PBS kids sprout is our favorite kids channel. We absolutely LOVE it. It's not regular PBS. It's a cable and satellite only offering that has PBS programming as well as other kids shows including the Berenstein Bears, Caillou, Thomas and friends etc. Their own "shows" including the goodnight show with Nina (Michele Lepe) and Star, as well as the sunny side show, the sharing show etc are very good.
The only catch is that if you subscribed to DirecTV after February 8th you need the Choice ultimate package.
