's basketball team have than its football team? How will the Rams front office screw up this year?

                We noticed a lot more whining from my kids to when they watched Caillou.
