Published on: 22nd May 2015

Sky offers around 700 episodes of children’s shows but is set to expand by around 600% to around 4,000 over the coming months.

Dora_AThe broadcaster is to show more episodes of Dora the Explorer, Ben 10, In the Night Garden and other hit shows.

The increase in content will be accessible via an on-demand service which will be flagged as a new channel tab on Sky’s electronic programme guide.

Sky claims that these changes will make it the biggest children’s TV broadcaster in the UK.

Luke Bradley-Jones, Sky’s brand director of TV products, commented: “Parents want the convenience of a quick and simple way to access lots of episodes all in one place. That’s why we’re massively expanding the variety and number of shows available on demand and putting them front and centre of the Sky+ TV guide. For our customers it means a huge library of kids’ shows.”
